Kennametal has been named one of America’s Safest Companies by EHS Today, a leading environment, health and safety industry publication. Kennametal was selected among America’s Safest Companies for its comprehensive commitment to employee health and safety. The award serves as an affirmation of Kennametal’s 100% Safe philosophy—a philosophy that encompasses the company worldwide from senior leadership to every employee.
“Our people are our competitive advantage, and a 100% safe work environment helps ensure we are protecting our most valued assets every day,” said Kennametal Chairman, President and CEO Carlos Cardoso. “Safety is good business, and it is no coincidence that firms with excellence in safety are among the top financial performers. Working safely is about all of us, and we are committed to creating a culture where we work 100% safe, 100% of the time to continue to deliver on our promise to each other, our customers and our shareholders.” Kennametal’s designation as one of America’s Safest Companies is only the most recent such award for the company, which has been recognized time and again for its exceptional commitment to safety in the United States and around the world.
