The BASF sites in Chattanooga received the Governor’s Award of Excellence for Workplace Safety by working all of 2016 without a lost time, restricted duty or medical workplace injury or illness.
The award honors Tennessee employers and employees who meet a required number of hours without workplace injuries serious enough to cause an employee to miss a day of work or restrict normal job activities.
BASF employs 130 people at two sites in Chattanooga that produce polymer dispersions that are commonly used in adhesives, carpet backing, foams, paper coatings and asphalt modifiers.
BASF qualified by employees working a minimum of 300,000 hours without a lost-time or restricted duty workplace injury or illness at both locations located on Polymer Drive and Lost Mound Drive.
