QVC Lauded For Safety In N.C. Center

June 17, 2016

Who says we never write anything good about QVC?

The North Carolina Department of Labor has given the No. 1 home shopping network’s distribution center in Rocky Mount, N.C., a Gold Award, the state’s highest annual honor for workplace safety.

The award recognizes public and private companies across the state that maintain exemplary safety records, including an incidence rate at least 50 percent below the average for their industry (as measured by days away from work, restricted activity and job transfers).

This is the fifth consecutive time Rocky Mount has won the Gold Award, and sixth time overall.

“Nothing is more important than the safety of our team members at QVC,” said Bill Stanulis, Rocky Mount general manager. “This award is a direct reflection of our safety culture at the site, as well as the work, dedication, care and commitment that our team members are displaying every day towards safety.”

As someone who has written a number of stories about safety violations at North Jersey companies, endangering workers, we tip our hat to QVC.
