Kitagawa NorthTech Inc. has been awarded a certificate of safety from the National Tooling & Machining Association (NTMA) for its safety performance record in 2017. The award indicates that the company’s safety record is among the best in the workholding industry.

Veronica Horta, operations coordinator for the company, says “We are proud to have earned the Safety Performance Certificate from the NTMA for our 2017 safety record. As an in-house manufacturer of workholding, fixtures, chuck modifications, rotary tables and hydraulic cylinders, achieving the highest safety performance is our number one goal.”

The purpose of the NTMA’s Annual Safety Award Survey is to present the top-performing companies with a safety award certificate that can be displayed on-site, as well as provide NTMA with the composite data that will enable it to represent awarded companies with OSHA and other regulatory agencies. A company’s eligibility to receive the award is determined by a calculation using the number of injuries versus the total number of employee hours worked in that calendar year.
