June 3, 2015

OPW, a Dover company and a global leader in fluid-handling solutions, announced that employees of its manufacturing facility in Hamilton, OH, were honored for achievements in safety by the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation and the Greater Hamilton Safety Council at the 72nd Annual Greater Hamilton Safety Council Awards Banquet. During the ceremony, OPW received three awards for outstanding safety: the 100% Award, the Group Award, and the Special Award.

For nearly 30 years, Hamilton OH, has served as OPW's global headquarters and as a vital manufacturing hub. Products manufactured in OPW’s Hamilton facility, such as nozzles, breakaways, aboveground storage (AST) equipment, and clean energy fueling products, are used to safely dispense and control petroleum-derived fluids domestically and globally.

"The city of Hamilton and the state of Ohio have been great partners of OPW," said Mark Gerardi, director of operations at OPW Above Ground Retail Fueling. "And with their support, the support of OPW's parent company, and the support of every employee, this facility has surpassed 1.5-million hours worked without a lost-time accident. Incredible."

OPW thanks the more than 200 companies that are part of Greater Hamilton Safety Council and the more than 250,000 companies covered by the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation for their pursuit of better safety and quality of life for their employees.
