Hamel, Minn.-based Loram Maintenance of Way Inc. said it has logged more than 4 million man-hours, over a 2 ½-year span, without a “lost-time injury,” with the injury-free span still growing.


The accomplishment complements Loram’s recent receipt of the the 2009 Minnesota Governor’s Award for Safety. Loram has received this award in 13 of the last 14 years.  It also has ben honored with the 2008, 2007, 2005, and 2004 Gold NRC award for safety, a First Place Safety Award from NRC in 2000, and a 97% score in 2008 from a Liberty Mutual Insurance safety audit, reportedly the highest safety score ever obtained by a company in this audit.
