BELGRADE — Hammond Lumber Co. has been awarded the National Safety Council’s 2020 Industry Leader Award in four of its branches for outstanding safety.

The award goes to the top 5% of NSC member companies, units and facilities that have qualified for the Occupational Excellence Achievement Award based on 2019 safety data. Winners are selected based on NAICS code, lowest total incident rate and employee work hours. Hammond’s Belgrade, Damariscotta, Farmington and Machias branches recognized as NSC Industry Leaders for no lost-time accidents last year are a reflection of the company’s emphasis on safety.

In Belgrade, Hammond’s headquarters, that branch has twice won the NSC’s Million Work Hours Award after going more than one million consecutive hours without a job-related injury or illness that resulted in lost time.

Hammond is a fourth-generation, family-owned company with 820 employees and 21 locations. Committed to workplace safety, the lumber company has received numerous accolades, including 2020 ProSales Dealer of the Year and the National Safety Council’s 2020 Occupational Excellence Achievement Award.
