Multiple locations of General Shale has received the North Carolina Department of Labor’s (NCDOL) top annual award for safety.

Additionally, the General Shale retail location in Wilmington received the Gold Award for the seventh consecutive year. Its Brickhaven production facility, near Moncure, received a Silver Award.

To qualify for a safety award, a company must have had no fatalities during the calendar year at the location for which the award was given, and must have maintained an incidence rate that is at least 50 percent below the average for its particular industry group.
