MC’s New Industries sees 1 million man-hours without lost time accident
New Industries has achieved the major safety milestone of 1 million man-hours without a lost-time accident.
Bill New, New Industries’ president, said, “This is a tremendous accomplishment for our company, and I am proud of our employees’ dedication to working safely.”
He added, “This achievement is especially significant as we have nearly doubled our headcount during the last 3½ years. It is a tribute to our safety committee, front-line supervision and, indeed, every member of our team that we have been able to sustain our safety culture while incorporating so many new employees.”
Cody Rink of New Industries said, “This is a huge safety accomplishment but not our first recognition for safety.” New Industries has been honored with the Safety Award of Achievement by the Steel Tank Institute/Steel Plate Fabricators Association, a trade organization, in three of the last four years, Rink said.
The award is given to companies that achieve a 10 percent or more reduction in the rate of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s total recordable incidents compared to their average rate for the previous three years.
