Most Improved-Corp - Safety Excellence Award
EaglePicher Technologies, LLC - Joplin
The Missouri Association of Manufacturers Safety Excellence Award Program was developed to help cultivate a strong focus on accident prevention, maintaining safe and healthy work environments, and to share best practice examples with other manufacturers. The goal of the Safety Award program is to recognize manufacturing companies and individuals who are having a significant impact on health and safety in the workplace.
The Most Improved Safety Award recognizes a manufacturer that demonstrates the greatest, sustained improvement of safety efforts in the past three years over previous years, which have led to measurable reductions in work-related injuries and illnesses, as verified by workers' compensation loss run reports and annual worker hours.
This Award is being presented EaglePicher for their on-going commitment to safety improvement through the completion of the 10 Behavior Based Safety Observation Checklists and the continued engagements of the safety committee completing 60 PPE assessments across the facility, along with having over 30 employees who are currently CPR/First Aid certified. These efforts, as well as many others implemented, are all part of the company’s strategic goal to reduce injuries and incidents – shooting for ZERO injuries.
On behalf of Connell Insurance, proud sponsor of the Safety Excellence Award Program, and the Missouri Association of Manufacturers – we are honored to have this opportunity to recognize and celebrate EaglePicher for their commitment to the health and safety of the employees of the organization, and to the manufacturing industry.
