Mulzer Crushed Stone announced today that employees have completed 1.4 Million work hours without incurring an occupational injury or illness that resulted in days away from work or death. “This momentous milestone is being celebrated company-wide and is a testament to the safety driven goals put in place by our management and executed by our entire team, making Mulzer Crushed Stone Safety a way of life,” commented President Ken Mulzer, Jr.
Creating a culture of safety with milestone results in a construction materials business is not always an easy road to navigate, but Mulzer Crushed Stone has a team of Safety Professionals who are known around the workplace for creating fun, innovative programs and techniques to train and educate employees on all things safety. For example, our Team has found that a little competition can go a long way in classroom training over topics that can often be somewhat lackluster. Who doesn’t love a good video game or quiz contest against your co-workers?
Other unique aspects to the Safety Program include designated equipment specific training employees who instruct, monitor and test new employees to verify that they are ready to work independently.
“If you think about it, quarry, asphalt and concrete operations can be highly dangerous work for a multitude of reasons, but our employees take the topic serious and make safety priority #1,” Mulzer, Jr. added. “They don’t get complacent. We have 1.4 Million hours of zero lost time to prove it and we congratulate each and every one of them on this significant achievement.”
To further illustrate the 100% safety culture mindset, employees have been encouraged to share their safe practices in action via social media with the #MulzerSafetyMillion.
