SPRINGDALE, Ark. – August 23, 2016 – The Arkansas Department of Labor has recognized Rockline Industries’ Springdale, Ark., manufacturing facility yet again with an award for its latest exceptional safety record — seven million safe work hours. Only 11 other companies have ever achieved this milestone since Arkansas began recognizing workplace safety in 1976.
The award from the department’s Occupational Safety and Health Division is part of Arkansas’ overall educational program to encourage workplace safety by honoring companies whose employees have accumulated a significant number of work hours without a lost day away from work due to a work-related injury or illness. By these standards, seven million safe work hours is a remarkable record.
“We’re incredibly proud to be recognized for this achievement and congratulate our hard-working associates who always make safety a top priority at Rockline,” said Randy Rudolph, president of Rockline Industries. “This milestone couldn’t have been reached without the dedication of our associates, who continue to work to improve all of our manufacturing processes and provide the safest work environment possible.”
Contributing to Rockline’s success is the company’s behavioral-based safety program, which trains employees to observe work tasks and to provide immediate safety feedback to those involved. It also trains production team members to serve as safety coordinators who help improve training and communication at a smaller, teachable team level.
