"Our associates really get it and are fully on board with our culture of safety. Despite all the recent distractions, our associates continue to go the extra mile in their daily work to help prevent safety incidents and this award is a testament to their dedication to safety," says Mark Fougerousse, EHS manager of Rockline NWA.
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.
"Our team members do a great job of preventing incidents from occurring, if they see a potential risk, they speak up right away and it is addressed immediately," Fougerousse continue. "In the time since hitting the 11 million safe work hours milestone our location has installed three new manufacturing lines and hired approximately 100 new associates all while keeping safety strong. We truly appreciate everyone's dedication to being as safe as possible."
"We have an incredible group of dedicated employees who believe that zero injuries are possible, at work and home. We pay attention to little details and truly look out for each other," says Joel Slank, general manager of Rockline's Springdale facility. "Awards are terrific but what's more rewarding is the knowledge that our employees are acting safely and have a safe place to work."
