By outperforming its peers, KANE has demonstrated that workplace safety is a priority.”
According to Nancy Cruger, KANE’s Director of Continuous Improvement, maintaining a safe work environment for associates and customers is part of KANE’s culture. “We have a rigorous process for incident review, root cause analysis and prevention planning, and it’s paying off,” she says. “The 3PL industry average for OSHA reportable incident rate is 5.8 per year per 100 associates.
