SUNMAN, IN (PRWEB) April 24, 2017
Deufol North America, the Sunman, Indiana-based global packaging, logistics, and supply chain firm, recently received four prestigious Occupational Awards from the National Safety Council, which promotes and advocates for enhanced safety protections in the workplace.
Deufol received the following awards:
The Milestone Award, which recognizes companies that have completed a period of at least 30 days without incurring an illness or injury that resulted in days from work.
The 2017 Significant Improvement Award, which recognizes companies that have a minimum of 20 percent reduction of injuries and illnesses that involved days away from work.
The Perfect Record Award, which recognizes companies that have completed a period of at least 12 consecutive months without incurring an injury or illness that resulted in days away from work.
The Operational Excellence achievement award, for companies with equal to or less than 50 percent of the BLS ratings for their 6 digit NAICS code.
Deufol’s safety record is a reflection of the entire team’s attitude toward workplace safety, according to Deufol North America Human Resources, Lisa Nichols. Deufol’s leadership team developed a health and safety constitution that formally established the facility’s commitment to workplace safety.
The leadership team also worked with the entire facility team to create a culture of active participation in safety and protection. All team members are responsible for a commitment to safety and any team member can propose ideas or suggestions that could enhance safety. Additionally, Safety Teams on all three shifts provide consistent leadership and support in safety efforts.
Deufol also implemented other strategies aimed at improving safety and protecting worker health. One was the Hearts and Minds calendars competition, which was created by employees and their loved ones to boost safety and health awareness among the team. Another initiative was Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA), which was an audit of the facility to identify and eliminate potential safety hazards.
Deufol is proud that its commitment to safety has been recognized by The National Safety Council. However, Deufol is even more proud to offer a safe work environment for all of its team members.
