Safety Doesn’t Happen by Accident
September 20, 2011
It’s impressive when any business operates one million hours with no lost–time accidents, but four million is outstanding by any standard! PCA’s Waco, Texas, plant reached that milestone in August 2011.
Our Waco plant employs 300 people. Their collective achievement of four million man–hours without a lost–time accident took 5½ years — a remarkable journey. This safety achievement is celebrated at PCA as it is an incredible milestone, setting a new record for not only the Waco plant, but the company as well.
Safety, quality and productivity go hand–in–hand. PCA has established a safety culture to meet and exceed customer expectations. By creating and maintainig a safe workplace, PCA can stay focused on consistently taking care of customers and profitably growing our business.
Also engrained into our culture is a focus on what employees can do at work, both individually and as a team, to ensure they return home safely to their families. Active safety committees, combined with a strong sense of family, form the foundation of PCA’s safety culture. Employees’ commitment to each other and their focus on safety keep them safe and out of harm’s way.
Safety doesn’t happen by accident. It takes hard work, dedication and responsibility from every employee to create and maintain a safe work environment.
