GRAND ISLAND, NEBRASKA, U.S. —MFS/York/Stormor announced on Dec. 3 that it has achieved 1 million hours with a total of zero accidents requiring an employee to miss work as a result.
Since Nov. 12, 2012 through Nov. 27, 2015, 1 million hours were worked at the company’s manufacturing facilities.
“This is a tremendous achievement no matter how you look at it,” said MFS/York/Stormor President Dan Faltin. “It’s an accomplishment that every employee can take pride in, and further reinforces the emphasis that we and Global Industries places on safety awareness, training and making safety part of every employee’s personal culture.”
While the company places a high priority on keeping employees safe, it’s the employees themselves that have taken safety to heart, according to Safety Coordinator Jamie Lemburg.
“There’s no secret to it,” Lemburg said. “It’s a day-by-day goal, and is all part of having a team mentality and making sure everyone on the team knows what to do and what’s expected of them. We constantly recognize positive safety behavior, no matter how big or small, and continually reinforce safety at daily tool box training as well as monthly classroom training that all production employees attend.”
MFS/York/Stormor is not the first Global Industries’ division to reach this goal. Hutchinson-Mayrath, another Global company, achieved this same mark in November, 2013.
Global Industries, Inc., headquartered in Grand Island, Nebraska, U.S., operates four divisions that specialize in the design, manufacture and distribution of grain storage, handling and conditioning products, as well as other agricultural-related equipment and services worldwide.
