[Cohoes, NY – September 13, 2012] Mohawk is pleased to announce that its employees have once again reached significant safety milestones.
As of Thursday, August 30, 2012, Mohawk’s Saybrook, Ohio, converting center and warehouse operation has achieved over eight years without a lost time injury. This means that employees at this facility have not had an injury that resulted in days away from work since August of 2004.
“Mohawk’s Saybrook facility also received two awards at the Pulp and Paper Safety Association’s (PPSA) Annual Awards Banquet this past June,” according to Ed Corlew, Manager of Health, Safety and Security. “The first, ‘NO OSHA Recordables,’ was for completing a full calendar year without experiencing an OSHA Recordable Injury and the second, ‘Best One Year Safety Record,’ for having the best record within the paper converting group. Now they’ve achieved another significant accomplishment.”
“Saybrook is an OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Site at the Star Level. We are extremely proud that our employees’ diligent efforts toward working safely and maintaining a safe working environment are yielding such positive results,” says Jason Meunier, Manager of the Saybrook facility.
