Indian Trail, NC (September 3, 2015) — On September 14, 2015, RSC Chemical Solutions, a division of Radiator Specialty Company®, will celebrate a safety milestone – two million man hours with no lost time injuries. Only 22 companies in North Carolina have achieved this accomplishment to date.
“I am very proud of this achievement and extend my congratulations to the Indian Trail team for reaching this milestone,” said Mike Guggenheimer, President and CEO. “Achieving two million man hours without a lost time injury is a result of our associates being dedicated to getting better each day and a culture of teamwork where we look out for each other’s safety and work together to find better solutions.”
The milestone is the direct result of the dedicated efforts by all associates and the leadership of the corporate Safety Committee, led by RSC Safety and Environmental Director, Stuart Kerhoff and comprised of hourly and salaried associates who meet monthly to identify, promote and implement practical solutions that focus on safety in the workplace. “This accomplishment was only made possible by our associates’ conscious efforts to work safely and believe in our safety program,” said Kerhoff.
Thanks to their efforts, RSC has been SHARP certified since 2010, joining the elite 145 out of 250,000 businesses in North Carolina that can claim the title.
“We believe and communicate the ‘buddy-system’; always looking out for one another. If we see a potential unsafe act or condition, we warn and help each other out. We are supported by owners, an executive team, and managers/supervisors that are committed to our safety,” said Brian Chapman, VP and General Manager.
In 2008, the company initiated a program with the acronym SPEQC to serve as a daily reminder of important aspects that keep the company successful in its efforts to remain without injury. The days include Safety Monday, Production Tuesday, Engineering Wednesday, Quality Thursday and Communication Friday. Thanks to their efforts, RSC has been SHARP certified since 2010, joining the elite 145 out of 250,000 businesses in North Carolina that can claim the title.
An upcoming company-wide celebration marking the achievement will include a luncheon and each associate will be given a commemorative RSC jacket.
