Safety

Staying SHARP

Simply put, safety is a core value.

It is our policy to provide and maintain safe and healthful working conditions, promote safe behaviors, and comply with all relevant safety laws and ordinances. A good safety record is an absolute requirement for our company to be successful.

It is our duty to have every employee return home to his or her family sound and healthy every day. No company can prosper without adequately safeguarding its most valuable asset—its employees.

Safety is everyone’s responsibility and everyone must be involved. Each plant has an active employee-safety committee that is responsible for coordinating all aspects of the safety process, including, but not limited to, employee safety suggestions, plant inspections, root-cause evaluations, corrective actions, implementation, and monitoring.

Moreover, we strive to instill in our employees a philosophy that being safe extends beyond the workplace—that being mindful of safe practices is essential, whether it’s at work or at play, at home or on the go.

To guide us in our professional safety endeavors, we are a certified participant in OSHA’s Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP).

SHARP recognizes employers who operate exemplary safety and heath-management systems. All our facilities—MetalTech, NexTech, and GalvTech—recently renewed their SHARP status after undergoing a reevaluation process that takes place every two years. This recognition by OSHA demonstrates that we go above and beyond in our efforts to promote the health and safety of our employees.
