A Decade of Safety Achievement: Ten Years Without Incidents

A Decade of Safety Achievement: Ten Years Without Incidents

Following a decade-long safety milestone, two safety professionals from one company share the strategies and cultural practices contributing to this achievement.

Given just how much can go wrong in the workplace, it’s vital for companies to not only institute policies and procedures to protect their workers but also recognize the wins that can help inspire change in other organizations looking to prioritize the safety of their own employees. To that end, Illinois-based Leeco Steel just marked ten years of accident-free operation at its Houston facility.

VP of Operations Chad Schuh and Director of Safety Ben Kincheloe join the OH&S SafetyPod to discuss the company's approach to safety culture, what strategies Leeco put in place to achieve a decade without incident at its Houston location and what other companies looking to emulate Leeco’s milestone can do to mitigate worker risk without sacrificing company-wide productivity.
