This tremendous milestone follows the first priority in its SURPASS operational system, which is Safety. The company says all of the credit in reaching this milestone goes to the hard work of its fully empowered safety committee and the employees in Pawcatuck.
Davis-Standard’s COO, Dan Guthrie says, “Empowering all employees to work safely, participate in training sessions, conduct area inspections, sharing global toolbox talk lessons learned and a continuous desire to put safety first are the major contributors leading to this milestone.”
Mike Newhall, VP of manufacturing, says, “Maintaining an injury-free workplace at all of our locations is a top priority. The safety manager in Pawcatuck, Ryan Steele, has invested a lot of time and energy into several initiatives that are making a significant difference.”
