|One Year Without An Accident|
Safety in the workplace is one of the key issues every company addresses each and every day and many plan and practice to try and achieve what Metro Door in Lewisburg achieved in 2012-2013.
Executives of Metro Door and its parent company, Cintas Corporation, gathered together last week the company's Safety Committee to congratulate the team on its leadership in making Metro Door a safer place to work.
The Safety Committee of Metro Door joined Cintas in implementing a safety program that included over 285 hours of training and an investment of $250,000 in new equipment. The result was a 75% reduction in the Metro Door's injury rate over the past two years and the company going one full year without a lost-time accident at the Lewisburg facility.
The accomplishment garnered Metro Door and its Safety Committee an "Occupational Safety Achievment-Commissioners Award" from the State of Tennessee Department of Labor. The award recognized Metro Door for its full year without a lost-time accident, a workplace injury rate being below the industry average, the developement of a written safety and health program that created an environment free of safety and health violations, on-site safety compliance training, employee engagement programs and management safety leadership training.
To show their appreciation, Metro Door and Cintas provided a special luncheon for its safety Committee along with Certificates of Leadership and Certificates of Appreciation for every employee at Metro Door.
Lewisburg Mayor Barabra Woods attended the clelebration to show her appreciation to the team at Metro Door for tackling one of the most important issues of the recent era.
