Roeslein & Associates is proud to announce that as a company, it has passed one million hours worked without a lost time incident (LTI). This accomplishment is the result of the combined efforts of all Roeslein employees. Roeslein’s commitment to continuous improvement in safety and productivity is a key element to its success.
Other safety milestones Roeslein has recently hit include:
• Reaching 642 days without a LTI at its fabrication facility in Red Bud, IL
• Reaching 308 days without a recordable injury at its fabrication facility in Red Bud, IL
• Decreasing recordable injuries company-wide by 80% in 2017
Roeslein President, Dave May, commented “We hold safety as a core value and believe that it is more than just a set of rules. With this milestone achievement, we have confirmed our commitment to safety, as well as pushed the boundaries of technology and engineering in our industry. We accomplished this while growing internally at a tremendous rate. The fact that we have been able to stick to our core values of safety, quality, and innovation reveals a great deal about our dedication to our company culture.”
Over the last five years, Roeslein has grown its EHS department and implemented various initiatives to manage and improve the safety of its employees and visitors. Some of these initiatives include: additional training, daily toolbox talks and stretching, weekly safety meetings, and First Aid and CPR certification courses.
As a result, Roeslein and its employees have received recognitions honoring their safety success. This year alone, Roeslein was awarded the SIOSH Governor’s Award for Contributions in Safety and Health; Ryan Kirkpatrick, EHS Manager at Roeslein, was recognized by Vector Solutions for his outstanding achievements in the area of safety; and Kirkpatrick sat on the Innovations Council at the Grainger Show in March where he and other special guests shared insights on strategy and innovation initiatives.
“Roeslein’s accomplishments and milestones have not only made me proud, but everyone in the organization, from the top down,” said Kirkpatrick. “When you have a strong EHS management system, a comprehensive wellness program, and have the support of the whole organization, it makes a world of difference; we can see this as our employee and daily processes become more and more safe.”
