EHS Today names Scot Forge as one of America’s Safest Companies in 2014
Since 2002, EHS Today (Environment, Health, & Safety Today) has recognized America’s Safest Companies, honoring those whose focus is on developing and maintaining world-class safety cultures. Each year, companies from all types of industries submit applications for review and EHS selects 10-15 standouts to receive this prestigious award.
This year, we are proud to announce that Scot Forge Company has claimed one of the 2014 spots. Joining the ranks of other prominent companies such as Honeywell International, Caterpillar Inc., Lockheed Martin, ExxonMobile and Alcoa...
Scot Forge becomes the first ever forging company in the United States to receive this honor.
To be considered for the title of America's Safest Company, Scot Forge had to demonstrate “support from management and employee involvement, innovative solutions to safety challenges, injury and illness rates lower than the average for the manufacturing industry, comprehensive training programs, evidence that prevention of incidents is the cornerstone of the safety process, good communication about the value of safety, and a way to substantiate the benefits of the safety process”. (America’s Safest Companies, EHS Today)
While this award means a lot to the company, it’s just the beginning. Even though Scot Forge is doing very well by external measures, internally the employee-owners know they can do significantly better. The company’s culture of continuous improvement and commitment to safety means their ultimate goal is zero injuries… and they won’t be satisfied until that goal is sustained.
At Scot Forge, everyone is working towards a common goal - to go home at the end of each day without accidents or injuries. By fostering a low-risk work environment, employees stay productive and can focus on other things, like producing quality, precision forged parts. And by taking care of themselves, the employee-owners know they can continue to take better care of their customers.
