“I’m very proud of our team, they are very committed in making the right decisions to be safe every day, and our performance reflects it,” said John Gorrell, General Manager of HEXPOL’s Burton campus. “Our commitment and primary goal is to promote and support a culture of health and safety for our associates’ benefit. They are our greatest asset by far. We are never satisfied and are always working to be better because of them.”

As one of two companies to receive a Silver Achievement Award, HEXPOL Compounding was recognized for having no OSHA recordable occupational injuries or illnesses involving lost workdays or restricted work activity during 2016.

The prestigious Safety Awards Program, sponsored by ARPM, is a way to recognize safety in the rubber industry and award facilities that have achieved a level of safety performance above the industry average. Awards were based on data reported on company’s annual OSHA 300 Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses. ARPM reported that they received three times as many applications this year compared to 2016.

The Environmental Health and Safety Summit is an annual event hosted by the Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers and is designed to share best leadership and safety practices with industry professionals hoping to achieve world-class safety within their companies.
