The weather isn’t the only thing heating up this time of year – it’s award season for several of our facilities across the country, and we’re proud to say we’ve racked up some exciting wins!
In Caldwell, Ohio, our team attended the Mid-Ohio Valley Safety Council Awards Luncheon. During the luncheon, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Division of Safety and Hygiene recognized International Converter for an exceptional safety record for 2017. The team received several outstanding awards:
- Group Award – lowest incident rate in each group;
- 100% Award – zero injuries or illnesses resulting in a day or more away from work in the previous calendar year;
- Special Award – at least 500,000 hours and at least six months without an injury resulting in a day or more away from work.
For our team, working 1,472,788 hours without a Loss Time Incident is a major accomplishment, and these awards are a testament to their hard work and safety precautions.
In the Lone Star State, our Roanoke, Texas, team was awarded the Pinnacle award in the janitorial section at this year’s United Group meeting.
Elsewhere, our Heritage Unit won the prestigious Golden Eagle award at NETWORK. NETWORK, which is a distribution solution for supply chain management professionals handling multi-site programs, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The Golden Eagle is awarded to the suppliers who have won the most Supplier of the Year awards. Our team is incredibly grateful for this honor and is excited to continue our work with NETWORK in the future.
And finally, our Vancouver team won both the Plant of the Year and the Operational Excellence awards at this year’s Operations meetings. This is a great accomplishment for our team, and we couldn’t be happier with all of their efforts this year!
