Rockline Industries’ Springdale, Arkansas campus has been awarded by the Arkansas Department of Labour for exceptional safety. Rockline Industries – Northwest Arkansas (NWA) has achieved 11 million safe work hours without a lost time accident (LTA). This milestone has been achieved by only a handful of companies. The Safe Work Programme began in 1976.

“Our associates go that extra mile every day to prevent safety incidents. They look out for themselves and their fellow associates, in order to keep their department and our company on track to meet our safety goal,” says Mark Fougerousse, environmental health and safety manager of Rockline NWA. “Their commitment to workplace safety is the reason we have been able to reach this milestone and we truly appreciate the dedication of every individual to make our work environment as safe as possible.”

Rockline associates are trained to help prevent possible safety risks by continuously being on the lookout for potential safety hazards no matter how small. When such risks are observed, the associates report them to appropriate personnel who can get the issue corrected.

“We have an incredible group of dedicated employees who believe that reaching the goal of zero injuries is possible. Our employees are genuinely concerned for the safety and well being of each other,” said Joel Slank, general manager of the Springdale facility. “Receiving this safety award is very nice, but what is most satisfying is the knowledge that our employees strive to ensure that our company is a safe place to work.”

The Safe Work Programme began in 1976 and is part of The Arkansas Department of Labour’s Occupational Safety and Health Division educational effort to encourage workplace safety by honouring companies whose employees have accumulated a significant number of work hours without a lost day away from work due to a work-related injury or illness.
