Fisher-Barton South Carolina recently celebrated one million hours worked without a lost-time accident. Fisher-Barton’s current string of safety began in December 2005.
“We attribute this record to employee teamwork and the desire to do the right thing to help control and eliminate hazards identified in the workplace,” stated Greg Andress, president of Fisher-Barton South Carolina. “Celebrations are nice, but more importantly, we have the satisfaction of knowing that each one of our employees are able to return home safely every day.”
Employees celebrated the safety milestone on October 4 with a catered lunch. To further recognize this exceptional achievement, employees also received new lunch coolers, hats, backpacks, water bottles, T-shirts and a commemorative “Toledo Torch,” one of the items manufactured at the Fountain Inn facility. Eager to attain even greater safety longevity, Fisher-Barton South Carolina employees take pride in keeping their work environment safe and don’t hesitate to educate fellow colleagues if a safety concern is observed.
“As a Fisher-Barton employee, I am encouraged by the way the company recognizes my suggestions, keeping it a safe place to work,” said Pierre Lee, a Lead Operator in the assembly area.
