Rockline Industries’ Arkansas Plant Receives State Safety Award

September 24, 2013

Rockline Industries’ Springdale, Ark. manufacturing facility was recently presented with an award from Arkansas’ Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Division for achieving three million safe working hours.

The award recognizes companies whose employees have accumulated three million work hours without a lost day away from work due to a work related injury or illness. Rockline is the only company in the state to reach three million safe work hours in 2013.

Contributing to Rockline’s success is the company’s proactive behavioral-based safety program, which trains employees to observe work tasks and provide immediate safety feedback to those involved. It also trains production team members to serve as safety coordinators who help improve training and communication at a smaller, teachable team level.

“The health and safety of our employees is a top priority for Rockline Industries,” said Ella Shackelford, a packaging operator at Rockline, and a member of the Safety Coordinator Group. “As a team, we have worked incredibly hard to reach the three-million safe work hours mark, and we owe our success to the employees who put a strong emphasis on both individual and team safety.”

The award was presented to Rockline on Sept. 4 by Ricky Belk, the director of labor for Arkansas’ Department of Labor, David Schneider, legal advisor for the Arkansas Workers’ Compensation Commission, and Ronnie Anderson, a congressional staffer with Sen. Mark Pryor’s office.

Rockline Industries is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of coffee filters and wet wipes.
