JASPER -- Indiana Furniture’s plywood manufacturing facility in Jasper has been certified in safety.
The company has announced it recently achieved Indiana Safe and Health Achievement Recognition Program certification.
Less than 45% of Hoosier businesses have achieved this certification.
Company officials say the certification shows they are living up to one of Indiana Furniture’s core values: creating a safe and healthy work environment.
“Our goal every day is to put safety first,” stated Greg Hildenbrand, Safety and Industrial Engineering Manager for Indiana Furniture. “Receiving this certification is a testament to the focus and dedication of our employees. Creating an ongoing safe and healthy mindset throughout the facility has required serious effort on everyone’s part and receiving INSHARP status is a significant achievement.”
To participate in INSHARP, a company must develop, implement, and maintain an exemplary worker safety and health management system and pass a comprehensive evaluation. In addition, the facility’s Days Away, Restricted, or Transferred (DART) and Total Recordable Case (TRC) rates must be below the national industry average.
