Douglasville, GA – Roll-up door manufacturer DBCI announced that on October 29 its Chandler, AZ manufacturing facility completed its fifth consecutive year without a single recordable injury. The milestone means all three DBCI manufacturing facilities have operated for over five years without an accident – a total of over 1.3 million man hours worked.
“I’m very proud of everyone here,” says Arizona plant manager Scott Henry, “Our employees have turned safety into a lifestyle, not just something we talk about.”
DBCI’s two other locations (Texas and Georgia) both surpassed the six year mark in 2014. Johnathan Crews, plant manager for the Texas facility which celebrated six years on October 21st, credits company culture for the program’s success. “Every one of our employees, across all levels of the organization, has made a total commitment to communication, training, and engagement,” he says.
The flagship facility in Douglasville, GA launched the safety initiative during the summer of 2008. Plant manager Michael Page reflected on what the accomplishment means for both DBCI and himself. “It’s amazing to see how far we have come in such a short period of time,” he says, “Safety has become a mindset that each individual carries with himself daily, both at work and at home. I am thankful to take part in it every day.”
