Excel Celebrates Safest Year in Company History!

Excel recently celebrated 2015 as the safest year in Excel company history. Director of Human Resources Steve Stewart says “Safety comes down to the people. We can have all the programs and policies that can possibly be developed, but it is up to people to decide to work safely.” We are serious about safety and are committed to building a culture of safety.

The Maintenance department made over 300 safety improvements in 2015. Jim Green, Maintenance Technician, focuses the majority of his time implementing these improvements.

Excel’s commitment to creating a safe work environment has become a passion throughout Excel and resulted in our incredibly low incident rate of 1.85 for 2015. The OSHA Incidence Rate is a metric used to compare our company’s safety performance with other manufacturers. It also can be used to compare against state and national averages. It factors the total number of injuries or illnesses with the number of hours worked by all employees. Excel’s rate has been in steady decline over the last decade.

Our safety program engages team members company-wide. The ultimate goal is creating a work environment that contributes to an injury-free, high quality of life. Our day-to-day work involves handling molten metal and large components using powerful equipment. Considering the type of work we perform, and the pace of our growth this decade, our world-class safety record is something we have become proud of, and plan to continue into the future.
