HOUSTON (July 23, 2019) – Mobil Steel International, Inc. recorded more than three years working safely without suffering an OSHA recordable injury – a workplace injury or illness that would require medical attention.
Medical treatment which would create an OSHA recordable work injury can be as simple as prescription medicine. All OSHA recordable injuries must be recorded in an official Occupational Safety and Health Administration log and reported to the safety and health administration.
“Our employees have created a safety culture that provides a safe and healthy workplace by improving safety performance,” said Leonard A. Bedell, President and CEO of Mobil Steel. “I am proud that our employees reached this significant OSHA recordable milestone. Yet, I am most pleased that our employees have developed a culture of safety performance that has resulted in our employees working more than three consecutive years without being injured or becoming ill from a workplace accident.”
Throughout the three-year OSHA recordable safety streak Mobil Steel management rewarded employees quarterly and annually for safety performance.
Later this month, Mobil Steel is expected to be recognized for its fourth consecutive year of improvement in the Associated Builders and Contractors National Safety Training and Evaluation Process.
