Indiana Furniture’s Plywood Facility Recognized for Ongoing Workplace Safety
In living up to one of its core values, Create a Safe and Healthy Work Environment, Indiana Furniture has once again achieved Indiana Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (INSHARP) certification for its Plywood manufacturing facility, located in Jasper, Indiana. Less than 45 Indiana businesses have achieved INSHARP certification and they are recognized as workplace safety and health leaders.
“This is an incredible honor and a reflection of the hard work of each and every one of our employees,” stated Greg Hildenbrand, Safety and Environmental Engineer for Indiana Furniture. “We’ve created a mindset within our facilities to put safety first. It’s a part of everything we do. Receiving INSHARP recertification is a significant achievement and a testament to the focus and dedication of our entire company.”
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.
