MADISON, Ind. — Meese, a plastics rotomolder, shares that it recently won a safety award from the Ashtabula County Safety Council (ACSC), presented by Rep. David P. Joyce, 14th District, Ohio.
ACSC, one of 83 safety councils across the state of Ohio, is sponsored by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) Division of Safety & Hygiene, and provides health, safety and environmental awareness to Ashtabula County community businesses. The council addresses issues like occupational safety and health, workers’ compensation and risk management, and provides education and information to businesses.
To be eligible for the award, companies must present a semi-annual report to ACSC. This form is very similar to OSHA’s 300A.
“We are honored to receive this award from ACSC again,” says J.R. Ryan, president of Meese. “We work hard to maintain the highest safety standards in all of our plants. Our ongoing commitment to safety is very important to everyone at Meese.”
Earlier this year, Meese says it also received other safety awards, such as the Safety Recognition award from the Association of Rotational Molders (ARM), as well as one from TRSA, the association for linen, uniform and facility services, honoring its ergonomically focused products designed to eliminate a variety of common workplace injuries in laundries.
Meese says it continues to make safety improvements in the workplace through the purchase of ergonomic equipment, continual training programs and ongoing employee education.
