GREENVILLE, N.C. — Chemical manufacturer UNX-Christeyns reports it was recognized by the industry for the third consecutive year on March 22 when President Rudi Moors accepted the 2023 SafeTRSA Safety Excellence Award.
TRSA presented the honor during its 13th annual Legislative Conference industry awards dinner held at the Westin City Center in Washington, D.C.
UNX-Christeyns won the award for completely revamping its liquid laundry chemical product labels. A new color-coded system provides care and safety information for each product grouping. Team members are also involved by training and assisting distributors and customers on the new labeling system.
“The UNX-Christeyns label improvement effort reflects the company’s embrace of safety as a true corporate value, a key characteristic of companies that win the SafeTRSA award,” says Ken Koepper, TRSA director of member and industry relations.
“Better labeling touches the bases that score laundry safety success; getting employees involved in recommending improvements, prompting top management to fund these, and devising new training and communication that ultimately culminates in better protection.”
“As one of our core values, we place safety among the highest priorities for customers, distributors and employees,” says Moors. “To achieve the best results, it requires us to place an emphasis on making chemicals as safe as possible.
“On behalf of the entire team at UNX-Christeyns, we are deeply grateful to receive this award.”
Also receiving the 2023 SafeTRSA Safety Excellence Award were ARCO/Murray, Balfurd Linen Service, Ecolab Textile Care, Linen King, Meese, Superior Health Systems and Virginia Textile Service.
UNX-Christeyns won the TRSA Above & Beyond Service award in 2022 for providing exemplary service to customers. It followed the 2021 TRSA Company Community Service award where the company was recognized for its involvement in local events.
Employees continue to volunteer their time and participate in various community fundraisers and projects. This includes cleaning all uniforms of players competing in the Little League Softball World Series, which returns to Greenville, North Carolina, in August for its third consecutive season.
