 “I am very proud of the teamwork that all of our associates display each day when it comes to the safety of themselves and others.

“We’re incredibly proud of our associates. Working together, over an extended period of time, we have created and supported a culture that puts people and product safety before any other manufacturing metrics. We use a tool called PBL Scorecard to bring clarity to our employees of how key strategies, like Safety, are supported and accountable to very specific and achievable metric targets. Our associates’ ability to see and support this each and every day made this milestone possible,” said Joel Slank, general manager of the Rockline Industries Springdale location.  Associates are constantly encouraged to look for and provide documented opportunities to improve their work areas and practices to make their work environment even safer.
