The Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) presented six of its 20 safety awards this year to Michelin manufacturing plants in the U.S. Two Michelin plants, both located in Starr, S.C., received excellence awards. Improvement awards were presented to four Michelin facilities: one in Spartanburg, two in Lexington and one Covington, Ga.
RMA’s Safety and Health Improvement Program (SHIP) awards recognize member companies that achieve significant enhancements in worker health and safety. The SHIP awards encourage and reward a company’s demonstrated commitment to worker health and safety.
“The SHIP results are an important measurement for Michelin because our top priority every day is to provide the safest and healthiest work environment possible for our workers,” said Pete Selleck, Michelin North America’s chairman and president. “Ultimately, we depend on the hard work, vigilance and determination of our plant employees to maintain a culture of safety at every site.”
