The Michelin Tweel plant in Greenville and US10 plant in Starr-Anderson won awards from the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) for excellence in worker health and safety.
Additionally, the US1 facility in Greenville won an award for significant improvement in worker health and safety.
Two categories of awards were presented to companies that demonstrate workplace safety improvements, which are measured by the incidence rate for lost workday cases. The excellence category is for facilities that achieve an incidence rate that is 75 percent better than the average achieved by plants that provide data to RMA.
The improvement award is for plants that achieve an incidence rate that is both 10 percent better than its rate in the previous year and the same or better than the RMA average incidence rate.
For 2015, four excellence awards and 16 improvement awards were presented at the RMA’s annual meeting.
