The National Safety Council (NSC) recognized O’Neal Manufacturing Services (OMS) in Cedar Falls, Iowa for completing 1 million consecutive work hours without an occupational injury or illness resulting in days away from work.
“I am extremely proud of our employees and their commitment to working safely,” remarked James Mattson, General Manager for O’Neal Manufacturing Services in Cedar Falls. “We pride ourselves on looking out for each other, investing in our safety processes, and finding ways to continually improve our safety culture. The NSC award validates the priority that OMS places on workplace safety. We are now focused on getting to 2 million hours without a lost time injury.”
In addition to this notable safety achievement, the NSC awarded OMS Cedar Falls with an Occupational Excellence Achievement Award. This award recognized the Cedar Falls team for achieving injury and illness records better than 50% of the Bureau of Labor Statistics for their NAICS code.
Shannon Johnson, Safety Specialist for OMS Cedar Falls shared a popular quote that exemplifies the team’s dedication to workplace safety. “Safety is not a device; it is a state of mind.”
For more than 100 years, the National Safety Council has been a leader in workplace safety. A nonprofit safety advocate, the NSC Council believes that employers who show they care about the safety of their employees see improved morale, increased productivity, lower costs, and fewer injuries.
