Quanex Building Products’ Cambridge, Ohio, facility recently achieved more than 1 million man-hours worked without a lost-time injury—a significant milestone that is a part of the company’s overall safety culture, according to the company.

“At Quanex, we’ve seen a reduction in accidents and injuries that can be attributed to a great safety culture that starts at the top with the CEO, COO and divisions presidents who are all committed to providing the safest workplace in our industry through continuous improvement,” says Richard Mack, director of environmental health and safety. “We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished at the Cambridge plant, and at every location where great strides toward safe operation are happening every day.”

In addition to the Cambridge facility’s 1-million-hour milestone, the total recordable incident rate and severity rate for Quanex have improved by 62% compared to 2012, as of June 30, 2019.

“Not only is having a great safety record important to Quanex, but it is also important to our customers from a sustainability perspective,” adds Mack. “Customers need suppliers that are dependable and that consistently have the resources available to service their needs.”
