A1825 Banner

On November 5, 2019, Accuform reached a significant milestone, 1825 days without a lost-time accident. 

If you drove by Accuform on Monday, November 11, 2019, you’d notice a parade of banners with the message ‘Safe Days Worked: 1825’ blowing in the wind and the proud, smiling faces of employees partying in the front yard. This epic celebration was to recognize a rare accomplishment in the manufacturing industry, five years without a lost-time accident.

As a company manufacturing facility safety identification products, this accomplishment means the Accuform team went above and beyond to create a culture committed to safety always. Through reinforcing a commitment to individual safety, health, and communication, Accuform is leading the facility safety identification industry by demonstrating outstanding safety practices.

“This is a really awesome achievement that deserves to be celebrated. It’s an all-employee accomplishment, and everyone here is part of this milestone,” said Safety Director Mike Giovinazzi.

Mike knew accomplishing 1825 safe days was a reachable goal when he set forth to make it his mission over a year and a half ago. 

“As a company manufacturing facility safety identification products, this accomplishment means the Accuform team went above and beyond to create a culture committed to safety always. This is an outstanding achievement. Way to go, team!” said Rob Ogilbee, President of Accuform.

The average lost-time in the United States is 99 million days per year, reaching five years without a lost-time accident is a giant leap for any company. Attaining 1825 safe working days didn’t happen by accident; they happened through a dedicated cultural shift, focus, and desire to work safely every day.
