Category: Latest news, Date: 18 Dec 2016

Due to a strong commitment to safety without compromising priorities and values, two Aliaxis manufacturing sites from IPEX celebrated last year 16 years without lost time accident.

The IPEX plant in Bermondsey is an injection molding plant with 41 machines running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The plant employs more than 180 employees throughout the year. Bermondsey celebrated 16 years of no lost time accidents, which is equivalent to approximately 3 million total man hours worked. These results are a direct reflection of balancing safety and production, and prove that it is possible to work both safely and efficiently.

Rod Huels, the plant manager, said about this achievement: “These 16 years without any lost time accident reflect the huge commitment of all our employees at all levels of the company. Thank you to everyone for putting in the time, effort, and care that makes safety such a success.”

The second IPEX plant to celebrate its 16 years without lost time accident is Clarkson. Clarkson is an extrusion plant with 9 machines running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The plant employs more than 55 employees. With over 1,490,300 hours worked, plant manager Chris Ciszek congratulated all of the employees on their great achievement: “We share a strong Health & Safety culture and this 16-year milestone is a reflection of our colleagues being responsible, working safely, looking out for one another and focusing on our main safety goal, which is zero work-related injury and/or illness.”
