ARDMORE, Okla. — Between October 2016 and December 2018, Noble Research Institute went more than 1.7 million hours with no loss-time injuries (wherein employees are away from work due to injury).
Employers who reach 1 million or more hours of no loss-time injuries are recognized by the National Safety Council. To reach 1 million hours in an organization with 350 employees takes several years of consistent management.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration defines a safety culture as an environment in which employees have not only a right to a safe and healthful workplace but a responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others.
Noble has done the following to help integrate safety into its employee culture:
- Provided training and education
- Developed hazard recognition and reporting processes
- Effectively implemented its safety policy and procedures
- Gained employee commitment and integrity in achieving the goal
This milestone bested the previous organizational record of 1.2 million hours set from 2013 to 2016.
