Oldcastle Infrastructure Lexington marks one year without a lost‐time accident

Steaks and speeches were included on December 13, 2016 in celebrating one year without an OSHA lost time accident at Oldcastle Infrastructure’s production facility in Lexington, Ky.

November 6, 2016 marked the official day for achieving this milestone and to date, the Lexington facility has gone 423 days since their last recordable accident. “This last year, our team has truly concentrated on the daily fundamentals. Numerous improvements have been made, but none as important as safety. I am proud that our team made the decision to do all they could, each and every day, to see that each person made it home safely to their families,” said General Manager Jeff McKinley, addressing all the manufacturing employees gathered for the celebration event. “After our last accident, we decided as a group, to not concentrate on making it a month, or quarter, or year, we were going to stay focused on that day, then the next, and so on. Win today and the milestone celebrations will take care of themselves. That is what our team has done.”

In addition, Area Safety Manager Jennifer Dominick remarked, “The journey to becoming injury free for one year starts day by day. Each day without an injury or significant incident is a win for the entire team. Our accomplishments stem from all of the daily proactive measures we take to achieve higher heights within the 5 daily fundamentals. We are all extremely proud of each other and look forward to accomplishing another day, week, month, year, without an injury”.

Plant Manager Mark Pedron was exceptionally pleased with their accomplishment and added, “The team has made great strides in improving safety in our operation and this milestone reflects that commitment of improvement. I am proud of our team.”
