ProVia among a select group of manufactured stone veneer producers to achieve this distinction
SUGARCREEK, Ohio, June 1, 2020 - ProVia announces that it received the 2019 NCMA/ICPI Gold Safety Award for their track record in the production of manufactured stone veneer. The prestigious honor is bestowed annually upon plants that demonstrate a commitment to the well-being of their employees and their work environment. A select few manufactured stone producers received this distinction, which means ProVia is among an elite group of manufacturers demonstrating exceptional care for the safety of employees.
This annual award program is open to all production and manufacturing facilities of members of the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) and the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI). Participants were eligible for awards through their OSHA 300A logs or equivalent Canadian injury reports from January 1 to December 31, 2019. Gold awards are given based on two formulas, one for Incident Rate (IR) and Days Away for Restrictions and Transfer Rate (DART).
“We congratulate our employees at ProVia’s manufactured stone facility for their dedication and commitment to safety,” said ProVia President & CEO Brian Miller. “They’re achieving high levels of success in both the quality of our manufactured stone products and the processes we use to produce them.”
“We are proud of these award winners, members of both ICPI and NCMA, who consistently exemplify safe manufacturing processes,” said NCMA President Bob Thomas. “Practicing safe manufacturing processes are more than fundamental, they’re paramount. It’s encouraging to see this program effectively highlighting such commitment.”
