ATEC Steel, LLC recently celebrated 36 months (421,200 + man-hours) of being injury free at its fabrication facility.
ATEC Steel is a Baxter Springs-headquartered manufacturer of API 650, 653, 620 and ASME pressure vessels, pressure piping and power boilers.
Announcing the news, it said: “Safety is our top priority at ATEC, not only because we care about our employees, but also because we understand that potential customers are looking for contractors who operate and make safety a top priority.”
To achieve the milestone it said it has taken the following three actions:
“1. We empower our employees to stop a job if they feel it is unsafe for any reason. No questions asked.
2. We promote a culture of safety by hiring safety professionals and bringing in experts to teach our employees about safe work practices; safety training is job essential here.
3. We involve employees in pre-job analysis to help determine how to do a job safely based on their past experiences.”
