Spancrete Reaches Milestone Two-Year Zero Lost Time on Oct. 19, 2020
Spancrete, a leader in precast/prestressed concrete building solutions is proud to announce it recorded zero lost time incidents for the last two years across the entire organization, including its three production facilities, global equipment manufacturing and construction trucking and installation services group. This is the first time the company has accomplished this achievement in its 74 years of operation. It is a result of the daily dedication of employees to a culture of safety at all locations in Wisconsin, Illinois and Florida.
“Reaching a zero lost time record for one year was a real motivator for the team to aim for a second consecutive year,” said Alan Antoniewicz, president and COO, Spancrete. “This achievement is a result of our culture of safety – we put it at the forefront of all we do. From daily huddles and numerous safety programs, to the simple act of watching out for each other, I could not be prouder of our team.”
Throughout the company Spancrete has activated processes and systems that help keep employees safe in day-to-day operations and provide a framework from which employees can draw from in their daily activities.
The last year of zero loss time incidents is a result of the dedication of Spancrete’s employees and is well below the national average of 3.2 cases with days away and restricted case (1.6 for cases with days away only), as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Spancrete also tracks well below average for the Experience Modification Rate (EMR) of 1.0 with a score of .78.
“We always want to do everything we can to keep our employees safe, and that means involving them in the process so they return home in the same condition they left,” said Antoniewicz. “With everyone working together toward this common goal, we are stronger as a company.”
Spancrete employs almost 375 people with plants in Valders, Wis., Waukesha, Wis., Crystal Lake, Ill., and Sebring, Fla.
