On August 16, 2013, RSC Chemical Solutions, a division of Radiator Specialty Company, celebrated a safety milestone of One Million Man Hours With No Lost-Time Injuries. Only 28 companies (this includes RSC) in North Carolina have achieved this level of accomplishment to date.

This is the direct result of the dedicated efforts by all associates and the leadership of the corporate Safety Committee which is lead by Stuart Kerkhoff, Safety and Environmental Director of RSC.  The Safety Committee is comprised of hourly and salaried associates who meet monthly to identify, promote and implement practical solutions that focus on safety in the workplace.  These efforts are bolstered by monthly departmental safety meetings involving all RSC associates and a separate safety team made up of only volunteer hourly associates that rotate during the year.

“This is truly a remarkable achievement and only made possible through the conscious effort of each associate supporting and practicing a strong safety culture” Kerkhoff said.

RSC is no stranger to safety achievements. On October 7, 2010, RSC was certified as a Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) recipient that recognizes companies for their commitment to and positive record regarding the safety and health of their employees. “With more than 200,000 eligible companies in North Carolina, to date, only 132 companies are SHARP certified.   Our success in reaching an industry-leading safety milestone is credited to the dedication of each associate here” said John Huber, CEO.

“I know we all share in this outstanding accomplishment, which has only been made possible by the efforts of all our associates.  The celebration we all look forward to on Thursday is both to recognize this great achievement and to look forward to an even safer future for us all” said Brian Chapman, VP and General Manager.

A luncheon and celebration is planned for Thursday, September 19, where each associate will be given a commemorative RSC Shirt sporting a new safety slogan.  Over 130 slogans celebrating this achievement were submitted by RSC Associates, with the winning slogan that reads: Remain Safety Conscious (or RSC).  The winner of the slogan contest was Program Manager of the IT department, Paul Collins.
