Total Safety Celebrates Leading Safety Milestone With Two Million Hours Without OHSA Recordable

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2013) - Total Safety's Fire Services has reached an industry leading safety milestone -- two million hours without an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable.

Celebrating two million non-recordable hours is a significant accomplishment. This milestone was achieved, in part, due to Total Safety's commitment to continuous improvement in its safety culture. Safety is Total's core value -- the safety of its employees and customers. An active participant of OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program, it currently has seven Star VPP sites.

"As a safety company, our focus is 100 percent on the Wellbeing of Workers Worldwide. Achieving two million hours without a recordable incident speaks volumes to the commitment of our employees. Our employees believe in safety and their hard work and dedication is represented in this milestone," said Steve Long, Director of HSEQ for Total Safety. "Our Fire Services team works in very unique and hazardous conditions. Our employees take pride in leading our safety culture and we are very proud of their accomplishment."

The Fire Services provide Total Safety clients with cost-effective and comprehensive risk mitigation strategies around complex worker and facility fire protection needs.

As defined by OSHA, a recordable case is an occupational work injury or illness requiring medical treatment beyond first aid, or an injury or illness that requires an employee to record days away from normal work.
