Rockline Industries recently reached two million safe work hours at its Springdale manufacturing plant.

The Arkansas Department of Labor this month awarded the company with a Two Million Safe Hours Safety Award to mark the milestone. Rockline has in place a proactive behavioral-based safety program as well as a safety committee made up of both plant and management associates.

"We're incredibly proud to have reached this two-million mark, and we owe the award to our valued associates who put a strong emphasis on both individual and team safety, on and off the job," Joel Slank, general manager for Rockline Industries, said in a statement. "We take a continuous improvement approach to all we do in the facility.  This is another great example of our associates' efforts."

Rockline is one of only two companies in the state to reach the milestone this year.

Founded in 1976 and based in Sheboygan, Wis., Rockline Industries is one of the world's largest manufacturers of coffee filters and wet wipes.
