Rockline Industries’ Springdale manufacturing facility has attained a rare distinction from the Arkansas Department of Labor.
It has won an award for an exceptional safety record that includes 7 million safe work hours. Only 11 other companies have ever hit that milestone since 1976 when the state began recognizing workplace safety.
The award from the department’s Occupational Safety and Health Division is part of Arkansas’ overall educational program to encourage workplace safety by honoring companies whose employees have accumulated a significant number of work hours without a lost day away from work due to a work-related injury or illness.
“We’re incredibly proud to be recognized for this achievement and congratulate our hard-working associates who always make safety a top priority at Rockline,” said Rockline President Randy Rudolph. “This milestone couldn’t have been reached without the dedication of our associates, who continue to work to improve all of our manufacturing processes and provide the safest work environment possible.”
Rockline Industries is headquartered in Wisconsin and manufactures coffee filters and consumer, health care, industrial and institutional wet wipes. It employs 2,000 people worldwide and, along with the Springdale facility, has manufacturing plants in Wisconsin, New Jersey, England, and South China.
