Safety – Top 10 Tips

Focus on Prevention to Maintain a Safe Work Environment

Safety is the most critical consideration in refractory installation and construction. Therefore, safety is our number one objective at Plibrico.

Strong evidence shows that good worker health and safety boosts business performance. A study conducted by the National Safety Council confirms that safe working environments can create other benefits related to work quality, which may impact customer satisfaction. The results of the study demonstrate that customer satisfaction and a company’s safety environment, including injury rates, were “significantly correlated.”

Workplace safety is not simply an issue of doing the right thing or avoiding lost-time and injury costs. There are positive business outcomes to be gained in the form of improved customer satisfaction.

Because of our commitment to safety, Plibrico invests in a full-time, on-staff National Safety Manager. Our refractory Safety Manager is knowledgeable on the most current safety regulations as they relate to refractory installation and construction. We are sharing free knowledge from our Safety Manager in a variety of safety topics that we hope you’ll find very informative and useful.
