The Huntsman Polyurethanes facility in Mississauga recently celebrated
its 42nd birthday - without a single
recordable or lost-time injury. Huntsman
associates and contractors have worked
safely at the site since its founding in
1974. The PEEL site currently holds one of
the highest safety records in Huntsman.
"The associates at PEEL have kept the
safety record intact by making safety
their No. 1 priority," said Ray Jackson,
Plant Operations Manager. "When you
truly have a good leadership team from
the top down sending the same message on safety, it gets the results that
we are all striving for," added Jackson.
"The PEEL site holds this record through
continued support from these groups all
cascading the same message."
The Mississauga site, which maintains a production capacity of 35 million
pounds, manufactures insulation products for appliances and construction.
