A proud member of EMC and the Brantford Consortium
Stone Straw Limited has succeeded in making a radical change in it's safety culture. This is marked by completing 365 days without a lost time accident on February 14, 2013. Safety awareness has expanded to the point where 60% of reports for 2012 were non-incidents or hazard reports. That figure has increased to almost 90% for 2013 to date.
The current JHSC members are proactive and have individual assignments contributing to the overall results at Stone. In fact, for the first time in company history, the JHSC worker members had to compete for their positions through elections. Workplace inspections are the responsibility of the JHSC, and supervisors and management. This results in three separate health and safety inspections every month.
