Owens Corning recently announced it has received the 2014 Green Cross for Safety medal, reportedly the highest honor of the National Safety Council. The annual award is given to an organization with outstanding safety performance and a commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities where its employees work and live.

Over the past 12 years, Owens Corning has eliminated nearly 95% of recordable injuries, as defined by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration. The company’s operations include 90 manufacturing plants.

“We are honored to be recognized with the Green Cross for Safety medal from the National Safety Council,” said Mike Thaman, chairman and CEO. “The journey to an injury-free workplace continues, but we take pride in what we’ve accomplished and this special recognition. Safety is a true indicator of not only manufacturing excellence, but also overall operating performance. Our success in keeping employees safe has set the bar for how we perform in the market and with our suppliers, customers and each other.”
