Owens Corning recently announced it has received the 2014 Green Cross for Safety medal, reportedly the highest honor of the National Safety Council.

“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.
