A Corporate Commitment to Safety

At Plastic Molding Technology Inc., safety is our top priority. We take our commitment seriously to keep our Team safe and healthy. Employee safety is entwined in the corporate culture of PMT—we’re committed to managing health, safety and environmental matters as an integral part of our business. Our policy is to achieve sustained, profitable growth by providing services that consistently satisfy the needs and expectations of our customers, while working in a manner that is beneficial to the environment—and safe for our staff.

Safety is our number-one priority, and advancing key safety initiatives helps us achieve an outlined strategy for employee safety in our facility. Driving our safety initiatives through training, awareness and teamwork continues to make us a better company.

 

PMT’s unyielding emphasis on safety, combined with rigorous safety trainings, achieves a culture of careful attention and productivity across all levels of our Team. Industry safety records in our plastic injection molding facility have continuously been above average. Our company has an effective employee safety program with proven results.

Our stringent approach to safety involves mandatory monthly safety trainings on both OSHA- and EPA-specified regulatory compliance topics and pertinent industry-specific matters. A representative list of current safety classes includes:

  • Machine Guarding
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Lock Out/Tag Out
  • Hazard Communications & Material Safety Data Sheets
  • Electrical Safety
  • Back Injury Prevention
  • Material Handling

We also hold industry-standard and custom-tailored trainings to ensure each Team member has a uniform understanding of strategic facility operations at PMT, including:

  • Paulson Trainings—in-plant interactive courses tailored to the plastics industry
  • SafeX—Health, Safety and Environmental Training Programs
  • In-house Forklift Operator license training program

PMT tracks each employee’s training progress in real-time on our fully integrated ERP platform from IQMS. We maintain a zero-tolerance Drug-Free Workplace. Our Safety Committee meets regularly to discuss safety concerns and proactively engage solutions.

The newly implemented employee wellness program at PMT adds another dimension to the safety protocols already in place across the facility. Aspects of the wellness program attend to the physical and mental circumstances that can interfere with attentiveness and productivity. The wellness program aims to amplify PMT’s safety efforts while making a positive impact on, and taking a unprecedented interest in, our staff’s well being.
