Indiana Furniture recognized for safety, health

From Local Sources

JASPER — Indiana Furniture has achieved Indiana Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program recertification for its Flat Line Assembly plant in Jasper.

Less than 45 Indiana businesses have achieved INSHARP certification and they are recognized as workplace safety and health leaders.

“Our goal every day is to put safety first,” stated Greg Hildenbrand, safety and industrial engineering manager for Indiana Furniture. “Receiving this recertification is a testament to the focus and dedication of our employees. Creating an ongoing safe and healthy mindset throughout the facility has required serious effort on everyone’s part and receiving INSHARP status again is a significant achievement.”

To participate in INSHARP, a company must develop, implement, and maintain an exemplary worker safety and health management system and pass a comprehensive evaluation. In addition, the facility’s Days Away, Restricted, or Transferred and Total Recordable Case rates must be below the national industry average.
