PIQUA, Ohio (Jan. 10, 2012)—Employees at the French Oil Mill Machinery Co. said they have finished 2011 without a lost time incident.
"Our employees are one of the most important assets we have and keeping them safe is a top priority at French," said Daniel P. French, chairman of the board and president. "Closing the year without a work related injury that caused an employee to miss a day on the job is an accomplishment that demonstrates employee diligence, safety leadership and our company's commitment to safety in all of our operations."
French's safety program places equal emphasis on their employees' and their customers' safety, the company said. In July 2011, French said it hired an Environmental Safety and Health professional to review existing safety programs and to initiate new training programs to reduce the potential for injuries.
