DuPont Company presented Phillips Industrial Services Corp. with the Top Gun Safety Performance Award in recognition of Phillips Industrial’s safety record at DuPont’s Cooper River Kevlar® site in South Carolina.
Phillips Industrial has been active in surface-preparation and painting activities at the new plant site for newly two years, said Maureen Troescher, Phillips Industrial’s environmental, health & safety manager. The Phillips crew, led by Supervisor Roman Monne’, has applied coatings to roofs, structural steel, floors, and walls. Construction at the site is ongoing.
Criteria for the safety award include injury performance; audit results; safety attitude; response to safety concerns; safety plans; safety improvement; and overall demonstrated safety leadership and performance.
Troescher said Monne’ and his crew have demonstrated “excellence with workmanship and teamwork while being safe and environmentally conscious. This crew had to work in 100-plus degree heat, climb stairs, and work on roofs with the proper training, supervision, and teamwork required to prevent and recognize heat stress.
“We are very honored to be a part of this project and are extremely proud of our supervisor and his crew,” she said.
