Safety Emphasis Pays Off

Chatham’s Greenfield Specialty Alcohols is planning a big celebration after hitting a million consecutive hours worked without a lost time accident.

Plant manager Angelo Ligori says with 70 employees it has taken almost six years to get to that level and it is a big accomplishment.

“We have a hundred trucks a day coming and going, lab technicians working with glassware for tests, process operators taking samples climbing those big tall columns,” he says. “Our plant has a lot of activity and a lot of exposure for everyone who works here and we are just delighted to send everyone home safe and sound.”

Ligori says workers at the plant are being invited to suggest ways of celebrating the milestone.
