ERIE, Pennsylvania - Over 300 employees at the Eriez head office have worked more than two years without a lost time accident, surpassing the previous record by a year.

We revamped our new employee safety orientation, reiterated the goal of no accidents and hung a tracking sign where everyone could see our progress. We've increased safety training and have safety updates at the company meetings. We also incorporated safety into our health and wellness program.
