Cerro Wire LLC, a leading manufacturer of copper electrical building wire and cable, announces that its Ogden, Utah manufacturing plant has achieved a rate of zero OSHA-recordable incidents over the last two years and has only had 4 over the last five years. The plant’s innovation and attention to safety is one of the key reasons that the company’s True Sequential Footage™ product was named one of the nine Top Products of 2010 by Wire and Cable Technology International. 

The dramatic decrease in OSHA-recordable incidents, defined as any injury requiring more than first aid, came about due to a shift in mindset and corporate culture. Veteran employees worked cooperatively to help newer workers understand that most accidents are preventable. According to Kathy Johnson, Human Resources Manager, veteran employees devised methods to reduce accidents, provided training, and made safety a reality on the production line.

“I am extremely proud of the entire team at our Ogden manufacturing facility,” said Corey Schultz, Plant Manager. “A significant percentage of the workforce was new to the business, and the veterans looked out for their safety and helped them avoid dangerous or compromising situations where someone might be injured. Our employees have ownership and pride in what they do, which says a lot about the company and who works here.”
