H.C. Starck Tungsten Powders achieves 150,000 hours with zero lost-time injuries at the Sarnia site in Canada
The 100-year-old H.C. Starck, one of Masan High-Tech Materials’ member firms, has recently announced its Sarnia site in Canada achieved this milestone during the period (September 2019 - March 2021) through a focused effort on preventing, reducing, and eliminating work-related hazards and unsafe behaviors before they occur.
The local Labour Union’s commitment to Health and Safety at the site and their continued engagement with management to enhance the workplace's safety were vital in achieving this goal. As a result, employees have demonstrated a superior level of safety conscious behavior by reaching this milestone, and it proves that all employees are committed to one another’s safety.
