Operating injection molding machines that are capable of applying pressure between 600 and 800 tons, at 350 degrees F is a job with a lot of risks—if you aren’t taking the correct precautions.

That’s why receiving the Silver Achievement Safety Award from the Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers (ARPM) is a pretty big deal for Hamilton Kent.

We are proud to announce that the ARPM recognized our total of zero OSHA recordable occupational injuries or illnesses requiring any lost work days, or restricted work activity in all of 2015 at our Tennessee plant.

“Our safety record is a direct reflection of the tremendous support we receive from our corporate and home offices,” said Michael Antras, plant manager at Hamilton Kent’s Tennessee facility.

“It could not have happened without the honest day-to-day commitment of our employees to work safely and to look out for one another.”
