Hamilton Kent Recognized for Safety

Published:

HK Marketing/Territory Manager

We were pleased to learn recently that Hamilton Kent has been awarded the Highly Protected Risk (HPR) rating from our property insurer, FM Global. The HPR is given to organizations for their ongoing commitment to safety and prevention of property loss.

The award was presented in separate ceremonies at our manufacturing plants in Toronto and Winchester, Tenn.

FM Global engineering staff visits our locations regularly to evaluate hazards and recommend improvements to our property and work practices. We always take their recommendations seriously in order to reduce physical and financial risks, as well as ensure uninterrupted service for our customers.

We’re not sharing this news to toot our own horn, though. Rather, we want our customers to see we are creating a safer place for our employees to work, and we are taking all the steps necessary to provide a steady supply of our products for the long term.

We want to acknowledge the outstanding effort and support provided by the following people, without whom this achievement would not have been possible:

  • The direction from our Plant Manager Michael Antras (Winchester) and then-Plant Manager Patrick van den Berg (Toronto)
  • The expertise of our Maintenance Supervisors, Lloyd Green (Toronto) and Lloyd Rogers (Winchester), and our former EHS Coordinator, Alexis Weir
  • The exceptional engineering support from our Manager Safety and Environment Technical Services, Farid Danial

Thank you all for your commitment and achievements.
