Press release from: Rigid Global Buildings

Houston, TX – Rigid Global Buildings Systems, manufacturer of steel buildings, recently celebrated 365 days injury-free. According to the April 2011 Labor Defense Project Report, which was written in collaboration with the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement at the University of Texas at Austin, “Texas is the most deadly place to work in construction, with a worker dying every 2.5 days and nearly 16,900 accidents annually.”

“Once again it’s confirmed – hard work pays off. Here at Rigid Global we all work very hard to maintain our plant accident-free.” Steve Olson, VP of Sales/Marketing for Rigid proudly stated. “Last year we aimed for a 100 percent injury-free workplace and we achieved that goal”.

Rigid Global has implemented a Safety Awareness Poster Contest, which they believe is a major contributing factor to achieving their accident-free goal. The contest is composed of three categories and Rigid’s employees and their families are encouraged to participate. First, Second and Third Place prizes of $50, $25 and $10, respectively, are awarded and the winning posters are laminated, framed and hung at various locations throughout Rigid’s steel buildings plants.

“We strongly believe that by involving not only our employees but, also their family members to participate in this contest, we get everyone focusing on keeping safety in the workplace as a main objective – and, it’s obviously working out”, added Olson.
