Celebrating a Year of Safety: PLI Asheville’s “Bee-ing Safe” Milestone

ASHEVILLE, NC – May 31st, 2024 - PLI is thrilled to announce that their Asheville location has achieved a remarkable milestone by maintaining a record of no recordable injuries for an ENTIRE year! From May 2023 to May 2024, the dedicated team has worked tirelessly to ensure that safety is #1 and always at the forefront of everything they do. This achievement is a monumental milestone in the manufacturing world and a testament to the commitment and vigilance of every PLI employee. 

Asheville safty celebration lunchTo honor this incredible accomplishment, PLI Asheville hosted a "Bee-ing Safe" celebration lunch, bringing together the hardworking, detail-orientated team for a day of appreciation and camaraderie.

As a token of gratitude, every PLI employee in the Asheville facility received a special "Bee-ing Safe" t-shirt. These shirts not only celebrate the collective success but also serve as a daily reminder of the importance of maintaining a safe working environment. A tasty BBQ luncheon was also served, providing mouth-watering food and refreshments, ensuring that the celebration was filled with great flavors and good vibes. It was a perfect way to relax, reflect on the achievements, and enjoy each other's company. 

An acknowledgement of gratitude from PLI Chairman and CEO, Mark McEachen 

“I am incredibly proud of the Asheville team members for their diligent pursuit in achieving this safety milestone. This triumph speaks volumes to the strong teamwork and collaboration they have built as this is not an easy task. At PLI, establishing a safe work environment is the utmost importance for our team members, and they have embodied that mindset and mission with precision and care by accomplishing this significant achievement.” 

For PLI, safety is not just a policy, rather it's a core value that drives its operations to keep its people safe. To keep their focus sharp, they invested in a counter prominently displayed that marks the number of days passed without an injury. This counter serves as a powerful visual reminder of the collective efforts and ongoing priority of safety.  

While this milestone is rewarded with great honor and acknowledgement, PLI is also looking to the future with renewed determination. Their goal is to build on this success, continuing to foster a culture of safety that ensures every employee feels secure and supported. With continuous training, vigilance, and a steadfast commitment to safety, PLI is confident that they can achieve even greater milestones in the years to come. 

This is a very difficult thing to achieve across all manufacturing facilities, and PLI is so proud to have overcome it and keep forging ahead.
