Springs Yarn Plant Earns Star For Safety Health

Springs Yarn PlantEarns Star For Safety, HealthSprings Industries Inc.s Hartwell Yarn Plant, Hartwell, Ga., has been named a Star site by the US Department of Labors Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) through OSHAs Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). As the highest safety designation in the VPP, Star status is achieved as a result of cooperation among plant management, labor and government to evaluate and improve safety in the facility. VPP sites, which total just over 1,000 out of 7 million US work sites in all, average about half as many injuries as the overall plant injury average.The Hartwell Yarn Plant, which spins yarn for towel products woven at Springs Hartwell Weave Plant, joins the Hartwell Finishing Plant and a facility in Montgomery, Pa., to become the third Springs facility to achieve Star status. Nearly 40 of the 80 associates at the plant, managed by David Tate, are involved in specific safety teams. December 2003
