Your Path to Being One of America’s Safest Companies


11/29/18 12:00 pm to 11/29/18 1:00 pm CST

Event Description

Building an organization on a foundation of safety helps reassure your employees that you are committed to their health and well-being, and it helps to build trust within your organization. We believe that becoming one of the safest companies in America is a way to show your employees how much you value them.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss the principles and tactics that have contributed to Milliken’s journey to world-class safety processes over the course of the past 30 years.

Key takeaways:

  • How a foundation of safety can build trust and engagement within your organization and leads to complete ownership of the process.
  • Defining the roles and responsibilities of everyone in your organization, from top leadership to middle management and plant associates, helps everyone understand how to work together.
  • Ways to support the process through tools, education and recognition.

Phil’s career is steeped in 30 years’ worth of business leadership and manufacturing expertise. Phil has successfully worked with and led several business units within Milliken & Co. to profitable growth and financial sustainability. Before his business leadership roles, Phil led the implementation of Milliken Performance System for the Performance Products Division and served as director of cost improvement, where he was responsible for strategic cost reduction efforts.
