PPG Industries’ (NYSE: PPG) coatings manufacturing facility in Bangplee was recently recognized with a Zero Accident Award by Thailand’s Department of Labor Protection and Welfare, Ministry of Labor.

The Zero Accident Award honors companies that demonstrate excellence in prevention of workplace accidents. It is a benchmark for environment, health and safety programs (EHS) in Thailand.

The plant received a bronze-level award from Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Labor Jirasuk Sugandhajati for achieving between 1 million and 2.99 million personnel hours worked from January 2012 through July 2014 with no occupational accidents causing workday loss.

“We are proud to be recognized for our commitment to safety within PPG Thailand,” said Kiat Wisanrakkit, plant manager, Bangplee. “We aim to engage all of our employees in creating a safe work environment, and we operate and invest in equipment to provide a high level of safety.”

The plant uses a “near-miss” accident reporting system, employs a management intervention program and recognizes employees for strong safety practices. Wisanrakkit said these practices help the plant run smoothly and promote a culture of safety there.
