Two of Wolgast Corporation’s staff members achieved unprecedented safety awards for 20 years of personal safety at the company’s Employee Development Meeting focusing on safety on February 19th. Neither Mark Stavely nor Keith LaPratt has had a personal MIOSHA recordable injury or illness in the past 20 years. Stavely has been with the company for 31 years and LaPratt for 25 years. This achievement is based on the records Wolgast keeps for the Michigan Safety and Health Standards, which requires employers to maintain a log of work-related injuries and work-related illnesses that result in death, medical treatment beyond first aid, lost or restricted work days, and loss of consciousness.
