The ARPM safety awards recognize companies in the manufacturing industry that have achieved excellent safety techniques that go beyond adherence to regulations. They are based on OSHA 300’s log of work-related injuries and illness statistics and safety best practices.

Marsh Bellofram’s environmental, health, and safety manager, Jonathon Monfredi, said the culture of health, wellness, and protection starts with Marsh Bellofram’s safety committee. The committee begins with a broad, overarching view of operations, seeks to engineer away hazards, and then drills down to daily practices that, when given adjustment or focus, can improve safety.

“Each safety committee member is given a monthly assignment to conduct individual audits in their work area and help with monthly safety initiatives,” said Monfredi. “By conducting focus inspections in each department, we’re able to identify potential safety issues that we otherwise may not have. It has helped improve our overall safety culture.”

U.S.-based Marsh Bellofram is a global manufacturer with 13 divisions focused on high-performance OEM, industrial, and process control instrumentation as well as elastomers, including diaphragms and specialty silicones.
