Merlin Industries Recognized for Excellence in Safety
Merlin Industries, a manufacturer of swimming pool safety covers, was recently recognized with a MEMIC Award for Excellence in Safety.
In 2023, only four MEMIC policyholders warranted that distinction, demonstrating best practices to identify and remove workplace hazards while building a culture of care and accountability throughout the operation.
Merlin Industries is being recognized for creating a formal safety committee, upgrading to dynamic workstations including sit-to-stand desks, implementing electrical system improvements and addressing hazards pertaining to activities at loading docks. Merlin Industries has also taken advantage of MEMIC’s various safety resource offerings including attendance at an OSHA 10 workshop and requesting customized e-Ergo analysis pertaining to its sewing tasks.
Founded in 1994, The MEMIC Award for Excellence in Safety is given annually to policyholders that integrate workforce safety into their culture to prevent injuries, increase labor productivity and improve work practices at all levels.
Award criteria include participation in safety workshops and on-site training, clear and consistent communication with employees about safety expectations and investments proven to reduce injuries. Strides often are made through mechanization, machine guarding, providing personal protective equipment and defensive driver training. Nominees from among more than 20,000 MEMIC policyholders are recommended by independent agents and MEMIC safety consultants, claim specialists and managers.
