Daniel Defense Goes Two Years Without Safety Incident

    So, this is not a release about some sexy new product.  It is a nod to a company that has done a good job of maintaining a safe workplace for their employees.

    Daniel Defense, engineering and manufacturing the world’s finest firearms, precision rail systems and accessories, today announced it had reached a safety milestone at its Black Creek, Georgia, manufacturing facility.

    This anniversary marks 500,000 hours and two years without an OSHA Recordable or lost-time injury. “We are extremely proud of this achievement, which continues to be made possible through the strong advocacy of our exceptional workforce and a comprehensive approach to safety awareness, training, and continuous improvement,” said Sean Polwort, Director of Training and Safety.

    Safety is a core value for Daniel Defense and an integral part of operations. Each employee understands a robust health and safety culture is fundamental to company growth and success. Attaining this significant milestone was accomplished through active feedback and participation in various environmental, health and safety training programs.

    500,000 hours is a pretty decent chunk (I think that equates to around 120 employees?) of time to go without a reportable injury.  I’m not sure of their history prior to this milestone, but kudos to them!

Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he teaches wilderness medicine and runs an on-demand medical staffing business. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.
