FOND DU LAC, Wis. (April 20, 2010) - Employees at Mercury Marine's Plants 3, 4 and 36 in Fond du Lac recently recorded one million consecutive work hours worked without a lost-time injury. 
The company celebrated the safety milestones earlier this month during recognition luncheons at the respective plants. 

Plant 3, whose safety record dates back to May 20, 2008, is Mercury's global distribution and customer service center. Plant 4 produces gears and shafts for the company's outboard engines; its safety record dates back to June 6, 2007. Plant 36, whose safety record dates back to Oct. 12, 2006, is Mercury's high-performance manufacturing facility. 

Mercury Environmental Health and Safety Director Tom Baumgartner said each plant's accomplishment is testament to the company's dedication to employee safety. 

"These milestones reflect the diligent efforts of Mercury employees to maintain safety as one of our core values," he said. "Their leadership and commitment have made significant progress toward building awareness and achieving sustainable safety practices in their workplace." 
He added that with more than 500 employees between the three plants, preserving a safe workplace is an ongoing challenge. 

"Mercury emphasizes a focus on prevention," said Baumgartner. "We perform regular audits of plant safety practices and we educate our employees about what programs are in place to ensure continued operational safety. 

"Ultimately, we are steadfast in our commitment to make safety part of everything we do."
