On Tuesday, Keetac was recognized as the first-ever winner of the U. S. Steel Chairman's Safety Excellence Award, for the facility's 2012 safety performance.
This honor, created last year, is awarded annually to the U. S. Steel facility that completes medium- and high-risk rated hazard elimination projects while meeting or exceeding recordable injury and days away from work goals.
Keetac exceeded all three performance measures for 2012, including an OSHA recordable injury rate of 0.22 (=1 injury), earning the honor of having the Chairman's Cup on display at Keetac for the year.
Keetac management and workers traveled to Pittsburgh to receive the honor.
