Publish date:

Mercury Marine Canada said its plant in Milton, Ontario, has been injury-free since 2010.

The company is celebrating the milestone — 1 million hours without a lost-time injury.

Milton, Mercury’s headquarters in Canada, has 58 employees and houses corporate functions such as finance, sales, marketing and service. It is home to Mercury finished goods, parts and accessories, and Land ‘N’ Sea Canada.

“Building and maintaining a culture of safety, as well as attention to detail, has been the key to our success as a business unit here in Milton,” general manager Georges Jalbert said in a statement.

“By assuring a safe work environment, developing and promoting safe work practices, continually improving processes and engaging the entire team in working safely every day, our team in Canada has built a solid foundation for continued success,” Mercury Marine president John Pfeifer said. “Achieving this record over the length of time in which it has occurred is a testimony to the sustainability of our safety culture, reflecting our value for our employees, our customers and the communities where we conduct business.”
