ITW Heartland Business Unit Passes Safety Milestone

Midway through the first quarter of 2011, ITW Heartland’s Manufactured Products business unit celebrated 3 years without a lost time incident.

“Safety is a very high priority for ITW as a whole, and for the Heartland community,” states Brian Baustian, ITW Heartland’s General Manager. “To pass the 3 year mark in this type of manufacturing environment is testimony to ITW’s safety training and commitment, and to the diligence of the women and men who support our safety objectives on a daily basis.”
