Two National Gypsum Plants Achieve Safety Milestones

National Gypsum Company announces that two of its plants have earned the Lloyd H. Yeager Award, a safety honor given by the Gypsum Association to its member companies that achieve 1 million hours worked by associates without a lost time accident.


Through accountability programs and teamwork, National Gypsum’s Anniston, Ala., paper plant and Shippingport, Pa., wallboard plant both were honored with the Yeager award. This is the first time the Anniston plant and its approximately 78 associates have reached this milestone. Shippingport worked 2 million hours without a lost time accident among its nearly 90 associates.


Hitting the million-hour mark is dependent on numerous factors including, the type of plant, the number of employees, how large the plant is, how many shifts are worked, and demand for the product over the course of a year, or even years. This year, 13 plants are being recognized with this honor.


Both plants have adopted a variety of ongoing initiatives to build a safety-first culture.
