Findlay, Ohio -- For the second time in about a year, Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.'s Tupelo, Mississippi, plant has reached 1 million man-hours without a lost-time incident.
The plant, which hit the same mark in September 2010, is one of 18 plants that earned the Rubber Manufacturers Association's 2010 Improvement award under its Safety and Health Improvement program. The award goes to plants that achieve an incidence rate that is 10-percent better than its rate the previous year and the same or better than the RMA's average incidence rate.
Other Cooper plants that reached this milestone in 2011 are Cooper Kunshan Tire in Kunshan, China, and Cooper's Corporacion de Occident S.A. de C.V. joint venture in Mexico, Cooper said.
