Oklahoma City, Okla., April 28, 2011 –
The Terex manufacturing facility in Oklahoma City, Okla., recently received the
Terex Chairman’s Award for Safety and Health after surpassing the
1.2-million-hour mark without a loss-time incident. To celebrate, in March the
facility held an all-employee celebratory lunch and ceremony, attended by Terex
corporate safety director Barton McMillion and Oklahoma Safety Council director
Dave Koeneke. 

It’s been nearly two years since the last recorded loss-time incident
at the facility of more than 350 workers.

“It’s like batting .400 in baseball . . . it happens, but not too
often,” commented Drew McCarthick, health, safety and environmental specialist.
