Clearfield Utility Trailer Plant Earns Safety Award

Press Release

August 12, 2014

Clearfield – Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company’s Clearfield manufacturing plant has received the Liberty Mutual Insurance Silver Safety Award.

The safety awards are based on DART rates (days away, restricted and transferred), which are calculated by factoring the number of hours worked relative to the number of accidents at the plant. Low occurrences of accidents result in lower DART rates. In order to qualify for the Safety Award, a DART rate of at least 60 percent better than the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is needed with a minimum of 200,000 work-hours.

The Clearfield manufacturing plant achieved a DART rate of 1.62, which is 29 percent of the 2012 trailer manufacturing industry average of 5.5.

“Being recognized by Liberty Mutual is a big deal,” said Dennis Wilson, Utility’s Clearfield environmental health and safety (EHS) manager. “But not as big a deal as sending employees home to see their families and loved ones after every shift.”

The Liberty Mutual Silver Safety Award was presented to Steve Smith (Utility's now-retired plant manager and an employee for more than 42 years) and the entire management team, on behalf of all Clearfield employees.
