SUNRISE, Fla., July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Since engaging ProcessMAP Corporation, the leading provider of cloud-based enterprise software for Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) solutions, to standardize and streamline its global health and safety processes, USG Corporation (NYSE: USG) has improved its safety performance, earning industry awards and setting records.
USG, a $3.2 billion building products company with more than 175 manufacturing, mining and distribution locations, asked ProcessMAP to support its world-class health and safety management program in 2011. Over a five-month period, USG and ProcessMAP jointly developed a technology blueprint and rapidly deployed the platform company-wide to USG's more than 9,000 employees. The platform serves as the backbone for a wide range of initiatives, supporting USG's commitment to employee health and safety, including regulatory compliance with OSHA and MSHA recordkeeping, as well as safety data analysis and metrics reporting.
With ProcessMAP's global safety management platform, USG achieved the following:
- Revamped and established company-wide consistency in incident and near-miss management (e.g., reporting, investigation and root cause analysis, action items management)
- Streamlined workers' compensation claims management with one-stop reporting to claims Third Party Administrators (TPAs);
- Deployed real-time dashboards to increase transparency and company-wide visibility to safety performance indicators at all levels at USG;
- Performed mobile-based audits and inspections – driving compliance and cutting audit timing significantly;
- Institutionalized proactive action items tracking with compliance calendar.
"Since we partnered with ProcessMAP in deploying an enterprise platform to streamline our global health and safety processes, we've been given a holistic view into what's happening at our organization, in real-time. We can take immediate action on emerging trends. It's truly been transformative," said Justin Dugas, Director of Safety and Health at USG. "Moreover, it's helped us set new industry records. Just last year, our plant in Galena Park, Texas, surpassed over 9,000 days and 9,000,000 hours without a lost time injury."
"Helping advance USG's world-class employee safety performance throughout its manufacturing, distribution, and mining operations has been incredibly rewarding, and we're thrilled to be a part of their continued success," said Dave Rath, Chief Executive Officer of ProcessMAP. "USG has served as a true illustration in how implementing actionable insights, taken from over 300 key performance indicators, can greatly improve employee safety and drive meaningful operational efficiencies."
USG is an industry leader in safety and has received many awards and distinctions, including: National Mining Association "Sentinels of Safety Award" (15-time award-winner); OSHA Voluntary Protection Program "Star" recognition (fewer than 2,300 of the more than 8,000,000 worksites in the United States currently hold this designation); and charter member of the National Safety Council and member of its Campbell Institute, an organization that brings together companies demonstrating safety leadership.
