Milliken & Company is a 144 year old textile and chemical company based in South Carolina that has been internationally recognized for its achievements in safety and operational excellence. With safety as its #1 core value, Milliken has 44 OSHA certified Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) STAR sites, the third largest number in the nation.
The Milliken Plus 1 Safety Process is a proven, 20-step process that engages the entire workforce. Driven by the desire to eliminate ALL safety incidents, this proprietary process has been developed over the past decade through benchmarking best practices around the world and actively engaging and empowering the entire workforce. While Milliken & Company has been recognized as a benchmark in safety, the goal still remains ZERO. The chart on the left shows Milliken's global Total Injury and Incident Rate (TIIR) compared with industry averages.
The Milliken Plus 1 Safety Process is a comprehensive system that leads to dramatic breakthroughs in employee safety, motivation and morale, and overall cost reduction. It is all about cultural and systems changes, and not just about the application of tools. This process applies to all types of businesses, from manufacturing to public and private industry. It is about changing the way employees go about doing their job, not bolting on safety initiatives that are not sustainable over the long term.
The Milliken Plus 1 Safety Process is an employee-centric approach to improving safety that is designed to build an organic, internal capability that is permanently infused into the organization. Milliken has been recognized repeatedly by organizations such as EHS Today magazine (formerly Occupational Hazards) as one of the safest companies in the U.S., regardless of industry. Milliken is the only American company that has won the top manufacturing award in both the United States and Japan -- the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in the U.S. and the TPM Excellence Award sponsored by the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance. In addition, Milliken has been named five times as one of the Best Companies to Work For in FORTUNE magazine's annual top 100 listing. The company has also been named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere magazine.
