Learn how to achieve a zero incident rate, from professionals who have done it themselves. That's the Milliken Safety Way.
Safety is the fundamental building block to creating a high-performing, sustainable manufacturing operating system. When people aren’t worried about getting hurt, they are free to think about other parts of their jobs. They can think about improving quality or how to improve machine performance. In many instances, if we eliminate minor machine stops and breakdowns, we improve safety management — which also improves efficiency.
Safety can and should be used as a strategic lever. At Milliken, we believe the safety of the workforce should be the first concern for any CEO. Companies that aspire to be World-Class in manufacturing must have safety as a core value. Safety and health are personal to every human being and can profoundly impact their motivation and morale. Our employee-centric approach to improving safety is designed to build a sustainable, organic, internal capability.
We don’t believe that businesses have to choose between safety or production, but instead can have both. The existence of a connection between safety and quality leads to measurable productivity improvements and a direct impact on your bottom line. It also leads to improved morale and increased productivity.

As one of the safest companies in North America, Milliken believes a zero-incident rate is possible and that improving safety in manufacturing is worth the effort. We’ve spent decades perfecting our proven and transferable best practices that comprise the Milliken Safety Way, and we want to share our methodology with organizations serious about change. If you’re dissatisfied with status quo, Performance Solutions by Milliken has the safety training, consulting, and education services you need to accomplish your safety goals and revolutionize your business.
“We’ve made safety part of a daily management system that provides common language, common processes and common goals within a plant and within any and all plants in the company.”
A World Class safety program cannot rest on the shoulders of only the safety professionals in the environment. The Milliken Safety Way engages all associates at every level of the organization to own safety by participating in the improvement of their environment. This supports the development of many subject matter experts who own and are responsible for the varied aspects of a safety program that yields zero incidents. Milliken’s Safety Consulting Services provide support to organizations as these aspects are developed:
All manufacturing processes come with their own unique sets of hazards. Manufacturing processes must be evaluated for safety hazards to minimize or eliminate the hazards to keep employees safe.Managing Safety in Process Manufacturing
