10 Sep 2023

imageSukup Manufacturing Co. of Sheffield, Iowa was awarded a President’s Choice Hazard Control Award from the Iowa-Illinois Safety Council during the 62nd Annual Professional Development Conference and expo held in Dubuque, Iowa April 22- 24, 2015

Sukup Manufacturing Co. was chosen as one of five President’s Choice recipients from over 101 entries from industries and government agencies in Illinois and Iowa. Applicants submitted hazard control projects and programs designed to improve the safety culture of the organizations. The top five projects from those submissions were chosen for this prestigious honor.

Sukup received the award for improvements to an assembly process. A lift table was added to a work area, eliminating multiple personal injury hazards. The lift table also makes the work station adjustable to any size person and allows employees to choose whether they sit or stand to perform the assembly tasks. Not only did it make the assembly process safer, it also transformed the task from a two-person job to one that can be completed by one person. It also reduced assembly time by 50%.
