MFG Chemical Implements Reverse Parking at All Facilities, Enhancing Safety Culture

DALTON, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MFG Chemical, a global leader in specialty and custom chemical
manufacturing, and recent winner of several awards for plant safety, is
implementing the practice of ‘reverse parking’ at all four of its
manufacturing, R & D and headquarters facilities.

According to MFG Chemical President & CEO Keith Arnold, “At MFG Chemical
we are always interested in new ways of reducing risk and enhancing our
safety culture. Parking in reverse is a simple way to reduce the risk of
accidents; by reverse parking you avoid backing out blindly into
oncoming traffic or into the path of pedestrians. Also, when employees
reverse park as they arrive at work, it is a good start to their safety
behavior throughout the workday.”

Joe Welch, MFG Chemical Director of EHS&S further explained, “The
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) shows that 20% of all
vehicle accidents happen in parking lots. The National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that 267 people are killed and
15,000 injured each year in the US by drivers who back into them,
usually in a driveway or parking lot. Reverse parking will lower the
risk of these kinds of accidents.”

Barry Lassiter, MFG Chemical VP Operations and former Safety Director at
both MFG and DuPont added, “Reverse parking is recommended by the
American Automobile Association and is practiced by many of our
customers, especially in the oil & gas industry. Reverse parking is now
part of the safety culture here at MFG Chemical.”
