Pilkington Officials Say They Are Committed to Safety in Light of Recent Employee Fatality, OSHA Violations
October 5, 2010

Pilkington North America officials have issued a statement citing the company's commitment to safety, in light of a recent fatality following an accident at the company's Shelbyville, Ind., auto glass plant, and several OSHA citations received earlier this year.

"Pilkington is committed to achieving the highest standards of health and safety and places a high priority on safety compliance," says company spokesperson Roberta Steedman in a written statement.

Company officials say the incidents are unrelated.

"There is no connection between these OSHA citations at the Shelbyville plant and what tragically happened to Mr. Caudill last week," says Steedman. "The company is cooperating with OSHA and local officials as they continue their investigation to determine the circumstances surrounding this incident and Pilkington is continuing to conduct its own internal review alongside of that investigation."
