Whitesville Mill Services – Certified STAR

Whitesville Mill Services, 4567 Nucor Rd., Crawfordsville, has achieved certification in the Indiana Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) as a ‘STAR’ worksite for excellence in workplace safety and health.

Established in 1989 on the Crawfordville Nucor Steel site, Whitesville Mill Services employs 44 workers who remove slag generated by the process of making steel, then recycle materials and reprocess them into usable aggregates for both public and private roads, as well as products for agricultural use. The facility maintains a strong partnership with Nucor.

Management and employees at Whitesville Mill Services maintain and participate in frequent hazard identification and prevention programs, conduct regular training and inspections and practice thorough safety communication. Because of its commitment to protecting employees, the site experienced only one recordable injury, with no lost-work time, in nearly five years.

“Management and employees at Whitesville Mill Services should consider themselves examples of workplace safety and health for other Hoosier businesses to follow,” said Indiana Department of Labor (IDOL) Commissioner Rick J. Ruble. “They’ve worked hard and earned the title of ‘STAR’ in this program. We’re proud to recognize this Crawfordsville facility.”
