KINGSPORT, Tenn.--Since 1994, General Shale's plant has operated without losing a single minute of work due to an accident. That equates to two million hours without a loss-time accident, a production rate of 1.9 million bricks-per-week, and 700 tons of raw material handled every day. The employees of the plant had a catered steak lunch in recognition of the plant's accomplishment. The event had a western theme; employees were treated to a bluegrass band and the opportunity to ride a mechanical bull. "I told them every time we reach a milestone, we will have a cookout," said Kingsport plant manager Alvin Hall. "We are going to celebrate and keep giving safety awards."
