Safety

Living Safely is one of Owens Corning's six company values. We want all of our employees, their families and community members to have full confidence in the health and safety of our global operations. Every year, we improve our safety performance, and this is demonstrated by our decreasing recordable incident rate.

We recognize that our safety performance is critical – and that’s why we take a very strategic and disciplined approach to managing risks and impacts across our global operations. One key aspect of this is the rigorous application of the principles of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) in everything we do. As a continuous improvement methodology, TPM focuses on three basic essentials:

  • The Three Zeros (Zero Accidents, Zero Defects, Zero Losses).

While we are still working on our journey to Zero, we are already seeing great results. And, when you join Owens Corning, you will play an important part in keeping our facilities, practices and more the safest they can be.

TPM

The 8 pillars of TPM:

  • Planned Maintenance
  • Early Management
  • Quality Maintenance
  • Office & Administration
  • Environment, Health & Safety
  • Focused Improvement
  • Autonomous Maintenance
  • Training & Development

Our TPM Vision is:

To achieve a Stable and Reliable operation, delivering Zero Accidents, Zero Defects and Zero Failures. This is achieved through the rigorous application of the principles of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) in everything we do.

Owens Corning has defined TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) as the way of working within the organization. As a continuous improvement methodology, TPM focuses on three basic essentials:

  • Developing people to create ownership.
  • Restoring equipment to ensure basic operation conditions and then improve them.
  • The Three Zeros (Zero Accidents, Zero Defects, Zero Losses).

As we follow these essentials, we are constructing a steady and reliable operation, at which we are able to predict our own future. At the time, we are in the middle of the change, which may be scary, but change is part of our lives, and transformation needs to be led. TPM shows the path for leading that transformation and become a reliable operation. Even though we are still working on our Zero journey, we have already achieved some critical outcomes:

  • Accidents and defects have decreased so we have safer operators and happy customers all over the world.
  • Performance has improved and cost has decreased, both to historical levels. Our business needs will continue to be fulfilled as the market gets more aggressive.
  • People are happier, thus ownership and identification with the company has increased. Most of our plants, have the lowest turnover within their regions.

We want you to be part of the journey.

Sam Gloria

Batch House Leader

"I have been with Owens Corning for 9 years starting in the entry level position Forming Winder Operator. Since then I was able to move through to other positions in the plant in Fabrication, Quality and now my current position as the Batch House Leader. In my mind, OC has been great for me, it has given me the opportunity to grow and develop in my career. They have always rewarded hard work and the willingness to learn new things. In the various positions that I have had here at the plant, I feel that it has given me the insight into our process, as well as giving me the chance to improve in my people leadership and communication. I enjoy working for OC and I will always say that the best part of working here is the opportunities that are available to employees that want to advance and grow in their careers."

Kevin O'Brien

Plant Operations Manager

"I’ve worked for many different organizations over the years and I feel like I’ve finally found the right one… Owens Corning feels like home. What sets it apart for me is the culture of inclusion, the opportunities for growth and development, and the absolutely fantastic team of people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Six years ago, I started on the plant floor as a mechanic and set my sights on growing beyond my maintenance role. Two years later I was given the opportunity to be the plant Continuous Improvement Lead. That position afforded me the freedom to be involved in just about everything that went on at the plant. As a result of that opportunity for learning and development, I was recently awarded the position of plant Operations Manager. OC recognizes and develops talent, and has enabled me to accomplish more than I ever thought possible. I firmly believe the sky’s the limit with OC."

Working Lead Fabrication

“I started in January of 2000 as a Rover. After that I had positions such as Jumbo Doffs, TLZ, Trainer and now am a Working Lead. My experience has been good, I’ve had opportunities to learn new jobs and work on different shifts. I was able to have opportunities like this because I lead by example and I take pride in my job and enjoy teaching others to do the same. Everyone has the same opportunity if they work hard and take notice of available jobs.”
