The Pine Bluff Arsenal was recently honored with the U.S. Army Material Command’s Exceptional Organization Safety Award-Brigade level for fiscal year 2015.


This demonstrates the highest levels of dedication by the Arsenal towards safety and being an integral part of protecting the Army’s most valuable resources, according to information from AMC.


"I extend my sincere best wishes to all the winners of the AMC and Army Safety Awards," said Gen. Dennis Via, AMC Commander, in a memo. "Your leadership and support of the AMC Safety and Occupational Health Program is key to its success. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for the safety of our community."


The Arsenal was recognized in June by representatives from the Arkansas Department of Labor, Arkansas Insurance Department and the Arkansas Workers’ Compensation Commission with the One Million Man Hour Award.


The award represented the efforts of approximately 739 employees with one million work hours without a lost day award from work due to a work-related injury or illness between Aug. 18, 2015 and March 31, 2016.


"Pine Bluff Arsenal is working at historically safe levels," Mark Lumpkin, Arsenal director of Risk Management and Regulatory affairs, said of the Million Man Award. "This is a true testament to the dedication of the employees and their ability to work safe. This did not happen by chance. PBA employees are world-class in their safety efforts."
