SANDERSVILLE, Georgia , October 17, 2011 (press release) – Thiele Kaolin Company is pleased to announce that the company has worked three years without incurring a lost time accident. This accomplishment sets a new company safety record.
Thiele’s President Paul Kirschling noted that “this milestone could not have been achieved without each Thiele employee’s full commitment to working safely.”

Celebratory steak lunches were held at the company’s Sandersville and Reedy Creek division to commemorate the milestone. In remarks given at these events, Kirschling said that “the ultimate goal is not to set records but to make sure every employee goes home every day without getting hurt.” Kirschling further challenged all employees to finish 2011 with no new accidents and to make 2012 completely accident free. “While we are all happy to celebrate this momentous occasion, we cannot be satisfied with three years without a lost time accident.
Our goal has been and will continue to be an accident free workplace.”
