The health and safety of our employees is our highest priority. We strive for a safety record among the best in the world. Employees at every level of the Company are expected to guard against workplace injuries by recognizing risks and taking action to minimize injuries. In addition to complying with all applicable laws and regulations, we are committed to nurturing a culture in which safety is a core value. A safe and healthy workforce is more able to meet the needs of customers. Our operating companies regularly conduct safety awareness campaigns to highlight the importance of safety to our employees.
ATI Flat Rolled Products continues to excel in its safety performance. Another example of our commitment to employee health and safety is found in our ATI Specialty Alloys and Components facility located in Albany, Oregon. Since our safety awareness campaign began there in the mid-1970s, our on-the-job injury rates are less than half the rate for facilities in the same industrial classification.
Our Shanghai STAL facility in China provides an example of our dedication to the health and safety of our employees. The local laws for workplace safety are considerably less stringent than those found in more developed countries. We decided, however, to implement state-of-the-art safety standards far beyond local requirements. Our investment in safety has resulted in healthier employees and a safety record comparable to our U.S. facilities and ultimately better quality products for our customers.
A number of our locations provide a complete health services department, staffed by a full-time nurse to perform routine medical surveillance, administer company-wide health maintenance and back-to-work programs, and provide emergency medical care, when needed. Other ongoing health and safety awareness programs include monthly training, Joint Health & Safety Committee inspections, Wellness Committee initiatives, such as fitness and weight loss programs, under the direction of a full-time Wellness Coordinator, and on-going assessments of safety programs.
