“We believe successful safety performance begins with a culture built on the principles from the book Extreme Ownership,” said Matt Struiksma, Desert Cities plant manager. “We are responsible for the choices we make during every moment of every day and it’s on each team member to ensure best practices are not only met personally, but to hold each other accountable to that standard.”
