June is National Safety Council’s National Safety Month. Safety is our number one Company Value and we incorporate it into everything we do. We hold safety meetings at the plant and corporate level every week, ensuring we carry the same practices across all our locations. We also hold weekly safety committee meetings in our plants where potential hazards and risks are identified to prevent future safety issues and promote continuous improvement. Our safety committee also provides positive recognition for employees who demonstrate our Core Values as well as employees who have new safety ideas we should implement. Twice a week our forklift drivers meet with our site EHS managers to review safety protocols to encourage safe operation of industrial vehicles.
In addition, we host health and safety events across all of our facilities every year, including flu shots, hearing tests, and blood drives and we recently completed the second round of our onsite COVID-19 vaccination clinics. Safety is our top priority.
