Safety Onboarding Training

CEO Corner

When a company has been in the business for over 60 years, it becomes difficult to forget decades of experience and put oneself in the position of a new employee. So many things that our most valued team members take for granted are brand new concepts to our more recent hires.

To protect ourselves from stagnation, our safety committee has been re-vamped to include an assortment of veteran and new employees, including representation from all departments, and all employment levels. The change has resulted in more engaged meetings, a better exchange of information, and innovative action items. As a result of these meetings, we have initiated a re-working our onboarding training processes in a collaborative effort between safety coordinators, veteran employees, and employees with less than 1 year of experience to ensure that the information shared is appropriate and useful. At the recommendation of our more recent hires, we will add a follow-up training session after completion of 90 days, when the employee has more hands-on knowledge of the job, and training is more likely to settle in and be applied correctly.

We are confident that these changes will have a beneficial impact on the safety and wellness of our entire team.
