culture of safety where we live, work and play
Encouraging a Employees stand up for safety
On June 13, employees across the company paused their work to participate in a 30-minute Safety Stand Up — a proactive discussion to help keep safety top of mind. During these meetings, supervisors provided an update on our journey to zero injuries and reviewed the STAR concept — Stop, Think, Act, Review.
Bob DeLair, a line field supervisor for Central Service & Design Underground Network at Rose City, led his team
in a lively discussion that prompted Steve Thibodeau, a journeyman cable splicer, to speak up for safety regarding hearing protection. “The new presses have a loud sound that makes me more aware of how important it is to use proper hearing protection,” Thibodeau said.
DeLair added, “Even though the new battery-operated tools provide many benefits, we still need to always use proper safety procedures.”
The Safety Stand Up provided an opportunity for people to talk about their personal reasons for working safely. Here’s a look at how employees dedicated time for safety.
