Safety is Like Butter, Because it's on a Roll!!!

Good afternoon to all I.D.I. employees:  I just want to provide a little safety update about our injuries.  We are currently on a pretty good roll as far as our consecutive days worked since our last lost-time injury.  We have worked 203 consecutive days since the last lost-time injury occurred dating back to May 17, 2013.  We have a few milestones ahead of us.  Our next milestone goal would be 300 consecutve days, then the 1 full year mark of 365 days and if we can keep it rolling, the next milestone would be to break our record for the past 15 years which is 435 consecutive days worked between lost-time injuries. 

Lets keep this safety train rolling straight down the track and shoot for our upcoming milestones. 

To do this, we all need to be on the same page and looking out for one another.  If you observe someone not working in a safe manner, please reach out to them for their own well-being and on behalf of their loved ones and talk to them about stopping what they are doing unsafely.  It is in all of our best interest that all of us perform in a safe appropriate manner.  Injuries are no fun for anyone especially the injured employee and his family members.  Your loved ones depend on you to work safely and to come home to them in an injury-free and healthy manner.  The next time you catch yourself working unsafe, ask yourself why?  Why am I working unsafe?  It is because I feel I don't have time to go grab a pair of safety glasses?  Is it because I don't have time to go get safety rails for my scaffold because I have to get the job done?  The jobs always do get done and they get done in a more professional and appropriate manner when done safely.  If an injury occurs at a project, the job won't make any money.  Just like production, when it comes to safety, do it right and do it right the first time! 

Keep in mind I.D.I.'s Safety Mission Statement: "Everyone Goes Home Alive and in the Same Condition as They Arrived; Your Loved Ones Count On It!"
Have a Safe Day!
