Our safety opportunity program was strong last year. Over 4,200 safety opportunities were turned in; companywide, our employees earned 60,000 safety opportunity points. Our goal was to have 3.0 safety opportunities turned in per 1,000 hours worked and we exceeded that by reaching 4.5 per 1,000 hours. Our goal for 2019 is to reach 4.5 again.
In 2018, Mike Arneson’s crew earned the most safety opportunity points per hour worked and therefore Mike received the remaining 75% of the points his crew earned (reminder that every month, supervisors receive 25% of the safety opportunity points their crew earned). Nice job Mike!
Again in 2019, our focus will be on our Think 3 campaign. We will work hard to prevent hand injuries and those injuries related to slips, trips & falls, and manual material handling.
