You and your manager, office manager, safety director, ginners, supervisors, truck drivers and all other gin employees are invited to attend one of the Safety Seminars listed on the enclosed schedule.
Each seminar will begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at noon.
Our seminars in 2019 will focus on:
1. PPE in YOUR Gin – Group Discussion
2. Back Safety, Proper Lifting Techniques – Video and Handbooks
3. Distracted Driving / CMV Defensive Driving – 2 Videos & 2 Handbooks
4. How YOUR Gin Controls Hazardous Energy and Dangers from Automation – Group Discussion
Our goal for the 2019 ginning season is to have safe and healthy employees with no deaths, amputations or serious injuries. Investigating close calls and accidents, and encouraging employee input during weekly safety meetings is an excellent way to identify hazards to be eliminated.
Establish a safety team and let them take the safety program a step further both in and out of ginning season.
