We have kicked off a risk assessment tool at a couple of our facilities over the past few months.   This tool is very powerful and allows us to take a laser approach to safety.    I have decided that we will kick off a little friendly COMPETITION between a couple of our facilities.   This COMPETITION will create a little excitement and rivalry amongst the participating facilities.

The risk assessment tool takes a targeted job and assigns a score (1-25) based upon severity and frequency.   Improvements are brainstormed and a new score is assigned to the targeted job.   The goal is to move the meter on the targeted job and eliminate risk (severity x frequency).   The COMPETITION between the facilities will enable us to target risky areas and make them safer.   The winning team will receive a cookout for all employees at that facility.    If we have the COMPETITION once per month between two facilities – we will reduce 24 targeted risky jobs in one year.

I’m all in favor of a little friendly COMPETITION – What about you?

STAY SAFE!     **  Jeff  **   214-215-2434
