Safety is important at Blentech. Today we celebrated many safety accomplishments and the one we are most proud of is reflected in the photo above – 1,319 days without a lost time accident! To acknowledge our team that makes safety a daily priority, every few months we have an all-staff safety lunch and today was a beautiful day in Northern California to have a barbeque.
Our Director of Manufacturing, Jon Valez with the assistance of Erin Whelan, an Applications Engineer, barbecued fresh from the ranch – an employee’s ranch – “gangus beef” hamburgers. A gangus beef burger comes from a cow that’s a cross between a Galloway and an Angus.
That’s some hamburger!
Our employees were eager to get in line for their fresh gangus burgers topped with sauteed peppers and onions, bacon, cheese, a fried egg, lettuce and tomato all prepared by the Blentech team.
Jon spoke to our team about safety issues that included “Lock-Out, Tag-Out”. He informed our team that pursuant to our safety policies, our current manufacturing and service team are all trained in Lock-Out, Tag-Out and as new employees come in, they are trained as well.
Each employee can enter their ideas for the next month’s safety slogan – this month’s winner was Adam Hammack, Lead Welder for “Avoid the worst, put safety first.”
Blentech then celebrated the retirement of our Accounts Payable professional, Rickie Troxell. We wish Rickie all the best on her retirement!
Blentech and safety go hand-in-hand. Our team takes pride in making this a daily priority.
