At Antron Engineering and Machine, an essential part of our daily process is employee safety. Our employees are responsible for our success, and safe operations are both crucial to the completion of client projects as well as employee job satisfaction. Antron’s employee safety committee is helping us keep this laser focus in both the shop floor and the front office.
The committee comprised of 8 staff members, meets monthly to review all areas of the company, looking for opportunities to improve safety for our employees. In the past few months we have worked on additional operational classes and training for everything from forklift and crane operations, to the mezzanine system, CPR and first aid. Physical safety topics were also addressed including an update to fire evacuation drills and procedures, additional fire extinguishers, updated floor plans for emergencies and new emergency lights.
In all cases, tracking the issues and their subsequent resolutions are in the hands of a staff member who is responsible for completion and follow-up reporting. This safety committee system has become part of our regular operations and as of this writing has resulted in more than 300 days without a recordable accident.
We are proud of Antron’s focus on safety and our strong safety record. We are also thankful for the employees serving on our safety committee who help with an ongoing process of reviewing, improving and implementing our many safe operation procedures.
