Menard Group USA employees came from all over the country to gather in Pittsburgh on February 7th and 8th at the Annual Safety Meeting. This annual event brings together our entire talented team - from laborers, welders, and operators - to accountants, engineers, and administrators - with the goal of continued safety training to promote our strong safety culture.
The Safety theme was heard throughout the first day of training. Topics of break out sessions included safe rigging fundamentals, safe equipment practices, mindfulness for stress reduction and risk management training.
Following the breakout sessions , the team welcomed guest speaker Joel Feldman, founder of EndDD.org, who lost his daughter, Casey, to a distracted driver. Joel spoke about his mission for all drivers to work together to end Distracted Driving in order to keep us all safe on the roads. His profound and heartfelt message hit home with the entire Menard Group USA team and touched everyone on a personal level.
Awards were given to our four 2019 Safety Champions with Scott Forrester bringing home the coveted Safety Boot Award!
Awards were also presented to the Green Idea Winners, Justin Labrozzi -1st place, Jason Powers - 2nd place and Mark Bibby - 3rd place. The Green Idea Awards were based on the concept of encouraging all employees to think about how the company can minimize waste, save resources, and reduce our carbon footprint as we go about our work.
Congrats to all the Winners!
