CPI Celebrates June as National Safety Month

Safety MonthFounded in 1913, the National Safety Council (NSC) has long been championing the role that safety plays in our daily lives. In the workplace, on the highways, in the home and everywhere in between, the NSC's commitment to safety awareness is highlighted during the month of June, officially recognized as National Safety Month.

Of course, while the NSC strives to represent safety and accident prevention both in the home and office, Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI) is especially committed to year-round safety at all three of our major plant operations across the United States, as well as our offices across the world.

CPI EmployeeIn this regard, CPI's commitment to safety is an expert mix of written policies, incident investigation and constant safety auditing to ensure the well being of our employees is priority number one. To achieve this goal, CPI's Environmental, Health and Safety Manager, Craig Tobin, focuses on these key areas:

  • Involvement - through CPI safety committee membership, safety buddies (Georgetown, TX location), safety idea submissions, first-aid first responders
  • Incentive and Recognition - safety SMART goals, monthly recognition at owners meetings, safety BINGO, a variety of safety campaigns, including "Put the Freeze on Accidents" and "Safety Derby"
  • Training - satisfying federal requirements while keeping safety skills fresh. Includes safety huddles, respirator/forklift/electrical/bloodborne pathogen/lock-out equipment training, and APT-grams (summary findings and preventative measures of incidents).
Naturally, CPI's safety program is only as strong as the effort put forth by our employee owners, which is why we're especially proud of one of our more recent safety initiatives, the 144ft2/360º standard. In this instance, every CPI employee owner, whether on the manufacturing floor or behind a desk, is tasked with maintaining a safe work environment in a 144ft2 radius by a full 360º spectrum - wherever they move to throughout the day.
 
This comprehensive plan ensures that employee owners are not only mindful of the safety precautions in our immediate vicinity, but looking out for each other on a round-the-clock basis.
   
As we continue to celebrate June as National Safety Month, all of us here at CPI are proud to carry on the hard work and best practices every single day! Jeff Cihocki, eContent Specialist and Craig Tobin, Environmental, Health and Safety Manager.
