Observed in June, National Safety Month lead by the National Safety Council focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities. Arnold Oil Company partnered with the National Safety Council to increase and reinforce safety knowledge in the workplace. At Arnold Oil Company, safety is a top priority. We encourage employees to take advantage of our continuing educational training videos and other resources.
To help increase awareness of safety, Arnold Oil Company’s Safety Department ran a month long campaign. Employees Jason R. and Ray S., promoted continuing safety education throughout the company. Every week a bulletin covering a certain topic of safety was sent to executives and management to be distributed throughout the company. The four topics were:
A company wide contest was instilled for all of the employees to participate in with the goal to increase safety training and knowledge. In order to participate employees had to complete a series of training modules. Prizes included a YETI cooler, apparel, and much more.
When asked what celebrating National Safety Month meant to Manager -ESF&H, Jason R. states, “Celebrating National Safety Month has been an honor because I had the opportunity to share with the company the importance of safety knowledge in the workplace. Each and every person who leaves his home for his work in the morning should come back to his home in evening in good health. We can easily accomplish preventing injuries and improving safety on the job with everyone’s commitment.“
On Friday, July 5, the winners were announced from the different divisions of the company. Arnold Oil Company would like to thank everyone that participated and completed the safety course training. No matter if you won or not, learning about how you can practice workplace safety better will not only benefit you but also our company. We are very grateful to have a great safety team that educates all of us.
