As we wrap up our safety awareness week here at KONE Spares, we celebrated our over 8 years of zero injury accidents with a luncheon and a group shot complete with commemorative shirts.
You can bet we all held our breaths and prayed no one would get hurt at the luncheon. That would have been really bad. The good news is, the safety celebration luncheon was completely safe.
A warehouse full of heavy parts and boxes, many of them up on tall shelves, with forklifts, trucks, and cranes moving while our staff rushes to accurately pick parts and ship them out on time — zero injury accidents in over 8 years is something to be proud of, and we are.
We’re also dedicated to be celebrating 10 years, and 15, and 20 years of zero accidents in the same way. Safety is a day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute act of mindfulness. It doesn’t stop, even when this year’s “safety week” is over.
Very good job, team! Good work. Keep it going. And to you out there in the industry — any industry, for that matter, remember that in safety … little things matter.
