January Safety Brief

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

A Note from Leanne: January

As we kick off 2013, I wanted to take a moment to again thank all of you for your hard work in 2012. Each year, as we evaluate our past year’s performance, it becomes increasingly challenging to measure our organization’s safety success. Our high expectations of excellence, and in some cases perfection, in safety and health incite us to ask, “In what ways can we continue to strive for excellence year after year, when we already believe our program is Best-in-Class?”
I believe that the answer to that question lies in our definition of success. Maybe it’s having zero injuries or reporting more Good Catches; maybe it’s being part of an advanced training program or a specialty safety services program. Regardless, our commitment to continuous improvement in those areas (among others) will help us define safety excellence, and ultimately, define our success as a Best-in-Class organization.
So as we look to 2013, a year that will undoubtedly offer us many opportunities for tremendous growth and development, let’s recommit ourselves to Best-in-Class safety through excellence in everything we do. Let’s make Best-in-Class “business as usual”: nothing flashy, not a huge campaign, just day-to-day excellence that doesn’t need to be advertised.

December Safety Brief

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

A Note From Leanne: December

As another year comes to a close, I think it’s important to step back for a moment and look at our performances, both individually and as an organization in regards to safety and health. Though we have standard industry safety performance indicators such as TRIR, each one of us has different opinions on what makes us successful in safety; and so, though I could list off what I think defines our year in regards to safety, I’m more interested in how you think we did. In 2012, how would you rate our safety performance as a team? How would you rate your individual safety performance? I hope that each of you can say not only that your effort was Best-in-Class, but your results were too. If either missed the mark in 2012, let’s make it our goal to improve in 2013; improve our efforts and the results will follow.
On behalf of our Executive Team and Safety Team, I would like to thank each of you for your contributions to safety and health in 2012.

November Safety Brief

Friday, November 30, 2012

Please see MER's Monthly Safety Brief and Newsletter for the month of November that we share with our employees.  We invite you to follow these monthly submittals by following our Blog.

A Note From Leanne: November

"The holiday season is upon us; it’s the time of year when many of us start reflecting on the last eleven months or so, and start thinking about all of the new beginnings ahead of us with the New Year. With all of that thinking about our past and our future, it’s sometimes easy to forget just how important it is to think about the present, and focus on what you’re doing right here, right now. As we celebrate this holiday season, please take the time to think about safety: your safety, your co-workers’ safety and the safety of your family. Though not typically a gift found under the tree, coming home safely from work each day is the best present you can ever give."

October Safety Brief

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Please see MER's Monthly Safety Brief and Newsletter for the month of October that we share with our employees.  We invite you to follow these monthly submittals by following our Blog.

A Note From Leanne:

When someone asks you about your job, what do you say? Do you explain to them the type of work our companies perform, the type of clients we have or maybe tell them about the specialty projects or big spills that we’re involved in? Do you tell them about the MER family of companies or the different locations that we have? How many times do you tell people about our Best-in-Class safety program or about the specialty PPE we utilize or the safety training that all of our employees go through? Do you ever talk about our Good Catch program or our Site Assessment initiative? If safety isn’t relevant when you describe your job, how relevant is it when you’re actually doing your job?

September Safety Brief

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Please see MER's Monthly Safety Brief and Newsletter for the month of September that we share with our employees.  We invite you to follow these monthly submittals by following our Blog.

A note from Leanne:

"…Rounding third and heading for home…" For those familiar with the popular baseball phrase, you know it means that the person on base is on the last leg of their journey home. At this point, there are two possible outcomes a) they can be thrown out; or b) they can make it home safely, score a run, hopefully helping their team win the game. Our 2012 Best-in-Class safety journey is in the same place, figuratively speaking. We are turning the corner from Q3 to Q4 and looking to make it to the end of 2012 without any additional injuries. Doing so won’t ensure a victory in our journey towards Best-in-Class, but it certainly will help. As we move through the rest of the year, I encourage everyone to stay safe and stay focused; the efforts we put forth between today and the end of 2012 will help determine our success for both this year and beyond.
