October Safety Brief

Thursday, October 2, 2014

A Note from Ashley Rea

Drummac has been a passenger rail industry service provider for over 40 years, and a part of the MER Family of Companies for 2-1/2 years. While the services provided to the rail industry have not changed, joining the MER Family of Companies has allowed Drummac to grow and improve in many ways. Most notably is the incorporation of a Best-in-Class safety culture to Drummac and its employees.

Drummac has some unique challenges for ensuring a safe working environment. We currently have 200+ employees in 24 railroad yards servicing over 100 trains every day. Most of our employees operate as lone workers in low-visibility conditions, on uneven surfaces and adjacent to “live” tracks. Training, proper PPE and nightly tailgate meetings are imperative to keeping our employees safe.

We are pleased to report that since joining the MER Family of Companies, 16 Drummac locations have remained injury-free. Additionally, Drummac employees now have additional opportunities for career advancement by taking part in specialized safety training such as Bloodborne Pathogen and HAZWOPER training.

September Safety Brief

Thursday, September 4, 2014

A Note from Tom Eason...

Safety is the primary focus to every task approached. In the diving community, an industry that allows no margin for error when it comes to safety, we at Eason Diving and Marine Contractors (EDMC) live this value every day.

The EDMC team provides commercial diving services to energy, marine, rail and government clients throughout the southeastern United States. As an inland provider of commercial diving services, we are primarily regulated by OSHA’s Commercial Diving Operations regulations (29 CFR 1910 Subpart T); however, as a responsible diving contractor, we adhere to the more stringent safety practices found in the Association of Diving Contractors International Consensus Standards. Our higher standard for safety has served us well over the past 34 years and we are very proud of the safety achievements that our company has seen through the years.

As we approach the 5-month milestone since joining the MER Family of Companies, we are pleased to have aligned ourselves with an organization with similarly high safety values and are excited to see the future success we are certain to enjoy together.

August Safety Brief

Friday, August 1, 2014

A Note from John Silva

Just as the MER Family of Companies has grown and evolved through the years, MER’s Preparedness and Emergency Response program has also seen a tremendous evolution; from a small locally-managed program that started with responses to home-heating oil spills and truck rollovers, MER’s Preparedness and Emergency Response program has evolved into a nationally-recognized Oil Spill Response Organization (OSRO) that responds to large spill events all over the country and manages several oil spill response cooperatives on the east coast.

According to the US Coast Guard’s website, there are 554 registered OSROs; what makes MER different then the other 553 spill response companies? Is it the vacuum equipment or the boom? Is it the skimmers or the boats? It’s none of these. What sets MER apart from the other companies is the commitment of our employees to safe and effective spill responses. Our dedicated and passionate employees exhibit excellence at every stage of our responses; those efforts have allowed MER to stay injury-free through most of our large-scale responses.

On behalf of the MER organization and those on the Preparedness and Emergency Response Team, thank you for all your efforts during all of our emergency responses.

June Safety Brief

Monday, June 2, 2014

A Note from Leanne...

The National Safety Council recognizes June as National Safety Month, a month dedicated to heightened safety awareness, risk assessment and injury/illness prevention. This designation means that across the country, organizations in all different industries are going to place an extra amount of attention on the safety of their employees through campaigns, special training and safety-focused events. 

I fully support this celebration and am grateful that there is an organization out there driving not only occupational safety but also safety at home. With that said, I am also tremendously proud of our organization as we choose to drive this value everyday at the highest level without need for a special campaign or celebration. Our Best-in-Class safety culture is substantial and thriving in every aspect of our organization and it’s especially evident in the quality of employees we have across our Family of Companies.

On behalf of the Safety Team, thank you for making safety an ordinary, uncelebrated part of your everyday lives.
