Safety is not only a priority at Clickstop, it’s part of our culture. We even have a safety team, dedicated to the health and safety of our employees, customers, and community. One benefit Clickstoppers have is access to a wealth of safety knowledge through educational resources and regular training activities. Just a few weeks ago, employees had the opportunity to participate in CPR certification through the American Heart Association. Activities like this one equip Clickstoppers with the tools needed to act quickly when an emergency situation arises.
Quarterly, we recognize a Clickstopper who is committed to the well being of others and encourages greatness in safety in everyone. How do they make safety an important part of the workplace? I sat down with a couple of our previous Safety Award winners, Chris Biechler and Kris Reed, to find out:
How do you keep safety top of mind at work?
Chris: I feel that is it is important for each of us to go home at the end of the day the way we came in – happy and healthy. The people that care about us outside of Clickstop want that too.
Kris: I work as safely as I can, and try to always make sure that others around me are also working safely by making sure that everyone is following safety protocols.
What advice would you give to other Clickstoppers who want to make our workplace safer?
Kris: Make sure that you know the safety regulations in your area and abide by them. Even though it may not be the “cool” thing to do, make sure everyone is following safety rules – if they are not, communicate openly with confidence and respect.
Chris: If you see something that doesn’t seem right. Say something. Lets talk through it and find a solution.
What is your favorite part about working at Clickstop?
Chris: Being able to achieve great results with the people that we have here. We have many opportunities, the path that is created is up to the individual. Which is really cool!
Kris: I think the people here are truly amazing!
What are your major goals at Clickstop? How are you going to make it happen?
Kris: To be the greatest version of myself in any role I may be in. Practice makes perfect.
Chris: Be the best I can be for the team, and get the best effort I can out of each and everyone that I work with. I will continue to learn and grow to be better than I was the day before.
