Each day we head to work, we go with the belief that we will return at the end of the day in the same condition as when we left. We trust in the safety of our environment and in the commitment of the people around us to do things safely as well.
There are those special individuals who consistently prioritize the safety of themselves and others, and who help make sure we make it back home to our loved ones without injury.
Jenny Rapp is one such person.
Keeping A Lookout
Jenny is always watching out for her team to ensure safe practices. As the Manufacturing team was working to fulfill a large contract order, she took note of the way people were twisting & turning during packing. The quantity of items to be produced, combined with the repetition of movement was exposing the team to safety risks in the wrist, shoulder, and back.
She asked if there was more that could be done.
As a result, we had our insurance provider onsite to show stretching techniques to improve flexibility and reduce the chances of injuries. Jenny continues to be a cheerleader for pre-shift stretching.
Jenny has also done a great job of continually looking for ways to improve safety by understanding risk factors. When safety risk was high, she increased awareness by notifying the safety and Warehouse teams that pallets stacked by the supplier could fall and cause serious injury. Additionally, Jenny looked at where the safety risk is lower and requested a reevaluation by the safety team to ensure not wearing safety glasses in the desk area would be in compliance with OSHA regulations.
A huge thank you to Jenny Rapp for ensuring our coworkers and friends make it home safely every day.

I’ve been a safety pirate since the beginning of that program. I keep myself aware of what is going on in our manufacturing space so I can fix things I am able to or contact those who can.

Without safety we would not be able to do our jobs successfully. We need everyone to be safe and healthy to work at 100%.
