Josh's Message:


What is safety? Safety is about more than going through checklists and keeping things clean. It’s not about making sure everything is in its place, memorizing regulations or using scare tactics to get others to comply.

When we put people first, we can start understanding safety. Safety is about going home at the end of the day to your family and friends. It’s about helping others do the same thing. It’s about doing the right thing always. It’s about improving our processes, our environment, and ourselves.

People, relationships, and learning are all at the heart of safety. Safety is about living and learning. We must always follow regulations, make sure everything is in its place and get everyone educated on how to be safe. We have to put our people first and remember that everything we do is so they can be safe.

The CDC is a great example of safety being a learning experience. We have come such a long way in Sebring, and it’s exciting to see associates and friends take ownership of safety because they genuinely care about each other. Have we attained Safety Nirvana? Of course not! It can always get better! Safety isn’t an end goal, it’s a journey. It’s not something in your hands, or a process. It’s the mindset you bring to work each day!

Stay safe!
