    2016-05-26 – All CST Plant Facilities

              CST Plant Operations and Construction Services participated in STOP® – Safety Training Observation Program to prevent injuries by increasing safety awareness and helping people talk with each other about safety. Originating within DuPont company operations, STOP® has been recognized for more than 30 years as a leader in world-class employee safety, and has provided workplace training to thousands of organizations worldwide. There are three important concepts that make up the basis of the STOP® program.

                        1. All injuries and occupational illnesses can be prevented. This is a frame of mind, a way of approaching safety that means there is always something that can be done to prevent injuries.

                        2. Supervisors, leaders and team members are all responsible and accountable for the safety of each other.

                        3. Seeing safety and “Making safety second nature.” This means becoming so attuned to safety that a person automatically notices it wherever he or she is.

    2016-05-03 – DeKalb, IL

              CST’s DeKalb facility held a Safety Stand-Down in conjunction with the OSHA National Safety Stand-Down covering Ladder Safety and Trips, Slips, and Falls. Groups initially met in the breakrooms, then broke out into teams to inspect portions of the shop floor. Teams came up with safety issues about these areas, with most issues corrected on the spot. Some issues were put on the safety board to get completed later. Issues like needing to order mats or equipment would take a few days to complete.

              In Conroe, the team decided that meeting once a week as a group to discuss safety issues would be a great idea. They decided to meet for 5-10 minutes every Friday to do a quick inspection through the shop to see if there are any safety issues that need to be addressed. To kick it off, they watched a Trip, Slip and Fall Protection video and listened to a toolbox talk in smaller groups about fall hazards. Brochures regarding fall protection were distributed. A Safety Stand-Down is a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety. This year’s Stand-Down focuses on “Fall Hazards” and reinforcing the importance of “Fall Prevention”. CST will receive a Certificate of Participation signed by Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez following the Stand-Down.

Tim Owens, Ricky Payne, Joey Harrison and Michelle Lazalier-Jones served on the committee with Sandy to develop the procedure for tracking these overweight tanks throughout the shop to insure everyone’s safety. The Winchester team thanks Sandy for his attention to safety of not only himself but for others.
