June is National Safety Month – Part II

We are continuing our Safety by Choice, Not by Chance series. 

This week we are introducing you to Jennifer Scott. Jennifer began working at the Hager Distribution Center in Montgomery, Alabama as a temporary employee. In December of 2014 we were lucky to have her join us full time. As the administration assistant Jennifer wears many hats, from completing paperwork, processing orders, shipping small parcels and shipping LTL. She does whatever it takes to get the job done.

Jennifer shares why she participates in Safety by Choice, not by Chance:

“I choose to work in a safe manner by always being aware of my surroundings, understanding my limitations and asking for assistance when needed. This is important to me because I am blessed with a loving family and wonderful friends.” 

There are some jobs we think are inherently dangerous. Remember the photo of the steel workers having lunch on a steel beam high above the ground? Now steel workers are required to wear fall protection as safety precautions.

Working in an office can have dangers also. Trip hazards or lifting a 50 lb. case of copy paper incorrectly (or at all) as examples. We are glad to have Jennifer on board and appreciate she makes safety a choice!
