Workplace Safety is Priority One at General Parts Group
By Gary Shermann, CFSP – President, General Parts Group
At General Parts Group, safety is not just our number one priority, it is paramount in everything we do. Our employees are the cornerstone of our company and without them, we cannot meet our customer’s expectations as to how we will conduct any work we do at their business or establishment. Every person, no matter what position they are in, contributes to their own overall safety as well as those around them when on the job.
Creating A Safe Workplace
What does it mean to work safely? In the safety world, it means that at the end of the day, everyone returns home in one piece or better, but is that enough? Being safe is more than exercising caution when things get risky, it is about being ready for any possibility. Safety is not about luck. It’s about specific, intentional actions that avoid a potentially harmful situation.
New Safety Initiatives for 2020
Going forward into 2020, the safety culture of the General Parts Group will see many improvements. We have created a new position of Safety Coordinator and are pleased to welcome Madeline Meacham to our team.
