RAK #5 Week 5: ICI employees delivered 214 bags for Backpacks with Kids to 17 local area schools. A little about BfK: Backpacks for Kids was developed to address the need for food for children identified as being homeless. Children identified as being homeless are defined as children who are living in overcrowded housing, staying with family or friends, staying in hotels/shelters, or sleeping in vehicles. These children are served breakfast and lunch while attending school during the week, but because of their living situation they do not have adequate food over the weekends. Backpacks are filled with "kid-friendly" foods such as cereal, granola/yogurt bars, fruit cups, applesauce, pudding, canned dinners, peanut butter, jelly and bread. Backpacks are delivered to the schools on Friday or the last day of each school week. The school distributes them to children in need and the children return the backpacks to the school the following week to be refilled. Community Action works together with the schools to determine who is in need of the backpacks. Food and financial donations are accepted for this program. http://www.cap7.com/Backpacks%20for%20Kids.html #ici50for50 #ici50years #cheersto50years #RAK

Safety

OUR PRIORITY

Here at ICI our highest priority is to protect our most valuable resources, our employees. It is our goal to provide every employee with a safe, healthy and productive work place with safety at the forefront of every decision we make. ICI believes safety is everyone’s responsibility; every member of our team is tasked with taking personal ownership of their own safety and the safety of others.

ICI has put safety policies and procedures in place, while implementing proven safety strategies, in order to achieve our goal of zero incidents. Our philosophy is to recognize the positive, safe actions of our employees to affect changes that promote safe behavior. This along with coaching, modeling, and consistent intervention assures our employees go home safe and healthy at the end of each day.

CARDINAL RULES OF SAFETY

Recently ICI established its Cardinal Rules of Safety. These rules focus on the most common OSHA violations in construction. They are designed to raise awareness of day to day behaviors that may lead to injuries. We want our employees to think of their safety before each and every action they perform. These rules reinforce our expectation that every employee make the safe choice when met with these challenges and plan safety into each decision, task, and project we face.

Good Catch Program

The Good Catch Program is ICI’s new near miss program designed to encourage reporting of hazards before an injury occurs. An effective near miss program aids in the prevention of injuries. By definition a near miss is anything that has the potential to cause injury, illness or property damage. By pairing this program with our Safety Rewards Program, employees are encouraged to report all near misses as well as safe behavior. In doing so, employees earn points to use towards items from ICI. We want to encourage safe, positive behaviors and reward those that assist in the process of reaching our goal of zero incidents.

SAFETY AUDITS

ICI strongly believes that in order to achieve our goal of zero incidents we must be proactive with our safety efforts. Our safety audits are a big part of our success. The audit process is an internal evaluation of ICI’s site safety management system and processes through inspections, interviews and documentation. Two to three person teams, of various positions inside the company, conduct these audits twice monthly to identify and correct unsafe equipment, conditions, processes, and employee work practices. Safety audits are conducted primarily to provide the safest work environment for our employees.

S.T.E.P.S.

Striving Towards Excellence and Professionalism in Safety is a corporate wide safety initiative designed to develop, implement, champion and sustain a program that will meet annual safety performance goals. This program focuses on five major components:

  1. Management commitment and involvement.
  2. Train on all applicable subjects contained within our corporate safety and health program.
  3. Develop and implement an accountability program to generate results.
  4. Implement loss prevention best practices throughout the corporation.
  5. Audit our company for alignment with STEPS objectives and communicate results.

SAFETY COMMITTEE

The mission of the ICI Health and Safety Committee is to develop and promote a healthy and safe work environment for all employees through the involvement of all ICI employees and craft personnel. Comprised of a management representative, a facilitator/safety professional, and craft representatives, the committee draws experiences and points of view from its broad-based, multidisciplinary team.

The committee accomplishes its mission through activities such as bi-monthly jobsite safety audits and reviewing incident reports while recommending corrective actions. The committee’s activities strongly support ICI’s efforts to continuously improve its safety program.
