The Rogers Corp. R&D Safety Committee hosted a successful 2nd annual Safety Stand Down Day in Rogers, CT, on June 7, 2017. Approximately 85 employees from R&D, the Innovation Center, Marketing, and Human Resources participated.
We were pleased to host presentations by Sergeant Eric Haglund of the Connecticut State Police, Dept. of Emergency Services, and UCONN Associate Clinical Professor of Pharmacy, Michael Nailor.
The day’s events also included a laboratory safety game, which addressed hazard identification and correct procedures for inspections, as well as a safety video regarding the indicators that lead to workplace accidents. Chuck Weatherbee, EHS Engineer at Rogers, presented a hierarchy of protection and reviewed the Rogers Corp. Chemical Hygiene Plan.
Also available was an optional blood pressure screening provided by the nursing staff of Day Kimball Hospital, and an interactive stress management presentation by Brad and Pam Thompson of Wellness Within. A delicious lunch was provided by the Golden Lamb Buttery.
Thank you to all who participated.
