At MEM, we are Safety Fanatics. No matter which department they work in – whether it’s Underwriting, Claims, IT or something else – our employees’ common goal is to keep more people safe at work. While safety is ingrained in our day-to-day work, our Safety Fanatics spend a week each year dedicated to reflecting on and celebrating workplace safety. We recently wrapped up our WorkSAFE Week activities for 2019.
The week began somberly as our employees took a moment of silence to remember policyholders’ employees fatally injured in the past year. Later in the week, employees from all over the state gathered for a celebration. Several employees received service recognition awards, and we heard from special guest speaker John O’Leary. Later, we had some fun with a casino game fundraiser benefiting Kids’ Chance of Missouri.
Having a special safety week is a great way for organizations to build a safety culture in their workplace. Ready to plan your own safety celebration? Check out our Safety Week Starter Kit.
