Safest in the Industry

first_imgCOLUMBIA FALLS — There was plenty for SmartLam president and general manager Casey Malmquist to be proud of as he stood in front of his employees at the mill in the middle of the afternoon.They’d taken a break from their shift duties creating cross-laminated timber to sit together and be recognized — by their boss, and also by the American Plywood Association — for having built the safest work environment of all companies in the industry with three or fewer member mills.The Safest Company 2017 Award means SmartLam has the best track record for safety out of the roughly 90 eligible mills in the category, according to APA Director of Quality Services Division Steve Zylkowski.It’s an important award, he said, because it was born out of a need to make the entire wood-products industry safer. There were already awards for the best products and services, but there needed to be a focus on the workers as well as what they built.“Thirty-five years ago, our industry said we needed to focus on safety,” Zylkowski said during the award presentation at SmartLam last week. “It was not uncommon in a plywood mill for people to lose a finger or an arm or get crushed.”The APA and other industry leaders created safety programs and awards to highlight the companies doing right by their workers, to call out good behavior when they saw it.“That’s what you are— you’re a model for the rest of the industry,” Zylkowski told the SmartLam employees. “We want to celebrate the successes when they happen.”To determine the winners, the APA Safety and Health Awards use a calculation taking into consideration the number of health and safety incidents and their severity at a mill, as well as the time lost to injury or restricted work due to incidents. SmartLam had the best record overall, and Malmquist told his employees that the award is due to their continued hard work ensuring they keep themselves and their coworkers safe.The culture of watching out for one another at SmartLam is a big reason this award will hang on their wall, he said.“This is a significant recognition of what you have done,” Malmquist said. “Inherently, there is a lot that can go wrong, given the size and logistics of our product, and thankfully because of all your efforts, that hasn’t happened.” Malmquist also credited Scott Blair, SmartLam’s quality control manager and safety lead, with fostering a safer environment through programs and a focus on maintaining worker wellness. It’s an investment the company believes in; healthy employees are more productive.And productivity is more important at SmartLam than ever. The company is expanding from its 40,000-square-foot facility behind Western Building Center to a 140,000-square-foot former lumber mill, adding $15 million worth of new equipment. Malmquist said last week he expects to be in the new facility by the end of the year, with rounds of hiring after that.SmartLam is building the new co-op in Bozeman, and is providing cross-laminated timber for the flagship McDonald’s restaurant in Chicago. The company also provided the first hardwood CLT for an award-winning public sculpture called the “Conversation Plinth” in Indiana. There are also plans to open a SmartLam plant in Maine in 2020 or 2021.With so much happening and coming up, it’s important to stop and remember the importance of safety in the mills.“In the new plant, there will be four to five times the production capacity, which translates to the potential for worker accidents,” Malmquist said.Once they received the award, the SmartLam employees took a group photo, and then passed around the framed certificate. It was hoisted overhead for cheers several times, and there were certainly selfies.Malmquist said the company rewarded its employees in 2014 for a year without accidents with a jacket and a patch noting the accomplishment. As of last week, he wasn’t sure what the reward for the employees would be this year, but he was already brainstorming. He knew they deserved the recognition for making the right choices at the right time, which ends up making everyone at SmartLam look good.“It literally comes down to what you decide to do in that moment,” Malmquist said. “We’re extremely proud.” Email Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup.

By Loren Hardin-This is part two of a two-part series, about Eric, age 46, admitted to hospice with terminal cancer. In part one, “God is a Heart God”; Eric suggested that “Entertainers always present an image that they want to look like.” When I suggested that we all do, Eric replied, “But God is a heart God. Men look on the outside but God looks at the heart, on the inside. The mind can be fooled but not the heart.”Eric’s parents, Lawrence and Rindi are in their 80’s and are tough-minded country folk. Eric’s father, Lawrence, bragged about his wife, Rindi, “She can work like a man. When we built our house she climbed up the rafters like a man and helped put on the roof.”Lawrence was a Marine, a machine gunner, in the South Pacific, during World War II. He reflected, “You had to do what you had to do. When the war started I hated the Japanese, but by the time the war was over, I didn’t hate them anymore. They were just men like us.” Lawrence worked most of his life in brick factories before the age of automation; therefore he hand carried, wheel barrowed and stacked bricks. He concluded, “I wore out my knees”, which was evident as I watched him teeter across the front yard like a man on stilts.One afternoon, after visiting Eric, I encountered Lawrence and Rindi outside as I was leaving. They were reorganizing their garage. Rindi asked, “Do you notice any changes in Eric?” I asked Rindi the same question in return and she replied, “He’s eating, but he’s still losing weight.” Then Lawrence asked, “He’s in bad shape isn’t he?” When I agreed with his evaluation, Lawrence covered his face with his thick calloused right hand and stumbled backwards. I don’t know if his knees gave out or if he was overcome with emotion, or perhaps both. Rindi declared, “I’ll do anything I can for Eric.”We talked about how none of us are perfect, either as parents or as caregivers. There will always be something more we could have said or done. I shared the Bible passage, “love will cover a multitude of sins.” (I Peter 4:8) We talked about how, when it’s all said and done, the important thing is that the person knew that we loved them. Then Lawrence summed it up, “Love is the top dog, isn’t it?”The same is true in our relationship with God. Peter’s life is a testimony. After eating the “Last Supper” with his disciples, Jesus predicted, “All of you will be made to stumble because of Me tonight”. But Peter declared, “Even if all are made to stumble because of You, I will never be made to stumble. Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You.” (Matthew 26:31- 35) But that same night, as Peter watched the Jews beat and mock Jesus in the court yard, he denied even knowing Jesus; not just once, but three times. And on the third time, “When the rooster crowed, then the Lord turned and looked at Peter…Then Peter remembered the word of the Lord…So Peter went out and wept bitterly.”(Mark 14: 54-60)Can you imagine the guilt and shame that Peter felt that night! He’d denied the very One he swore that he would die for. But when Jesus arose from the grave and appeared to Peter He didn’t browbeat him; He didn’t point out how Peter had stumbled and failed; He didn’t even say, “I told you so!” Jesus simply asked Peter, not once but three times, once for each time Peter had denied him, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me? And Peter responded each time, “Lord you know I do”. Then Jesus exhorted Peter, “Then feed my sheep”. You see, Jesus doesn’t disqualify us when we fail; He simply exhorts us to “get back in the game”. You see, His love for us “covers a multitude of sins”.The Apostle Paul wrote: “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love… I am nothing… And now abide faith, hope, love, these three, but the greatest of these is love,” (1 Corinthians, chapter 13). Or in Lawrence’s words, “Love is the top dog.”Loren Hardin is a social worker with SOMC-Hospice and can be reached at (740) 357-6091 or at [email protected] You can order Loren’s book, “Straight Paths: Insights for living from those who have finished the course”, at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

UK: Local School Children Name New Workboat at E.ON’s Robin Rigg Wind Farm

first_imgThree children from Northside Primary School in Workington have today attended a naming ceremony for a new Alicat vessel which is due to be deployed for operations at E.ON’s Robin Rigg offshore wind farm.E.ON tasked local pupils from the school to draw a picture of the workboat and pick a name from a shortlist. The lucky winner was Kelsie Walker who named the vessel Solway Challenger and won book vouchers donated by the energy company. The three pupils who attended the official naming ceremony were Ellie Weston, Nathan Hanrahan and Dylan Frazer.Sally Shenton, Robin Rigg’s former site manager, officially named the Solway Challenger and local Minister’s Geoff Moore and Steve Axtell were also invited to bless the vessel ahead of its deployment.The 19-meter Solway Challenger was built in the UK by Alicat Workboats and is now ready to commence full-service. The bespoke vessel, which is capable of up to 30 knots, will be used for long-term operations and maintenance work at the offshore wind farm.Tim Morgan, Operations Manager at Robin Rigg, says: “Workboats such as the Solway Challenger are vital to ensure the smooth operation of off-shore wind farms, safeguarding the supply of electricity to thousands of homes across the UK.“It’s fantastic to get children from local schools involved in our projects, helping to raise awareness of wind farms and educate the next generation on the importance of renewable energy in reducing carbon emissions.”The Robin Rigg Wind Farm is located at the Prince of Wales Dock, Workington and features 60 turbines, providing enough electricity to power approximately 117,000 homes and offset around 230,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.[mappress]Press release, October 25, 20103; Image:Alicat Workboatslast_img read more

A good amount of white to prevent a “hot dogs slathered with mustard” or “UPS driver” look that the writer joked about in the article. Fowler laughing while mentioning that there’s a lot of white seems like a response to these type of jokes from the writer that must have been said to him. five boroughs, one City.
