Safety Topic of the Month - Safe Driving

DOW’s employees are our most valuable asset.  That’s why our Safety Topic of the Month is directed at you. 

We’ve all been taught how to drive safely.  But unfortunately, we get a little laxed with some of the basics,  like yielding, tailgating, and being a patient and courteous driver.  Trust me, I know how difficult it is to follow the rules of road etiquette, but it’s always in our best interest to stay cool, calm, and collected.

There are also the most important rules of all which everyone wants to break - Texting while driving and not wearing a seat belt.  These are not an option, yet more and more you see people breaking the law.  Please don’t let one of them be you……...When driving on the job, you are a moving billboard for DOW Building Services.  Always be courteous and protect your reputation and the reputation of the company you work for.  And while you’re at it, try to follow the rules and stay safe!

Employee of the Month is Delores Jones

Meet Delores Jones who works for Dow at J.W. Nutt Co. in North Little Rock.  We’re very happy to say that she has been with us for almost 8 years!  Delores is a true gem.  According to her Supervisor, Tonia Harvey, “Ms. Delores is very dependable and she is an excellent cleaner.  Her building always looks top-notch and she gets 6’s always on her JSR’s”.  Even her closet is a “6” and that’s as good as it gets. 

Tonia goes on to say, “Ms. Delores is always at work unless she’s got scheduled vacation (which she schedules way in advance).  You can count on her to show up and always do a great job, and I never worry about her building because I know Ms. Delores will always give it her best!” 

Congratulations, Delores on a job well done!

Safety Topic of the Month - Severe Weather

     Our Safety Topic of the Month is guess what….Severe Weather!  Spring has definitely sprung in Arkansas, the green pollen haze is everywhere, and to top it off, we are blessed to live right smack in the middle of “tornado alley”!

     We should all be extremely grateful for the early warnings that modern technology has given us, we just need to take them more seriously when they occur.  Paying attention and heeding the warnings go a long way in keeping us safe.   It can literally be the difference between life and death.  In addition, if you’re ever  on the job when a storm approaches, DO NOT leave the building and attempt to out run the storm.  Follow the Building’s instructions for severe weather protection and go to the nearest “safe room” or an interior room that the Customer designates.

     Being prepared, and following all precautions are keys to staying safe during severe weather.  After all, we live in Arkansas and the weather changes all the time!

April's Employee of the Month is Kaylee Nelson

Congratulations goes out to Kaylee Nelson, our April Employee of the Month.  Kaylee has been with DOW since December, 2015 and works for us at the Baxter Healthcare facility in Mountain Home.

Bill Porterfield, Site Manager at Baxter says “Kaylee is a hard worker and a fast learner. She performs various duties at the Baxter facility and any job she is given, she gives it 100%.  In addition to her job at DOW on the 2nd shift, Kaylee is a full-time college student during the day”.  

Bill goes on to say, “ Kaylee always has a cheerful attitude and a smile on her face”.  Thank you Kaylee for being a vital part of the DOW team in Mountain Home!

Health Hero goes to Krenessa Vincent

Krenessa “Smiley”  Vincent is our quarterly Health Hero at Drew Memorial Hospital in Monticello.   “Smiley” started working for DOW at Drew in July of last year.  She works in the O.R. Department, and everyone speaks highly of her.

Our Director of Environmental Services, Samantha Kilgore has this to say about Krenessa.  “Since being here, she has been very receptive and exceptional!  Her ability to smile throughout the day makes things run very smoothly”.  Sam goes on to say, “She has never complained about anything and is always eager to help.  I could go on and on about her positive character.  Thank you, Smiley, for the great job you do.  We really appreciate you”!
