Gary Blackburn wins 4th Qtr Janus Award

Congratulations to Gary Blackburn, DOW's 4th Quarter Janus Award winner!   For those of you who may not know, DOW’s Springdale branch has found a new home and Gary played a very important role in making this move a seamless transition.

NWA Area Manager, Ramona Meeker, had this to say, “Gary has gone the extra mile to make our new facility a place everyone can be proud to work at.  He’s done it all, from placing toilets, to hanging new doors, to putting in counter tops and sinks, and a huge list of other tasks.  His hard work and caring attitude has helped to make our new building awesome!  Thank you, Gary for all you do on a daily basis”.

Larry Tanner, Director of Operations added this, “I am very happy to have Gary as part of the DOW Team”!

Safety Topic of the Month - HAZCOM/SDS

     OSHA/Hazcom is defined as the Right-to-Know standard established to improve the safety of all workers who must handle hazardous materials in the course of their jobs. SDS is the acronym for Safety Data Sheets. These documents must be available to you as a DOW employee and to our Customers at all times.   

      In our line of work, we use chemicals every day, very safely in most cases. If used negligently though, it can be another story. To keep yourself and others safe, follow these simple basic rules when using all chemical products at DOW Building Services:

     Read all labels and use products only as directed.

            · Always protect your hands and eyes when pouring liquids or powders.

            · When diluting products, mix only with water.

            · Never mix two products together.

            · Never use an unlabeled container.

            · Never inhale the contents of a container to determine its contents

            · Never ingest any products, no matter what.

            · Never puncture or collapse an aerosol can.

            · Always wash hands after using a chemical product.
