Safety Topic of the Month - Bloodborne Pathogens

A bloodborne pathogen is caused by germs that can cause long lasting infection and disease in humans.  The people at greatest risk would be those most likely to come in contact with it on a regular basis.  The list below bears repeating.  See who is number 4 on the list?

· Health Care Workers

· Police Officers

· Fire & Rescue Personnel

· Custodians/Janitors

· Waste Handlers

· Craftsman

Please pay extra attention during Safety Training this month.  Knowing the potential hazard, and proper cleaning procedures will keep you safe when around blood or other bodily fluids.

Brooke Ortiz is our Employee of the Month

     Congratulations goes out to Brooke Ortiz on winning the Employee of the Month award for July.   Brooke is based in our NWA office in Springdale, and works full time as an office assistant/building floater.

     Ramona Meeker, her Area Supervisor says, “Brooke is a good person who is a real team player.  She is hard working, dependable, loyal, and a really quick learner”.   Ramona goes on to say, “the traits Brooke exhibits in who she is and how she does her job are noticed by a lot of folks.  Every customer’s building she works in wants to keep her.  We are lucky to have Brooke on our team, and I hope to keep her here for a long time”.

Safety Topic of the Month - Hot Weather Safety

She’s back……...It’s that time of the year when things really start to heat up.  Please remember to heed these simple tips to keep you safe in the heat of summer.

* Drink plenty of water throughout the day whether you are thirsty or not.

* Wear lightweight, light colored and loose fitting clothing.

* Avoid caffeine as much as possible, heavy meals and alcohol whenever possible as well.

            * Stay out of the sun when you can, and always remember to use sunscreen.

Now go on out there and enjoy this muggy Arkansas summer!

Employee of the Month goes to the Walker/Fields Team

    The Employee of the Month goes out to a Southside Floater team, Marva Walker and Tremaine Fields.  They work together covering for folks that are on vacation or who are out sick.  It’s a pretty important job at DOW, holding down the fort when the regular cleaner is out.  You need good people we can count on to fill their shoes, and this duo has what it takes!

    Their Area Supervisor, Tony Gupton, says this about Marva and Tremaine.  “They both are reliable, trustworthy, and are good cleaners, everything you need in a good floater crew”.  Tony goes on to say,  “I am fortunate to have them on my team”. 

    Thank you both for all your hard work.  It’s very much appreciated!

     Congratulations go out to Jim Dampier, our 2nd Quarter Janus Award winner.  Jim has been working out of the Hot Springs Area as our Floor Tech since 2009.  Andrew Klich, Hot Springs Area Manager, has this to say about him. “Jim has always been my go to person here in Hot Springs, for everything from carpet cleaning, stripping and waxing, to vehicle maintenance. He always puts 110% into everything he does, and is always available to work any special project that we have here.”

     All the people over here in the Hot Springs office, would like to say, “Thank you Jim Dampier, for all you do for us. Keep up that good work, you are deeply appreciated.”
