Jim Schaffer Appointed Loftin Equipment Co. Risk Manager
As part of our on-going effort to improve safety we are actively seeking 3 to 4 volunteers to join safety committees in each branch. Anyone who is interested in shaping the safety program is encouraged to participate. Members from ALL departments are encouraged to participate and will receive OSHA 10 along with OSHA 30 training. Members will also be making key recommendations when it comes to things like PPE selection, evacuation planning, job site safety inspections, safety program content, and rewards. Space is limited so if you’re interested please let your manager know or reach out to Jim Schaffer firstname.lastname@example.org.
To make the role of Risk Manager successful, it begins by listening to each of you while working with the safety committees to continuously improve upon our work place safety programs and equipment. The goal is to help everyone stay as healthy as the first day you joined this great team by providing you with the equipment and training you need to be successful. Please reach out to Jim any time if you have concerns or recommendations, together I’m sure we can find a solution.
In an effort to streamline the way we Order, Store, and Distribute PPE all branches will be receiving Safety Centers. The centers “Safety Cabinets” will be inventoried monthly and restocked automatically by a third party. Safety Committee members and managers will issue these items as needed to ensure we always have the equipment we need to work safely.
Much more to come in the following weeks and months as we continue to work together and take steps to ensure everyone is moving toward a safer work environment!
New Kubota Engines Gain Early Praise
Kubota Engine America Corp.'s (KEA's) presence in the gas compression industry has earned the company favorable reputation among its distributors and end users.
That's why KEA turned to those same people when it announced the launch of its new spark-ignited natural gas engines last year. The company wanted to ensure its latest offerings were suitable for those who would use them the most.
"I am extremely excited about the new engines, "said Philip Juneau, regional sales manager, KEA. "I have seen these engines work for many years in a variety of diesel applications. I am very pleased Kubota decided to invest resources in developing such a premium product for this industry."
The new family of KEA dual-fuel natural gas engines - models WG2503 and WG3800 - has a similar structure to the company's diesel counterparts. The engines' flexibility and multiple fuel types (natural gas and liquid propane) allow them to be used in many industrial applications.
Loftin Equipment Co. would like to wish you and your family a happy and safe Independence Day. As we celebrate our liberty and freedoms, we remember and support those who protect them. Thank you to the brave men and women that serve our country.
