Strong safety performance helps benefit Salvation Army's Toy Town program
Alcoa Warrick Operations donated $5,000 worth of toys to the Salvation Army’s Toy Town program, the result of a successful safety challenge conducted by employees at the facility east of Newburgh.
Alcoa Warrick Operations, which has received recognition for its strong safety performance, has numerous methods to document and eliminate risks that could threaten someone’s safety.
In November, Alcoa agreed to provide up to $5,000 to benefit the Salvation Army’s Toy Town, based on the number of Pre-Job Reviews conducted at the sprawling manufacturing facility.
Pre-Jobs are checklists used before a task that helps employees proactively recognize hazards.
Alcoa contributed $5 for 1,000 completed Pre-Job Safety Reviews.
Employees exceeded their goal and obtained the maximum $5,000 donation for the Salvation Army’s program. In addition to the Pre-Job Challenge, Alcoa Warrick Operations also made an earlier cash contribution toward the Salvation Army’s programs in the community.
On Dec. 14, members of Warrick Operation’s Safety & Health Steering Committee used these funds at Target to buy merchandise for the Toy Town program, bringing a brighter Christmas to underprivileged children across the community.
The Plant Safety and Health Steering Committee has existed as a joint committee between Alcoa and the United Steelworkers of America Local 104 since the first metal was poured at Warrick in 1960.
The group is responsible for addressing safety issues across the plant and leading initiatives to provide continuous improvement to the health and safety of the Warrick Operations employees.
