I got asked to attend a 10-Hour O.S.H.A. course in Sidney, Nebraska today. I headed down with Matt, our main safety coordinator for 21st Century Water Technologies. We went down to our 21st Century John Deere tractor store. This was an excellent opportunity for us to meet up with other safety representatives from the other 21st stores. Matt and I are the only ones to represent the "Water" side of the business, everyone else was representing one of the other 15 "Tractor" stores. 21st Century reaches into Colorado and we have stores all over Western Nebraska with the purchase of several new stores in the past couple of years. I am very excited to be a part of a growing, technically advanced agricultural organization. I am very thankful for my job!
This is a two day course which will help us prepare for our quarterly regional safety meeting on November 20th, 2014. All the North region stores will send their two safety representatives to our place this time for an inspection. They rotate locations throughout the year so that everyone can get a fresh perspective and see how other stores do certain things. This is a very helpful approach as questions arise constantly when it comes to the ever changing world of safety regulations.
