Safety in the workplace should always be top of mind and an ever-evolving practice. As companies continue to invest in the latest technology with more safety advancements, employee-focused training programs are essential. At Yazoo, we reinvest in our equipment and offer diverse programs that continue to be invaluable for the safety of our people. 

Recently, we invited Kelly Miller from Safety ACE LLC to conduct two Saturday morning sessions at our New Oxford facility for 29 enthusiastic team members. Each employee followed Ms. Miller as she demonstrated the proper techniques and industry-specific situations to earn their certifications in First Aid, CPR, AED & Bloodborne Pathogen. This class was a fun, engaging, and highly-educational experience for everyone which you will see in the photos below.

Yazoo remains committed to building a more robust safety culture. Which begins on an employee’s first day, we instill the importance of safety in every aspect of the job through awareness programs, monthly safety talks, on-site training, and more. Our mission is to ensure a safer work environment for all team members and maintain greater efficiency in manufacturing high-quality paper tubes and cores.

Here at Yazoo, we are constantly looking at diverse ways to train our employees when it comes to safety training. Safety training has always been in place at Yazoo and continues to remain of high importance to all of our employees.

Recently, Yazoo met with Tony Samento of Samento Industrial Training Systems, Inc. to learn more about workplace safety, how to better educate employees with safety training, and lists of topics to discuss with employees throughout the year.  Every third Wednesday of each month, Yazoo supervisors meet with their department employees for one-on-one safety talks.  Each supervisor picks a department topic to discuss with their group as well as an in-home safety topic.

The one-on-one safety talks are to help raise more safety awareness at home as well as work.  The safety talks have been extremely beneficial for Yazoo employees as they are constantly learning more safety tips and what to do if a safety issue arises.  Yazoo will continue to meet with Samento Industrial Training Systems, Inc. quarterly to discuss and review the safety talks and training.
