Yazoo Beats the Heat and Celebrates Safety Success

Yazoo Annual Safety Picnic 2024

A nice summer breeze greeted employees after days of sweltering heat, setting the perfect stage for Yazoo Mills’ second annual company safety picnic! Everyone got tucked into a delicious catered spread by Hughes Meats, complete with refreshing drinks and delightful desserts. It was a day (or afternoon) filled with fun, food, and celebrating another year of success at Yazoo Mills!

This event truly showcased the strong bonds and camaraderie that define Yazoo Mills. As a cherished tradition in our 120+ year history, the picnic sets the stage for a fun and productive summer. It’s a time to celebrate our team’s hard work and dedication while building lasting memories and strengthening the relationships that make Yazoo Mills special.

Safety First, Fun Follows!

We were thrilled to recognize some impressive safety achievements. 32 employees recently completed OSHA 10 General Industry Training, and 30 finished basic Industrial Ergonomics Training. These efforts, combined with everyone’s commitment to safety, led to significant improvements:

Looking ahead, we’re excited to reach even higher levels of excellence in safety!

Festivities & Appreciation

The fun wasn’t forgotten – the festivities included a raffle with generous gift cards and prizes. Everyone received a custom safety t-shirt, safety glasses, and an introduction to our all-new, ultra-comfortable safety shoe program.

A heartfelt thank you to all our employees for their unwavering commitment to quality, dedication, reliability, and fostering a safety-first culture. Together, we’ll continue to build on our achievements and reach even greater heights!
