Leading With Safety - Creatively Eliminating a Fall Hazard

Tim Strunk was recently recognized at Schnitzer for identifying and eliminating a potential fall hazard.

Tim had to open the catch door on one of the drop boxes in the building. He recognized that after opening the catch door, he would create a fall hazard. To eliminate the hazard, Tim secured a pipe clamp to the frame of the catch door which then acted as a guardrail while working near the open door.

The Leading with Safety Program recognizes Teammates not only for personal safety practices but more importantly, as a leader who addresses worksite safety issues. By working together and exhibiting safety leadership, we are able to provide a safe working environment for all.
