Turning the Corner in Asia

Looks like China and South Korea have turned the corner on NEW cases of the virus. That's what Social Distancing will do for us, too. Let's all get with the program.

Latest Worldwide Stats

This chart is the top 10, of 204, countries listed in the world by ranking of total infections. You can click this slide photo to be taken to the full list on the web. While it's not appealing to be #1 on this list, other columns show that our stats are certainly not as bad as some, when you consider our population compared to others.

Social Distancing

This is not some "pie in the sky" theory! This really works! Look at the results in China and South Korea. But EVERYONE has to participate. Beach goers bring the virus BACK to the folks that are fighting in the trenches and ruin everything we're trying to do. Get with the program, folks!

There's Hope!

We're in this together isn't just a slogan... it's a fact! We'll get through it but we've all got to do our part. Have Faith, and remember that "We're in this Together".

Mandatory Work Place Safety Training

Workplace Safety isn't just a couple of idle, empty, words. It's the LAW! Ever heard of OSHA? If you haven't, you've been living under a rock in the forest somewhere!

Every company is required to post the "OSHA Labor Law Poster" in a "prominent" location in the facility. In fact, if you read the "fine print", it's best to cover your .... by purchasing multiple copies of the poster and displaying them in numerous locations throughout the facility. And don't forget the office! These posters state the general requirements of worker safety, but they also contain Federal and State Minimum Wage Values. And there are numerous third party vendors from whom these posters are available. The posters are totally laminated and large enough for anyone to read. It's a great... "General Information Poster". But there are additional requirements, as well as "valuable" information that needs to be shared with all employees.

So to keep things "on track", A.R.&E. formed a Safety Committee to assess our facility on a "continuing basis". The committee is made up of supervisors and technicians who work the floor every day. It's their job to watch for and note any safety concerns, and bring them to the attention of management in an appropriate timeframe. Management and the committee discuss the needs and the appropriate action to be taken to correct the issue.

A monthly Workplace Safety meeting is held with all employees. This meeting is MANDATORY and each employee is required to "sign" an attendance form which is maintained in the administrative office. At this meeting, the safety committee can discuss any changes that have been made, or that need to be changed, for the benefit of all. This meeting is attended on a "regular" basis by a "Risk Assessment Manager" of the company's business insurance carrier. A Risk Assessment agent's primary goal at the insurance company is to "lower" the risk and decrease any liability of the insurance company AND Apparatus Repair & Engineering, Inc. The benefits available from our Risk Assessment Manager have been phenomenal. They have been able to supply our employees with numerous white papers on topics specific to our type of work, and give seminars on those topics.
