4th Materis Safety Day

 

Last March 18, 2014, we held our 4th Materis Safety Day in our Bagong Ilog plant and office. The event was formally opened by Plant Supervisor Timothy Lamoste followed by introductory remarks from Managing Director Christophe Lejeune and a video message by Materis Charman Oliver Legraine. Plant Manager Jayson Ramirez presented safety results for 2013 and safety targets for 2014. After, a series of video-viewing showed best safety practices by 4 companies within the Materis group and dialogue about safety issues within Materis. Then, employees played a game formatted like the Amazing Race wherein six groups of 8 members had to properly audit four stations’ safety - the sales and marketing office, our liquid line, two trucks and the technical storage room. Collated data gathered from this game will be used to improve safety in our facility. A surprise fire drill was conducted with employees evacuating the plant and office in just 1minute and 42 seconds. Fire safety rationale and protocol were explained and demonstrated by Inspector Herminilgido G. Cataluna, Jr., BFP. During the forums, we conclusively state that acting together towards a culture of safety is a continuous effort that requires every employee's contribution. This is an affirmation of our social thrust to care for our employees.
