Castings is dedicated to the WELL-BEING of it's employees. On-the-job
safety, wellness contests and company events highlight our commitment
to maintaining a healthy mind, body and family.
On-the-job safety is priority one with the regular
safety training seminars, yearly hearing tests and a weekly safety
scratch card contest to reward continuing safe practices in and
around our plant. The scratch cards can be exchanged for valuable
gifts like toaster ovens and tool kits. See the bottom right photo for an example of one employee's recent winnings for using safe practices over time. Once a year a winning
participant can select one of 30 sealed bags holding a cash reward
up to $10,000. Last year one employee walked away with $800.
Wellness contests reinforce the need for weight
control and cessation of smoking to reduce the risk of heart
attacks, strokes, and diabetes. Over the last three years employees
have lost a combined total of 3,000 pounds and have given up
smoking to the benefit of their pocketbook and family.
Company picnics and holiday parties reinforce
the joy of the season with friends, family and peers. The annual
Christmas Party brings great food and a present exchange together
under one roof. Santa often visits to reward those "good
boys and girls" from the foundry. The annual softball game
at the summer picnic pits the various departments against the
best the administration can put together.
