Irwin Industries adds awareness incentive component to 2016 Four Aces Safety Program

LONG BEACH – Long Beach, California based Irwin Industries, which is in the process of completely rebuilding the company’s in-house “Four Aces” Safety Program for a January 2017 launch, today announced a new Four Aces based safety recognition incentive for employees, which field supervisors can start using to enhance employee engagement with safety effective immediately.

Irwin Industries has commissioned special, limited edition ballcaps which feature the all-new Four Aces emblem. According to Environmental, Health and Safety Manager, Sly Williams, “These are very cool, high quality caps, which look very different from any other caps Irwin Industries has made in the past. Most importantly, only a very limited number of these ballcaps have been produced, and there are no plans to make more in the future. When they’re gone, they’re gone.”

The purpose of the new Four Aces based safety recognition incentive is to enhance employee engagement with safety and increase awareness of the refreshed Four Aces Safety Program as a whole. Irwin Industries CEO Ricardo Teamor called the safety recognition incentive one component of a much more comprehensive and critical program. “Irwin Industries’ Four Aces Safety Program is the cornerstone of our company’s safety culture,” said Teamor. “Because safety is first among our core values, we are continually reevaluating, revising and improving the program to ensure that our employees remain actively engaged and perpetually mindful of safety.”

How Irwin Industries’ new Four Aces based safety recognition incentive works:

• Each month, Irwin Industries Field Supervisors receive a new batch of “Ace of the Month” hard hat stickers to distribute to their crews. The stickers are handed out near the beginning of the month during a safety meeting at which the Field Supervisor discusses the current Ace of the Month with the employees.

• Over the course of the month, the Field Supervisor then personally approaches various members of the crew and asks them the following questions:
o Can you tell me what the Ace of the Month is?
o Can you tell me what the meaning of this Ace is?
o Can you explain to me how living this Ace makes our jobsite a safer place?

• Any employee who can provide a clear, concise and correct answer will receive a limited edition Four Aces ballcap.
Irwin Industries CEO Ricardo Teamor closed by saying, “I am personally very excited about this new Four Aces safety recognition incentive, and I think our employees will be too. At the end of the day, it’s all about keeping everyone at every jobsite safe and healthy.”
About Irwin Industries Four Aces Safety Program:
Irwin Industries’ Four Aces Safety Program has represented the cornerstone of the company’s Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) program since 2000. It is an ongoing educational, awareness, behavioral-based and action-focused program designed to create a positive and proactive safety culture, which is reliant on interactive employee involvement to achieve Irwin Industries’ EH*S commitment and reinforce the company’s value: “Safety is never compromised.”

The Four Aces are:

• Attitude – Ace of Hearts
Believing that it is truly possible to be injury free while maintaining a positive and proactive attitude towards safety.

• Awareness – Ace of Clubs
Remaining perceptive of the activities and environment around each individual jobsite employee at all times and not slipping into complacency.

• Action – Ace of Spades
Having a consistent bias for action, applied toward following procedures, assessing and eliminating hazards, and intervening to prevent incidents.

Adequately assessing and accepting the consequences of decisions and making those decisions in the best interest of the employees and the entire company.

The Ace of the Month for June is…
AWARENESS
Remaining perceptive of the activities and environment around you at all times, and not slipping into complacency, is key toward maintaining a heightened state of AWARENESS to identify those hidden hazards before they get you..

It gets to the "heart of the matter," based on the idea that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. How we approach each minute of every job ultimately determines how safe and successful we are.

Believing that it is possible to be injury free while maintaining a positive and proactive ATTITUDE toward safety is essential to accomplishing our goals while working and performing safely.

The diamond represents a gem of high quality and value, taking many years to develop under enormous external forces.

Accordingly, the Four Aces Diamond, ACCOUNTABILITY, is a highly regarded aspect of our character. Aligned with our personal integrity, this Ace focuses on how you conduct yourself when no one is looking.

Accepting personal responsibility and ownership to perform every job safely, all the time, amid conflicting pressures, is the core meaning of this Ace.

Adequately assessing and accepting the consequences of our decisions, and making those decisions in the best interest of the employees and entire organization, will ensure we remain true to our values.

The Irwin Industries Safety Ace of the Month for March, July and November, the Ace of Spades, is the most decorated Ace. It is the external manifestation of excellence and accomplishment. In line with this Ace, ACTION is the external manifestation of your character and attitude.

Through your actions you demonstrate who you are, what you believe in and what you value. It is how you are perceived by those around you and, most importantly, how you directly and indirectly influence others to work safely. Having a consistent bias for action applied toward following procedures, assessing and eliminating hazards and intervening to prevent incidents is at the core of this Ace.

Irwin Industries launches 2016 Four Aces Safety Program with a fresh, new look

LONG BEACH – Long Beach, California based Irwin Industries today announced the launch of the company’s 2016 “Four Aces” safety program.

The Irwin Industries Four Aces program has represented the cornerstone of the company’s Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) program since 2000. It is an ongoing educational, awareness, behavioral-based and action-focused program designed to create a positive and proactive safety culture which is reliant on interactive employee involvement to achieve the company’s EH&S commitment and reinforce the company’s value: “Safety is never compromised.” By focusing on one of the “Four Aces” each month, Irwin Industries safety professionals and project leadership engage with jobsite employees with daily and weekly interactions centered around the unique meaning behind each of the Four Aces:

• Attitude – Ace of Hearts
Believing that it is truly possible to be injury free while maintaining a positive and proactive attitude towards safety.
• Awareness – Ace of Clubs
Remaining perceptive of the activities and environment around each individual jobsite employee at all times and not slipping into complacency.
• Action – Ace of Spades
Having a consistent bias for action, applied toward following procedures, assessing and eliminating hazards, and intervening to prevent incidents.
• Accountability – Ace of Diamonds
Adequately assessing and accepting the consequences of decisions and making those decisions in the best interest of the employees and the entire company.

The Irwin Industries EH&S Manual contains Four Aces activity planners, tracking tables, codes of safe work practices, specific EH&S compliance policies, quizzes, “tool-of-the-month” training materials and other handouts. These resources are available to all supervision at all Irwin Industries jobsites. The program is further reinforced via jobsite banners, hard hat stickers, special giveaways for safe work recognition, Irwin Industries’ Safety Daily email newsletter / Twitter feed and other social media channels.

According to Irwin Industries CEO Ricardo Teamor, “Nothing is more important than the safety of our employees and others who share the jobsites we serve. The Four Aces program is a critical tool to help us accomplish that commitment.”

In addition to general program updates, Irwin Industries this year has also visually refreshed the program with a new logo for the program, along with specific emblems for each of the Four Aces. EH&S Manager Sly Williams said, “developing a striking new look this year has literally grabbed our employees attention and caused them to step back and refocus on our Four Aces. It is the first step in our ongoing process of refreshing, updating and improving the program to keep it fresh in the eyes of our employees.”
