  • Six Ways To Make Safety A Priority

    Feb 20, 2018 07:58 AM

     

    Two file cabinets, one red, the other yellow, stand along an open wall in J. R. Simplot’s office in Fresno, Calif. They are a silent testament to Paul Simpson’s ever-vigilant attention to details, both large and small, that play a role in the company’s emergency action plans.

    Simpson, the company’s director of retailer operations in California, chose the colors to give employees a visual reminder or clue to the cabinets’ contents. The red file cabinet holds a variety of safety data sheets. The yellow one holds documents on Simplot environmental, health, safety and security policies and procedures.
