Logistics Manager/Safety Pillar Leader
I had suffered with a bad lower back for years. Bi-monthly trips to the Chiropractor and 8 to 12 aspirin per day were routine. The heavy lifting, pushing, pulling, bending, and twisting were torture. It was hard to focus on my work. PIP provided a stretching routine for me. Shortly thereafter, my trips to the Chiropractor became bi-annual and I no longer take aspirin.
My trip to the doctor’s office for my 50 year checkup revealed that I had a major cholesterol problem. Medication was in order. PIP had me make slight changes to my eating habits. Results? Bad cholesterol went way down, good cholesterol went up, and I lost 15 pounds to boot!
It’s not just me. As a PLUS observer I have noticed people around me taking health and safety more seriously. Since PIP came to the mill we have continuously improved our safety record. People have become health conscience, lost weight, been injury free, sick days are uncommon, and fewer missed days of work. PIP is a major reason why.”
