Anaheim Celebrates 8 Years of Safety

The staff at Mohawk’s Anaheim, California warehouse doesn’t joke around when it comes to their BINGO game.

That’s because numbers are only pulled on days when no safety accidents or incidents have taken place and no safety procedures have been violated. When someone wins the game, their manager buys them lunch, and it starts over again.

It may not seem like much, but Warehouse Manager Connie Diaz said she thinks it’s been part of helping her team reach 8 years of no accidents or incidents.

“I’m always telling them to think first before they do,” Connie said. “I always mention to them that Mohawk wants to make sure they go home the same way they arrived and that any safety accidents can be life changing,”

In addition to safety BINGO, she said the following practices have helped her site stay safe over the years:
  • Always keep the workspace clean.
  • Conduct weekly safety meetings with the entire staff.
  • Check in with your team every day, and make safety part of a daily conversation.
  • Make sure to discuss new tasks introduced to the team, and go over the safety procedures required for that task.
“Our commitment to safety in the Western Region takes a back seat to no other process, policy and or procedure. We make it a point to make sure our team members understand that we genuinely care about their wellbeing,” Connie said. “Among all the other things we do, building our relationship with our team members is an important factor in maintaining our excellent safety record. The better our relationship, the more our team members feel comfortable with being honest with us with their concerns about anything within our operation, especially safety.”

Please join us in congratulating the Anaheim Warehouse for their commitment to safety.
