Nazareth Pallet Company Annual Safety Day, bigger and better than ever

When we say that safety is important to us, we mean it. In fact, safety is such a critical part of our business that we designated an annual safety day here at Nazareth Pallet Company to ensure it’s part of our culture.

Our goal is that everyone lives and breathes safety, on and off the job.

You may be thinking that an annual safety day is the perfect recipe for boredom. Well, we respectfully disagree! The Nazareth Pallet Company Annual Safety Day is jam-packed with great food, great company, great presentations and a few local celebrities (some are furry and have four legs!)

It’s yummy. It’s fun. It’s informative. That’s how we like to talk safety at Nazareth Pallet Company.

Here are some highlights from our jam-packed safety day!

Calling all blood donors.

It’s not mandatory, but it’s something we proudly incorporate into our annual safety day. Many of our awesome employees donate blood on safety day to help support the Miller-Keystone Blood Center mission.

Did someone say BBQ?

When it comes to food, we go all out. This year’s catering was provided by Dickey’s BBQ and it was good! So good that many made it a point to get seconds, and thirds. Thanks to our office staff for manning the buffet line – these guys and gals worked at lightning speed!

Welcome, local celebrities.

We had lot’s of great guests attend and speak at our annual safety day including Northampton County EMS, Northampton Borough Mayor, Northampton Area Chamber of Commerce, The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Ryan Gilroy of Gilroy Family Chiropractic, our healthcare administrator and the Northampton Borough K-9 Police!

Each of our guests delivered a great presentation, but the highlight of the day was definitely Officer Buchanan and his partner, Vito, from the Northampton Borough Police Department who stole the show with a narcotics detection demo and a bite demo. One word. WOW!

Some important updates, and a fun skit on stress management.

We had to break up the fun and games with a little serious talk, but even when we’re serious, we still make it fun. George Frack, President of Nazareth Pallet Company, highlighted some accomplishments and his vision for the company, Wendy Keim, Safety Manager, spoke about the safety culture at Nazareth Pallet Company, and Christine Martini, HR Manager, discussed her role and some positive changes she has in the works.

And of course, the day wouldn’t be complete without a theatrical performance by Ken Laga, Sales Accounts Executive, and Wendy Keim, Safety Manager in their informative skit on how to handle the stress of daily home life at work. These two may have a shot at Hollywood!
