3M-Fairmont puts focus on health, safety
Friday, August 17, 2018
FAIRMONT — Safety is important in any business, but the 3M plant in Fairmont took the well-being of its employees to a new level on Tuesday when it closed down production to hold a Safety Day.
The event split the plant’s 150 employees into small groups that could then cycle through stations dealing with health and safety issues at the worksite and when they are not at work.
“This is the first time in anybody’s memory that our plant has done this, spent an entire day on health and safety,” said Wendy Voss, human resources manager at 3M-Fairmont. She estimated at least six months was spent planning the event.
