What makes a safe workplace? People. And what makes people safe? Ask Keith!
Every month, we recognize our safest workers with our Safety Champion Bonus payout, and every month our teammates don’t disappoint in teaching us so much about what it takes to keep a workplace operating safely. This month, we’re proud to acknowledge Keith Smith, a representative of the TempForce team who’s impressed us time and time again, most recently at Parker-Velcon.
Anyone would be happy to share the floor with a teammate who is so concerned with keeping their workplace protected and taking care of his teammates and his work duties. Clayton James of Parker says “He is one of our best temps, safety-conscious with a great attitude.”
