Eugen E. Oana
Senior EHS Manager
Valvoline Inc.
Hudson, OH

“Eugen initiated an effort to design, create and implement new PPE for team members across nearly 300 Valvoline Instant Oil Change service centers. Eugen trended the root causes of injuries and near hits. One trend was an annual average of five facial cuts and tooth fractures from slipped wrenches when team members performed bottom-side services. Eugen took personal responsibility for improving processes and PPE to prevent these injuries. He solicited input from team members to design a bump cap and faceguard that would be comfortable, ‘stylish’ and non-offensive to our guests. Eugen then worked with equipment providers to design and manufacture the preferred option.”
