EHS Coordinator
Valmont Coatings
Salina, KS

“When she came on board with the company, her facility was in the bottom quartile for leading safety metrics measured against division peers. Micah took a fresh approach to employee engagement, allowing opportunities for employees to feel ‘heard’ as the main driver. Through this seemingly simple approach, Micah was able to improve employee engagement and raise participation in proactive safety programs to an unprecedented level. An employee-led hazard recognition program experienced an impressive increase of 3,000 percent when looking at total hazards identified.”
