Leeco Steel has appointed Jill Laumann to safety manager, effective April 5, 2021, as part of the company’s effort to revitalize its safety program.
In her new role, Laumann will manage companywide safety initiatives and focus on extending Leeco’s 29-month stretch of zero recordable accidents across all facilities.
“Employee safety has always been Leeco’s top priority,” said Chad Schuh, vice president of operations. “With Jill heading our safety program, we are excited to see how Leeco can further improve current safety protocols and implement new initiatives to help keep our employees safe.”
The safety initiatives that Laumann will implement in her role include evaluating and improving current safety documentation processes, increasing safety communications throughout facilities, updating and training facility managers on emergency response plans and ensuring that all facilities continue to be OSHA compliant.
