When it comes to creating a culture of safety, Pilot Chemical Company in Cincinnati is “all in.”
At the start of every internal meeting with at least four people, a Pilot employee reads a safety message from a deck of customized playing cards.
“It’s a creative way to be mindful that safety is everyone’s priority,” said Jason Denlinger, corporate EHS manager for Pilot Chemical. “Before we introduced the cards, safety moments were not always being shared at meetings. Now it’s just a part of our routine; someone even shuffles and cuts the deck before we get started.”
