SOC Nevada LLC, operating contractor at the Hawthorne Army Depot recently held an “all hands” Safety Stand Down at the Mineral County High School gym. As safety is the company’s number one value, the afternoon’s program began with a safety message from the General Manager, George Gram and briefing by Safety Manager, Patty Coen.
Compliance training followed including OSHA’s HazCom, Centralized Permitting presented by the team from Base Ops, Ethics, Sexual Harassment Prevention, communications and a business overview.
The grand finale was the launch of the company’s new employee recognition program called “Using our Super Powers for Good.” Members of the Mineral County High School cheer squad were on hand all day to help distribute the numbered tickets for the program and pass out refreshments and “half-time” type goodies.
Under the direction of MCHS cheer coach Dean Muir, the cheerleaders and four SOC employees choreographed a super hero skit and program presentation. More than 500 employees were in attendance and enjoyed the launch of the program.
“Many thanks to the coach and the cheer squad for all of your help on your Columbus Day holiday,” stated general ,anager George Gram. Gram added that the facility was perfect for the meeting and added his appreciation to Superintendent Hackford, MCHS Principal Domogalla, Maintenance Supervisor Tom Gallegos, his team Joe Carlos and Robert Elsasser, April Anderson, Marilyn Duncan and William Keady and Desirae DeMars for all of their help.
