FOOD DRIVE

The Ashtabula County Safety Council recognized Chromaflo Technologies and its employees for their participation in the annual Food Drive for the Lighthouse Harvest Center.

Employees from Chromaflo helped collect non-perishable food items to help fill the void after the 2020 food drive was interrupted by COVID-19.

The Ashtabula County Safety Council rewarded 192 Chromaflo employees for their efforts with a pizza party.  This annual food drive helps restock the food bank after the rush from the holidays. All food and other items received are donated to the Lighthouse Harvest Center on State Road.

Although this is a relatively new role for her – she has been in this position for about a year — she has quickly and effectively made significant upgrades to our EHS program. Her passion for and dedication to the company’s safety are unbounded, and this is evident in the countless initiatives that she has implement and is currently pursuing — for example:

• For any safety incident, including any near miss, Felicia effectively leads the investigation and development and implementation of preventative measures.

• Felicia instituted a new Safety Ambassador Program, a cross-function team of LCP associates that meets regularly to identify safety improvements and helps reinforce our culture of safety throughout the organization.

• Each month, Felicia selects a safety topic of focus, and through creative communications and activities, she educates the company on potential risks and safe behavior.

• Felicia has revamped our forklift safety program, ensuring that all associates that use forklifts have been sufficiently trained and tested.

• Felicia attends all of the Ashtabula County Safety Council meetings to expand her knowledge and bring new ideas back to LCP. Finally, she is currently pursuing her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health and Safety degree at Oakland University. All of the associates at Lake City Plating are appreciative and fortunate to have Felicia Leonard as their EHS Coordinator.
