Safety & Wellness Committee

Minutes of Meeting – Nov 20, 2014


The Quarterly Meeting was called to order at 9:25 AM in the Conference Room at the Municipal Offices.

Members present: Mike Warfle, Charlie Rivers, Randy Adams, Shawn Hendee, Bob Berardo, Jean Parker and Linda Drummond. Chad Eugair from the Highway Department was also in attendance.

Linda moved to accept the Meeting Agenda. Mike seconded and the agenda passed unanimously.

The minutes of September 23, 2014 were reviewed. Linda noted that there has been an update to the Town’s website with the Safety & Wellness added to the meetings section. She suggested that it might be a good idea to put our mission statement out there.

Mike made the motion to accept the minutes of the September 23 and it was seconded by Bob. All approved.

Old business:

The vests and coats that were ordered for the Transfer Station employees were received, sizes right and very warm.

Winter is upon us and we should have our YakTrax cleats available to help us in slippery conditions. If anyone needs replacements please let Linda know and she will order them for you.

The VariDesk ordered for Jean is in place and much appreciated. These stand- up work stations promote better posture and general wellness.

Wellness consultations were held on October 29 and were well attended. Employee participation can earn the Town up to a 2% reduction in Workers Comp premiums.

A new LED light has been installed over the garage doors and new bulbs installed inside. That job is now complete.

New business:

Linda moved to appoint Chad Eugair to the Safety and Wellness Committee to represent the Highway Department. Jean seconded the motion and it was approved unanimously. Welcome Chad!

Our next quarterly meeting will immediately follow our Staff Meeting in February or March. Charlie made the motion to adjourn, Mike seconded. The meeting was adjourned at 9:40 AM.
