Division 2710 – Union Power – Jason Rinaldi & Crew

Submitted by Butch Floyd, Safety Manager

During one of my last site inspections/walk throughs at Union Power, I went into Jason Rinaldi’s job trailer to check it out and was very pleasantly surprised. The housekeeping, organization, and general orderliness of the trailer was quite impressive. I’ve inspected countless trailers and Conexes and it’s very seldom to find one in such good shape and condition.

The orderliness helps to protect ourselves and our employees from accidents in the trailer by keeping everything in its place with no slip, trip, & fall hazards on the floor, no items ready to fall off of a shelf, no Sawzall blades sticking out to cut someone, etc.

This level of organization also helps to increase production and the maintenance of our tools. When someone goes to the trailer for a tool, they shouldn’t have to look around trying to find something. Everything should have its place! It is a significant waste of production time when trying to find tools. This is also a huge testament to the way Jason and his crew are performing their work and the pride they have in a job well done.

If the trailer is this organized and neat, we can rest assured their work is high quality also. The next time you see Jason, Rassie, Roque, Christopher, Reymundo, and Ismael, let them know how good a job they have done and thank them for all of us!
