Spring 2022 Quarterly RIDE
Kenneth A. McDonald
Message from the CEO
I encourage each of you to think about the messages behind the quotes and how they assist in your daily life, help when working with your colleagues, and relate to LBT’s goals and priorities.
“The kindest thing you can do for someone else today…is to listen without forming an opinion.”
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
Operator Appreciation Day
Safety in an office environment is important. While your environment might not be traditionally dangerous, injuries can also occur.
To avoid ergonomic issues:
- Stretch and walk around regularly. Make sure you do not remain sedentary.
- Do not ignore pain.
- Refrain from carrying items that are too heavy.
- When seated, use the correct posture (shown in the picture).
Taking walking breaks is also good for your mind. It can help you improve concentration, increase your creativity, as well as boost your mood. But did you know that even short little walks can be good for your physical health too? So, enjoy the nice ocean breeze and take a walk during your break. Don’t forget to wear your safety vest when walking in our yards for added visibility and your safety.
Do you know the speed limit in our facilities? 5 MPH
The speed limit and other posted road signs always must be obeyed. Go slow, be alert, and always use your turn signals in parking lots. LBT’s yards are shared with pedestrians, vendors, and visitors.
- Slow down and obey the 5-mph speed limit.
- Yield the right-of-way to all pedestrians, especially when exiting the yard.
- Give the right-of-way to those backing up their vehicles.
- Stop at all stop signs, especially when exiting the yard by the guard shack.
- Drive in the direction of one-way traffic.
- Do not cut through the parking lot to get to a parking stall; instead, go with the traffic flow.
Remember, safety starts and ends with you!
