Let Veterans Help with Planning, Training
For this upcoming Veteran’s Day, I want to use our weekly toolbox tip to remind foremen and supervisors who hold weekly meetings to tap the servicemen and women on your crews for help. Many of the men and women who have served our country bring to your company a skill set for maintaining and operating equipment; seek their assistance when teaching and training new members of the crew. Veterans of our armed forces often have leadership and training skills you can put to use within the crew, plant yard or home office.
While the month of November will see AsphaltPro offering you tips for shutting equipment down for the winter season, this week I want to encourage you to take a look at the people in your organization. Rather than “shutting them down” for the winter season, see where they can benefit your next-season planning, off-season equipment maintenance or upgrading, or other company planning and training efforts.
To the veterans receiving our toolbox tips, the family at AsphaltPro magazine thanks you for your service.
