CIP 2018 2nd Quarter Winners The Continuous Improvement Program (CIP) is a program where employees submit suggestions on ways they think we can improve Crest Foods. These suggestions may help improve overall efficiency, employee safety, sanita- tion, record keeping, maintenance and various other areas around Crest Foods. We received 18 suggestions from employees for the 2nd quarter. Thank you to everyone for participating! Larry Shipman, Mix B-Shift 2nd Quarter 1st Place • $250

Currently the liquid shortening tank is sitting idle at the Mix Facility. We should look into cleaning it out and converting it to store canola oil in bulk for GMI. Great idea! A potential cost savings for GMI and space savings at Crest, as we currently store canola oil in drums, which takes up a lot of warehouse space. It would also enable us to make more accurate oil injections. We will look into how to make this happen.

Install a guard on the SKF conveyors on lines 26 & 27 where there is a dangerous pinch point on the top and bottom. Great recognition of changing conditions and responding with safety in mind. This has been implemented and it’s much safer now.

Dusty Koch, Building Maintenance 2nd Quarter Runner Up • $150

We currently don’t have a good access point to the roof at the Main Plant. We will soon be clearing an area and removing a boiler which will give us the room to provide a safe roof access. Great idea to give us a safer option to access the roof instead of a tall ladder.
