Randy Otten, Sanitation A-Shift 4th Quarter 1st Place • $250

Randy’s idea was to make a portable roller for the cereal line large belts. Currently, dirty belts are rolled off onto pallets, then pulled off onto the washbay floor to be washed, then rolled back onto the pallet to be dried by a fan. This is very labor inten- sive and time consuming for Sanitation. Randy’s idea would be a time-saver, and would help keep equipment clean. Ultimately it would make a very difficult job much easier. Once our Machine Shop has a little extra time, we will get this made and try it out!

Jessica Jenkins, Production C-Shift 4th Quarter Runner Up • $150

Jessica’s idea was to have regular meetings for new employee trainers. The goals being to standardize training practices and make training more consistent. This is a great idea, and one that we would really like to work on this year. Training is a big part of retention, so Production will be working on how we can develop this program.

Larry Shipman, Mix B-Shift 4th Quarter Runner Up • $150

Larry’s idea was to remove the sensors and extension cords that we currently use on the Sweco door to turn on the dust collection system. We should set it up so that the dust col- lection turns on when we turn on the Sweco after the batch has been finished. This is a great idea, and all 7 Sweco stations have been upgraded.
