World Day for Safety and Health at Work took place on April 28th and to coincide with the global celebration Intel recognised a number of safety stars from our sites around the world.
Amongst those recognised as Safety Stars were two Leixlip based employees who were selected for their innovations, impact, execution, and going above and beyond so they and their colleagues go home safe and healthy every day.
- Jim Carroll, from Artane in North Dublin, was recognised for providing significant support to the Fab 24 Maintenance Ergonomics program including the coordination of a Maintenance Ergonomics Roadshow which provided a platform for both Fab technicians and vendors to display their ergonomic initiatives. Over 1000 Intel employees attended the four-day event. It was an excellent exhibit of all the great initiative and inventions that the Maintenance Ergonomic program have developed over the past two years.
- Kevin Reilly, from Terenure in South Dublin, was recognised for completing over 30 ergonomic improvements across a number of different toolsets in the fab. The majority are complicated, for example custom-made solutions such as hoists in tight spaces. His projects have involved collaborating with outside vendors, reviewing design drawings, building prototypes, testing prototypes, creating a repository of best practises, driving specification updates, seeking out storage solutions and ensuring CE marking. Kevin’s achievements are a great example of participatory employee ergonomics.
