I, like most of you am often asked, “…so, what do you do for a living?” How do you respond when asked this question? I’ve recently begun to give this more thought in my response.
At MCR Safety, our team members perform many different tasks and duties. Some are responsible for loading and unloading product; some are responsible for our IT infrastructure, some keep our equipment operational. The point is we are a company of many different and diverse tasks and responsibilities. But what do we do for a living? WE PROTECT PEOPLE! We provide the products and services that protect men and women around the world from workplace hazards. I’ve shared with our team many times, we may not wear a badge or holster a firearm, but we do protect people. Our badge of honor is making sure our products allow men and women to return home from work to their families and friends in the same condition they left for their work sites.
To everyone in the safety PPE industry, from the plant manager, safety engineer, distribution partners and suppliers to our MCR team members…..look beyond the boxes, look beyond the book keeping and compliance documents. What you will see is a man or woman, who by your actions and decisions, will return home with their vision intact, their hands and limbs in tact. They will see their children, they will hold hands with their spouse and they will play with their friends. They will do this in part because of YOUR actions and decisions to protect them with high quality, appropriate PPE.
