On Friday, May 8th, we held our 5th Annual Vulcan Health and Safety Fair. A total of 34 vendors came out to promote good health in the employees of Vulcan. Health screenings were available including vision, bone density, simple blood sugar, and blood pressure. Vendors supplied goody bags for all in attendance, while burgers and hot dogs were provided by Gulf Coast Office Products. Fastenal even brought out its’ #17 car as seen on TV driven by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. This year’s theme was, “One Step at a Time Towards Good Health & Safety”. This theme exemplifies not only our strategy, but also our commitment to the health and welfare of each and every employee.

The health fair was mutually beneficial for vendors and employees alike. Vendors have a chance to promote their business through offering health related information, consultation or a platform for correcting misconceptions. Employees have a chance to see a number of different options without having to travel to different locations. What is my blood pressure? Do I need an eye doctor? What insurance options are available? Where is a good dentist? We may not have all the answers but we strive to provide an avenue for finding answers and options to common problems.

With soaring rates of heart disease, obesity, and cancer threatening Americans these days, we know keeping 200+ employees safe is a huge responsibility (See our blog post from March 23rd for status on our journey). Employees are the lifeblood of Vulcan. They keep the wheels of production spinning; but, more importantly, they harness our spirit. The health fair is a unique opportunity to engage the safety, health and welfare community from which we self identify. Additionally, it can be a way to reach out to the underserved. As everyone knows, Vulcan is an Employee Owned Company. Keeping our owners happy and healthy is generally good practice.
