Fair Teaches Safety through Interactive Learning

A medical intern listens to heart sounds, demonstrating the use of an advanced life support mannequin to a co-worker during the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant’s safety fair. The mannequin is a tool used by the PCAPP medical team to practice care.

Employees learned about the ways different departments engage in the plant’s safety culture through hands-on demonstrations at a special event held at the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant.

“The purpose of the safety fair is to help promote the safety and health culture in a fun learning environment,” said Amy Shepherd, system safety supervisor and chair of the event. “It allows employees to engage in a different way than what they experience on a day-to-day basis.”

More than 400 PCAPP and U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot employees participated in the event held in August. Twelve departments or employee-led teams hosted interactive displays. Each group demonstrated their commitment to the continuous enhancement of the safety and health culture at the site, Shepherd said.

“The fair provides a comfortable environment for people to ask questions of a variety of departments,” Shepherd said. “It’s a great opportunity to interact with fellow co-workers.”

An annual event, the safety fair gives employees the opportunity to learn about employee organizations and become familiar with departmental safety initiatives in a fun-filled atmosphere.
