WCF recently recognized Your Employment Solutions (YES) COO Jarum Stone with the prestigious Safety Hero award! Jarum's proactive approach to workplace safety and his dedication to the employees he serves have long set him apart as a safety superstar. He has been instrumental in educating YES clients and employees alike in best practices for optimal workplace safety.
According to WCF, the Safety Hero award provides employers and community leaders the opportunity to create and promote awareness regarding the importance of workplace safety. This award looks to acknowledge and recognize the safety and health contributions, participation, and impact that a front-line employee plays in the workplace.
The award is based on contributions in one or more of the following areas:
- Safety and Health Leadership – Leadership in advocacy of worker safety and health initiatives that are beyond the traditional scope of one’s position.
- Innovation in Safety and Health – Development of innovative practices and procedures that reduce occupational hazards or risk.
- Promotion of Teamwork – Encouragement of team safety awareness, communications, and advocacy of safe and healthy workplace.
- Hazard Identification and Correction – Encouragement of improved safety self-audits, incident reporting, and other practices that lead to hazard reduction.
Jarum has been very involved overseeing the safety of several thousand employees hired by YES on a yearly basis. “Being the safety leader for an employment agency has some unique challenges,” says YES President Reed Laws. “Mainly that we cannot control the environment where our employees work on a daily basis, but Jarum has found some unique ways of partnering with our clients to ensure they are on the same page as YES regarding safety.”
Over a period spanning many years, Jarum has helped YES significantly reduce loss ratios which has resulted in fewer severe injuries to employees.
“It takes an army to set best-in-class records and to have such an outstanding industry safety record,” says Jarum. “I couldn't do this without amazing customers, engaged Branch Managers and amazing supporting staff! Winning this award is in small part giving Your Employment Solutions and it's partners the recognition they deserve after 25+ years of hard work and dedication to making safety a priority.”
Jarum's success can attributed to his diligent communication with claims adjusters, injured employees and safety managers at each of YES’s clients in order to prevent injuries as well as to get injured employees treated properly and back to work as quick as possible.
“YES is committed to partnering with its customers and offering them value-added services above and beyond traditional job placement,” says YES CEO Tom Carlin. “Workplace safety advice and counsel is a large part of that differentiated service. The WCF award validates the hard work that YES, led by Jarum Stone, has put into those efforts.”
Congratulations on a well-deserved safety award, Jarum. In the words of a true safety hero, “You can't spell SAFETY without YES! We are looking forward to 25 more years of safety excellence!”
