Roberts Hawaii Helps Themselves While Helping Local High School
Roberts Hawaii, the premier tour and transportation company in Hawaii has cooperated with a local high school to produce an in-house safety video for their drivers to learn better safety techniques in loading/off-loading baggage on their buses and vans.
Safety Manager, Jennifer Hill says, “The last picture is of me handing Waianae High School’s Searider Productions’ director our donation check for their help in the video’s production. All the kids you see in the pictures are going to Florida next month for a national video production competition. 100% of our donation will be used for their trip.”
The video production titled, “Think Before You Lift” where company employees wrote and acted a script with various safety tips in handling baggage for their specific buses and vehicles.
Roberts Hawaii’s safety program includes a wide range of programs including injury prevention and management program implemented through Integrated Injury Management Service Inc. Terry Lawson, PT, CAE, CEO of Integrated Injury Management is a kama’aina (long-time Hawaii resident), currently residing in California, has been working with Roberts Hawaii for over three years in developing this program. It is the first to be implemented state-wide, through local physical therapy clinics providing pre-employment/post-offer functional testing, fit-for-duty testing and Functional Capacity Evaluation (True Capacity Evaluations). All functional testing in the program is to determine the ability of workers to safely perform job tasks.
The local clinics participating are:
Concentra Medical Center/Physical Therapy-Honolulu, Oahu
Elite Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine-Wailuku, Maui
Club Rehab-Kona, Hawaii
“Think Before You LIft” is one in a series of cooperative video productions Roberts Hawaii has sponsored primarily for safety applications. These productions by Roberts employees are very helpful to not only get the safety word out, but to get employees working together on projects to help themselves and their communities. And it’s not hard to tell by the faces of the employees and student that they had a great time doing it.
All the best to the Waianae High School’s ‘Searider Productions’ as they take off to Florida for their national video production competition!
