Boss is proud to help when disaster strikes.

Boss Gloves was there to help during the recovery efforts after a tornado ripped through Elk City, Oklahoma.   The tornado caused severe damage in the area and at least one death. It was estimated that twenty to thirty Elk City area homes and businesses suffered damage.


Rene Soto, Owner of Aztec Safety Solutions & Supplies, worked with the American Red Cross to assess the damage and serve hot meals to the victims.  They also discussed appropriate personal protection equipment for the clean-up such as the Boss gloves 1JM500 and 1JM600 as well as high visibility safety vests.

“I want to thank Rene for his partnership & allowing Boss to be a part of this tornado disaster clean up. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those whose lives & families were effected.”  Robin Danielson, Territory Sales Manager

 

Celebrating Safety Week with JE Dunn Construction and Aztec Safety Solutions & Supplies

Boss Gloves participated in the Safety Week for JE Dunn Construction together with Aztec Safety Solutions & Supplies. The day started with an early morning breakfast at the project site located on the beautiful campus of the University of Oklahoma in Norman. After breakfast employees of JE Dunn and Aztec Safety were able to try on various types of Boss personal protective equipment ranging from different glove styles to high visibility safety vests. While trying on the Boss gear, participants shared their needs and feedback with the Boss team. Those in attendance were also offered the chance to win some great prizes!

“Throughout the week we accomplished many things including; have fun in creating excitement about safety, review important training topics & procedures that will safely mitigate daily hazards in our industry, reinforce and empower staff with Stop Work Authority, and engage individuals to create a personal commitment toward their safety and the safety of those around them,” Stated Jason Bishop, Senior Project Manager at JE Dunn Construction.
“We’re off to a great start on the project and feel confident that this week has helped reinforce the commitment to see everyone go home safely each day,” Bishop continued. “With this said, we did want to relay our appreciation and humbly request that everyone stay engaged in their continued communication going forward on site. If we can all put safety first in our communication to our staff on the front lines, we can create the positive behavioral based safety we’re trying to achieve.”

“Building partnerships while educating and providing the right personal protective equipment is our main goal here at Boss Manufacturing. My sincerest thank you again to Rene Soto from Aztec Safety Solutions and Supplies, LLC as well as the entire team at JE Dunn Construction for inviting Boss and me to participate in your Safety Week!” ~Robin Danielson, Territory Sales Manager
