Celebrate Friendship

July 30 is International Day of Friendship!

If you’d like to celebrate, try reaching out to a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while, or you can extend friendship to someone you’d like to know better. Sometimes the smallest gesture makes the greatest impact.

A Good Night’s Sleep

We take pride in making products that make life more comfortable.

In 2021, we donated more than 900 mattresses, 100 innerspring units, and 40 bedframes to aid in disaster relief, homelessness and crisis recovery, and refugee resettlement. 

Product Spotlight: Elegante’ Carpet Cushion

When it comes to our homes, we sometimes have to choose between clean or comfortable. But with L&P Flooring Products Elegante’ carpet cushion, you can have both!

Elegante’ is designed with a moisture-resistant barrier that helps repel spills, as well as Fresh Dimension® antimicrobial to help inhibit the growth of mold, mildew, and odor-causing bacteria.

Randy Dye, Marketing/Product Manager, says: “Not only is the Elegante’ carpet cushion engineered for exceptional comfort, but it also includes features that make it perfect for homes with kids, pets, or where extra comfort is desired.”

Tips to Keep Our Workplaces Safe

As June comes to a close, we’re also wrapping up National Safety Month. How can we all reinforce workplace safety?

Pictured is Rick Blasko. Rick recently retired after 34 dedicated years of service to our Merit Steel facility in Kouts, Indiana.

Each of us can directly impact our work environment. Here are some questions you can ask yourself to ensure your workplace stays safe:

What do you see? Encourage proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE). Are team members following safe job procedures, using correct machine guards, and disposing materials in accordance with proper practice?

What do you hear? Is the team communicating correct safety protocols? Are they knowledgeable of safe job procedures? Is feedback communicated after accident investigations?

What do you feel? Are team members acting out of care for others? Are they taking part in corrective action discussions?

Communication is key. If you see, hear, or feel something is unsafe or can be done to improve the welfare of others, please speak up. You can always reach out to your local safety coordinator or a member of the management team for support or if you have questions. Let’s all work together to keep each other safe.
