If you are a safety or EHS director, you probably knew this was coming: starting January 21, 2017 certain companies will be required to electronically submit their injury and illness data. This is data these companies should already be keeping, so the requirement isn’t so much about new record keeping as it is updated methodology.

The company called on Cisco-Eagle to help it plan and execute nearly 1,200 pallet positions in a combination of freezer and cooler storage areas.

Cisco-Eagle’s history in Oklahoma City and at Tinker Air Force base has been decades in the making. We have helped a variety of companies increase productivity, reduce inefficiency and advance their goals over the years. When people and forklifts or other heavy vehicles work in the same space, the potential for accidents is great —and the consequences devastating. In warehouses, plant floors, in hangars, or even traffic lots, we offer solutions to help reduce the chances of these accidents.

Visit us November 15th and 16th, from 8:00 to 3:00, building 3001 in the Oklahoma Room.

Cisco-Eagle Announces Austin, TX Office

October 6, 2016

Paul Erlinger Cisco-Eagle Austin

Dallas-based Cisco-Eagle has established operations in Austin, Texas according to Director of Sales Chris Doyle.

The new office serves industrial, commercial, distribution, and other markets in the Austin region, and all of Central Texas. The office was opened in response to Cisco-Eagle’s existing and potential new customer base in the region. “We have been doing business in Austin without a local presence for a couple of decades,” Doyle said. “It’s a dynamic market, with lots of technology, manufacturing and distribution companies that need our services. Because our existing customer base continues to grow and the economies are right, we decided to establish a presence to expand market share and better serve our Austin clientele.”

Interview: Proximity Detection for Forklift Safety

June 1, 2016

ZoneSafe Pedestrian Safety System

Safety has always been important to warehousing and manufacturing, but in recent years, the emphasis has grown – and it’s no wonder.

The forklift has always been at or near the top of these concerns, due to its common use. There are nearly 900,000 forklifts in use in the United State. Forklift accidents are always in OSHA’s top ten  safety violations lists. But the reality is that despite the dangers they can present, forklifts are indispensable for material handling operations.

We sat down with Donald Prater, Cisco-Eagle’s Safety Division Manager, to discuss some common questions involving ZoneSafe, a proximity detection technology that helps alert drivers that pedestrians are nearby as they do their work.

Case Study: American Greetings Reduces Maintenance, Noise Levels

May 3, 2016

Conveyor system in Arkansas

American Greetings, the largest greeting card company in the world, with a mission that includes the desire to make the world “a more thoughtful and caring place,” had an issue with its aging conveyor system. The company creates a variety of greeting cards and other products in its massive Osceola, Arkansas facility (which has more than 10 miles of conveyors and occupies a space around the size of 57 football fields).

The plant runs 24 hours, so finding a way to upgrade without reducing production was a challenge.

Cisco-Eagle Employee Owners

ESOP RECORD

From left: Missy Prince (Cisco-Eagle Employee-Owner), Michael Keeling (National ESOP Association President), Rosemary Weiland (Cisco-Eagle Employee-Owner), Jim Schranz (The Southwest Chapter of the ESOP Association President), Bob Hauck (Cisco-Eagle Employee-Owner).

In the early spring of 2015, Cisco-Eagle assembled some special work teams to complete a session of Process Improvement Training. Five employee-owners were designated to participate on the ESOP process improvement training. During six sessions, our team independently identified the need for a ‘re-branding’ of the company ESOP.

The team decided to adopt a theme to celebrate the financial upswing Cisco-Eagle has enjoyed over recent years: Rockin’ to Retirement—symbolic of the economic postwar boom America enjoyed during the 1950s—was selected to send the message that happy days are, indeed, here again. The theme logo was prominently displayed on each ESOP communication shared with employee-owners in emails, monthly company newsletter, monthly EAC newsletter, on company bulletin boards and in company meetings.
