Manufacturing Day 2022

1 MIN READ

Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. It’s a celebration that provides an opportunity to showcase all that manufacturing has to offer, and what it means for our country, our economy, and the lives of millions of Americans.  This year for Manufacturing Day Cambridge had the privilege of hosting students from the Francis Howell school district. These students are individuals that are interested in pursuing a career in manufacturing or are intrigued by what options exist. They were able to take a tour of the plant, and engage with a few current Cambridge employees. Our team members shared their own career paths and what their experience has been like in the manufacturing industry.  Cambridge also had internal celebrations for Manufacturing Day. We made it into a week of celebration to show appreciation for our hardworking team. In true Cambridge style we celebrated with lots of food as well as some new shirts.  Manufacturing Day is a great way to engage the community and work on our goal of bringing glory and dignity to manufacturing.

What to expect on the journey to be SHARP Certified

3 MIN READ

Achieving SHARP certification (Safety and Health Recognition Program) is one of the most prestigious honors a small business can receive. SHARP recognizes small businesses that have used OSHA's consultation program and have shown they have operational excellence when it comes to safety.  Cambridge first heard of SHARP through MODOL and the Missouri On-Site Safety and Health Consultation. We are a culture that puts safety first so we became very interested in SHARP certification.  How Does a Business achieve SHARP certification? Obtaining SHARP certification is a serious undertaking that requires dedication from internal staff and an investment of time and resources to achieve success. To start, you can: - Request a consultation visit that involves a complete hazard identification survey by calling 573-522-SAFE or filling out an On-Site Application - Involve employees in the consultation process - Correct all hazards identified by the consultant - Implement and maintain a safety and health management system - Agree to notify your state Consultation Project Office before making any working changes or introducing new hazards into the workplace.    Planning for success means planning for obstacles When we decided to begin this journey, we knew it was not going to be accomplished quickly ...

How do you answer “What do you do?”

2 MIN READ
Changing perspective might be your game changer. It certainly was ours. “Helping Leaders Create Better Working Environments for Hard Working People” is the message on the home page of our website. It signals for the reader, the answer to the question “What is it that you do?” For years, we answered that question by saying that we are an HVAC manufacturer. Technically, that is true - however, “What we do” is help business leaders support their people by delivering systems/processes/support along with our equipment that create comfort and well-being for an organization’s most valuable asset – their employees.

4 Reasons Why Your Employee Comfort Should Come First

2 MIN READ
“Comfort” is an interesting word that we use a lot at Cambridge.  Since we are an HVAC company, it is usually in context with making sure the people in your industrial facility are breathing fresh, tempered air, or making sure that your employees in high-bay buildings aren’t freezing in the dead of winter. There’s also “comfort” in the realm of making sure your employees know that you’ve got their back and have a genuine interest in their personal health and professional growth. Still, most companies overlook the importance of physical employee comfort, and are losing real talent and real opportunity to grow with those employees when they leave to pursue a workplace that can meet and exceed their basic requirements of a healthy working environment. Not convinced? Here are four reasons that we think will back us up.
