Julie Holtorf, Supervisor of IPI's Rockwell City operation, received the DOC's Excellence in Safety Award. Since assuming her role in Rockwell City, Julie has dedicated much time to process improvements, safety training, cleanliness and organization. Under Julie’s direction, the I/I workers have established many training protocols, updated emergency response plans, implemented PPE requirements, completed Job Hazard Analyses, reviewed all SDS records, reviewed LOTO equipment, updated all LOTO procedures, implemented forklift training and inspection protocol, and worked to organize all areas of the production floor.
