Godwin Pumps has added safety specialist John Hughes to its environmental safety and health team located at its Bridgeport, N.J., headquarters, the company said last week. Hughes will visit each of Godwin Pumps’ 26 company-owned branch locations on a regular basis to help managers and employees observe and address known and potential hazards in the workplace, and assist in the development of safer work habits to promote companywide improvements in safety.
“John has been brought aboard to support and strengthen our ongoing efforts to identify and reduce occupational risks to employees, and limit liability exposures to the company,” said Godwin president John Paz. “This will include developing more advanced environmental, safety, and health policies and procedures relating to product manufacturing, transportation, sales and service.”
Hughes has more than three decades of experience in manufacturing processes, regulatory compliance, reporting, behavioral safety, and best management practices. His expertise will be utilized for training, inspections, and compliance under state and federal regulatory programs.
