Safety First

Gary Edge joined us at Emerald Park on 2nd January as
the new health & safety officer.
We are sure that all colleagues would like to welcome Gary and here in his own words is a little
of Gary’s background.

Hi to you all at Emerald Park. I would first like to say a big thank you for the warm welcome I
have received from everyone and just give you all a little insight into my life. I am married with
two sons and live at Paulton. I have been a health & safety officer for eight years and worked
with Linpac, Appetito and Northern Foods before joining you all at Emerald Park.

Health & safety is of paramount importance and many challenges lie ahead but I am certain that
with the help of my fellow managers, health & safety reps and all of you that I will soon be able
to make an impression to help the site achieve its goals in the health & safety field.

I do hope that when you see me walking around the site and you feel that you have a health &
safety question that you would like answered that you will stop me and if I can I will give you an
answer there and then or if a more in depth explanation is required I will make sure that I will
inform the department H&S rep to get back to you.

I am looking forward to many ‘SAFE’ years ahead with you all at Emerald Park and will keep in
touch with you regularly via the notice boards and through my regular slot in The Emerald.


                                                                                                     I am looking forward to many

A Dream Come True
For Richard Sheppard – driver

After twenty two years in the warehouse driving a
forklift and getting fed up with “PICKING ALL THE
TIME”. I decided that like Toad of Wind in The Willows it
was to be the open road for me.
I put my name on the long long list and about a year later my chance came to get behind the
wheel. Ant & Dec took me under their wings and after the theory test which was “easy peasy” I
finally got into the cab of P643 AJU.

After two weeks of reversing, manoeuvring and the most important part of training, learning
how to eat bacon sarnies and drink tea by the gallon, the day of the dreaded test came round.

I sailed through this one, little knowing what was to come with the Class I.

Driving something that bends in the middle when reversing took some getting used to and
roundabouts and bends took a whole new approach, but Allan had patience and a hell of an
appetite. (Olympic Gold Medal for Bacon Sarnie Eating 1964).

By the day of the test I was well ready or so I thought but by clipping the kerb on going round a
bend, I failed !!!

So after a couple more days of training I was back down the test centre and what had been my
strongest point (reversing) let me down this time and I failed again, who said it was easy??? By
now my nerves were jangling but within another couple of weeks I was there again. As a regular,
I was now on first name terms with the examiners and Allan was piling on the pounds and the
West Country was experiencing a bacon shortage

This time the test went like a dream and it was third time lucky. My eyes were full of tears of
joy and Allan’s with sorrow as his visits to the tea van were now going to be much less frequent.

It’s now eight months since I passed my test and I pretty much know every Sainsbury’s branch
in the South West and South Wales and some places where they aren’t.

I can honestly say that this was the best career move I could ever have made and I only wish
that I had done it sooner and would recommend to all of you thinking of doing it, “go for it”, you
won’t regret it.

Thinking back, if the “Training Programme” hadn’t been in place I would never have got the           By the day of the test I was well
opportunity and would have spent the rest of my working life grumbling and moaning at the            ready or so I thought but by
P.M s in the warehouse.                                                                              clipping the kerb on going round

Colleagues’ Corner

Service Awards                            The following colleagues have received their service awards.

                                         10 years                            15 years                              20 years
                                         Paul Caddick                        Dave Knight                           Colin Buckley
                                         Paul Phillips
                                          We apologise to Christine Dunn who received her 15 year award 19/10/2006 and her name
                                          should have been included in issue 26.

                                          Colleagues’ service awards are made at 10 years, 15 years and 25 years. The
                                          list for colleagues who have reached 20 years is just in recognition of reaching
                                          this milestone but there is no service award.

All colleagues we are sure are aware of the Long Service Awards but how many of you know that Emerald Park has more than eighty
colleagues who have been with the company for more than twenty years, (that totals more than one thousand six hundred years) and
that there are also many others with service up to and over thirty years.
This is a record to be proud of as many companies today have trouble retaining their colleagues and it also gives new colleagues
confidence to know that working for a company that encourages long service gives them security when planning for the future.

New Starters                                                                     The Butcher
                                                                                 A man walked into a butcher’s shop and asked the butcher “Are
                                                                                 you a gambling man?”
We’d like to welcome the following new starters:                                 The butcher said, “yes.”
                                                                                 The man then said “I bet you fifty pounds that you can’t reach up

                                                                                 The butcher looked up at the meat hanging on the hooks. He said
                          L Fernandes                                            “I’m not betting on that.”

                                                                                 “Yes I am.” said the butcher. “But the steaks are too high”.
