Recognition of MAA Safety Innovation – VSI Crusher Shoe Change Out

Rich Ellis from the Edw. C. Levy company received special recognition of doughnuts and coffee from the Michigan Aggregates Association for his role in developing and implementing a valuable safety innovation. 
Ritchie along with other colleges developed the VSI crusher shoe change out apparatus to assist in the regular maintenance of changing VSI shoes.  Since its inception, this innovation has helped protect employees from back and shoulder strains and has reduced countless pinched fingers.
If you or someone at your company has devised a better and safer work operation, please make sure to submit an application to the MAA Safety Committee.
As a reminder… The MAA safety innovation program recognizes companies and individuals who go above and beyond normal safety practices by establishing or developing new ways to be safe.  Safety Innovations can be items/practices invented for a specialized use or items/practices that are adapted from other industries and implemented into our own.
