  • The Coweta County Safety Council  provides guidance and training to businesses in Coweta County. It is comprised of safety professionals who desire to share their collective knowledge to help local industry comply with OSHA regulation and ultimately keep the Coweta County workforce healthy and safe. The Safety Council believes that it takes the combined efforts of local companies and community resources to effectively promote safe work practices.

    Formed under the auspices of the Chamber, the Coweta County Safety Council exists to help make sure that local businesses are leading the way in keeping employees safe and preparing for natural disasters and unexpected emergencies.

    In recent months, Safety Council programs have included such topics as emergency preparedness, ergonomics, hot weather safety and OSHA regulations. Earlier this year, the council was among those sponsoring the highly popular Active Shooter seminars held at The Newnan Centre.

    The Coweta County Safety Council meets monthly, usually at The Summit in Newnan. For more information, contact CCSC President Ken Pinkerton at Ken.Pinkerton@grenzebach.com or call the Newnan-Coweta Chamber at 770.253.2270.


  • Coweta EMA director Jay Jones speaks on emergency preparedness at October Safety Council meeting

    Emergency preparedness training is available free of charge to all Cowetans through the local Emergency Management Agency, and Coweta EMA Director Jay Jones spoke on emergency preparedness at the October meeting of the Coweta County Safety Council.

    "Have a kit and have a plan" was Jones's advice to the local safety professionals, and he told them he is such a fan of emergency preparedness kits that he has even provided starter kits for family members as Christmas gifts. "That's how much I believe in it," he said.

    Jones said a kit can be as individualized as someone wants to make it, but he does recommend a kit include three to five days' worth of provisions, any extra medications that might be needed, and pet food.

    He said it's important to be prepared to take responsibility for your own welfare following an emergency because of the chance that other assistance might not immediately be available. He jokingly called this "the YO-YO" effect, with those letters standing for "you're on your own." Click here to read more

  • Coweta County Safety Council learns about safety solutions in the manufacturing industry

    June 21, 2017 (Newnan, GA) – Ronnie Underwood, vice president of Advantage Industrial Automation, was guest speaker at the Coweta County Safety Council’s June 20, 2017 meeting at The Summit and discussed ways local companies can make their manufacturing processes safer.

    A graduate of Auburn University with a degree in electrical engineering, Underwood began his career by designing computer typing stations for IBM, which then led to his work in the industrial automation business and a job at Ralston Purina. There he became the plant engineer responsible for keeping the facility running and capital upgrades at the plant. In 1994 he joined Advantage Industrial Automation, where he now solves automation challenges including facility and machine guarding safety, reducing facility downtime, increasing plant productivity, managing facility energy and quality improvement projects.

    Today’s workforce is changing, Underwood said, and the workforce’s processes are changing as well, with safety increasingly being a concern. “Safety is a growing field,” he said. Click here to read more
