Speaker: Kyle Schmidt, Vice President of Environmental Health, Safety, and Security, The Wine Group
Kyle Schmidt: Hello everyone, Hello everyone, my name is Kyle Schmidt and I'm the Vice President of Environmental Health and Safety and Security at The Wine Group. I'm excited to talk to you today about our partnership with Avetta. At TWG, we are proud to be a leader in the wine industry for over 40 years with exceptional brands, exceptional people and exceptional vendors and contractors. We pride ourselves in producing and distributing outstanding wines and focusing on continuous improvement in all areas of our business. To that end, and due to the many changes we have all seen over the last few years, our current contractor pre-qualification process can no longer keep up with our or your needs. We are transitioning our contractor safety pre-qualification program to Avetta to help improve contractor communication and support, centralize data, and help us maintain a high level of employee health and safety for all workers - TWG or otherwise, as we continue to grow and adapt to the new challenges of the world we operate in. We are asking you to join this program through Avetta to help us improve standards across our supply chain and ensure a safe and healthy work environment for all employees. Joining this program will help us streamline our approval process and allow you to easily understand the work requirements and become compliant for your work here with us. Thank you all in advance for doing your part to help us through this process and for your commitment to safety as you work with TWG.
