Tri-State Manufacturers’ Association will hold its general meeting on Tuesday, March 1, at the Walleye Lodge Pub and Grill in Osakis. Scott Huberty, Meadowbrook Insurance, is scheduled as the guest speaker.
At 2 p.m., the QCI Network meeting will take place with Huberty presenting the topic, “Understanding How Worker Safety Impacts the Quality Process.” Any manufacturer involved with a quality program, be it Lean, ISO, etc., should understand that worker safety plays a key role in the success of that program, Huberty said.
Following the QCI Network meeting, at 4 p.m., participants will tour Lind-Rite Precision, Inc in Osakis, a contract manufacturer specializing in CNC milling, CNC turning, Swiss turning, and screw machining.
In 2006 Lind-Rite Precision constructed a brand new 22,500 square foot facility in Osakis. The ISO certified company manufactures precision machined parts for a variety of industries. Secondary operations and assembly services are also available in-house.
After the tour, meeting participants will enjoy a buffet dinner followed by Huberty sharing information about hazard recognition in the work place. Meeting participants will learn about the nature of hazards and the importance of understanding the hazard recognition process, and strategies for analyzing hazards as a means of reducing risk.
