Former Intern Returns to Celanese

For those of you who don’t know me I’m Sasquatch and I was an intern here at Celanese. After that experience, I never thought I’d be back, but I’m proud to say that I’m returning as a full time employee! You may remember I was the mascot in the Dallas Safety Council’s Trips, Slips and Falls event where I posed for photos with many of you. Helping all of us be safe at work and at home is one of the many things I’ll be working on during my first few months here, and I’ll be posting regular updates on the CE-Blog about how I’m doing.

I’ve been a bit of a klutz my entire life. While I was an intern I was in more than a few accidents, and I struggled with staying safe at work. I once tumbled down a set of stairs and fell into Mark Rohr, and that wasn’t even the worst case. I was just a young Sasquatch lost and confused about common sense safety practices, and my place on the timeline of human evolution.

In the Pineywoods of East Texas, where I was born by a river in a little tent, there are no stairs or elevators, and you don’t have to worry about the dangers that come with driving or taking public transit. But, my long limbs and towering stature leave me prone to accidents. In school I was always bumping into things, knocking them over and just being a danger to myself and others.

Hopefully, with your help, I can learn habits and actions that will help me be safe at home, and in the office.

Planning Your Day

We all know that here at Celanese we’re always talking about safety, and actions that can prevent accidents in the workplace. Taking steps to be safe throughout the entire day is important, even when you’re out of the office. So, over the next months I will chronicle my trials and errors staying safe in the workplace, and in my everyday life outside of work.

I’ll be focusing on the following topics:

I’ll be sending everyone regular email updates whenever I’ve posted a new blog; so keep an eye on your inbox for regular messages about my progress.

What you can do:

This is a collaborative effort between me and all of you to help us all avoid accidents throughout our day. We’re encouraging you to join us in this discussion by sharing advice and testimonials of your own safety advice in the comments section. This is an opportunity for everyone, and we want to hear from you so we can all grow together!

      Thanks Jorge! Since I just started up here in Dallas I won’t be trekking far from the office anytime soon. But if I ever make it down to Bishop I’ll be sure to let you know. Good luck with your event!
