Orange Grove Safety Lunch n Learn and a Very Special Birthday
Updated: Jul 23, 2019
Welcome to the first post on the Internal Employee webpage! We hope this will be a means to keep our culture alive with the privileged few we call Cogent family, to share our victories with each other, and to communicate with each of you on important items like Open Enrollment (which is coming up soon so check back often!).
The HSE and DOT team, led by HSE Director John Alvarado, held a Lunch and Learn today at the Orange Grove Branch, which culminated with birthday cake for a very special Cogent employee!
The Lunch and Learn showed how each of you play a pivotal role in the Cogent Safety program - the BBS cards and the JSAs you do in the field make it all the way to CEO Chet Erwin’s desk.
Additionally, you got to hear from Noal and Ruben, as well as other valuable members of the safety team - David, Tim, and John M.
What we hope you took away from the Lunch and Learn is that the work you do is invaluable to allowing us to make it on locations for majors like Diamondback, EOG, and Anadarko. So THANK YOU for all you do, keep up the good work, and let’s continue to get better!
After enjoying delicious BBQ and with as many of the Cogent family together as possible, we were able to celebrate COO Chris Simmons’ birthday! We would not be Cogent without his incredible leadership, unfailing commitment, and superior technical knowledge. Chris, thank you for being who you are and for all you do for Cogent!
Wish Chris a Happy Birthday in the comments, and share your favorite Chris story!
