Duke is the chair holder of Atlas Pressed Metals safety committee, which meets monthly to discuss various safety topics, safety training, and safety goals to be achieved in the near future. Duke is also a member of the Atlas Pandemic Response Team (PRT) which meets biweekly, or as needed to discuss a proactive strategy to keep COVID-19 out of the building and our workers safe. Duke has been an integral part of Atlas rolling out and implementing the COVID-19 response plan, and ensuring that workers enter the plant safely by getting a temperature screening, donning a mask, and maintaining social distancing procedures.
Duke describes his number one goal is to develop and maintain a safety culture where employees are providing input, and feel like they are a contributing part of the Atlas safety team.
