VITALIA Active Adult Community® – North Olmsted Plant Operations Allows No Slip Ups With Building Safety


Building Safety Month takes place in May every year and is internationally recognized for raising awareness in keeping buildings safe. 

This initiative unites industries, associations, academia, and government under a common goal to protect the public by creating a safe and resilient environment. Our primary focus as the Plant Operations Team at VITALIA Active Adult Community® – North Olmsted North Olmsted, OH is keeping our residents, visitors, and staff safe.

There are several tasks I perform to safeguard our community. I do fire drills monthly to ensure that all residents, team members, and visitors are prepared, if we ever have a fire. I also do daily walks of the property to make sure everything is safe and secure for everyone. The Plant Operations Assistant checks all battery-operated smoke and CO detectors monthly to ensure they are all working properly.

As Plant Operation Directors are leaders of the “go to” team; we always seem to know where everything is. As a team, we make sure daily that everything is kept up to top standards for safety and cleanliness. I’m proud to say we have a fantastic team that looks out for safety hazards and will address all needs.

I also utilize my building safety at home. During the winter months I shovel my driveway, and sidewalks to make sure our mailman has a safe path to our house to deliver mail. I also change the smoke detector batteries every spring and fall, to make sure they are working properly.
