Peabody Celebrates Hand Safety Month
Peabody Energy launched the “Look After Your Pinkies” hand safety campaign to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). Pink gloves replaced existing safety gloves in vending machines at mine sites, and a goal was established to achieve zero hand injuries in the month of June. The campaign was a huge safety success, with only one site recording a hand-related injury during the campaign. Peabody donated $1,000 to the NBCF for each site that achieved zero injuries, which amounted to $10,750. In addition, employees worked together to raise over $10,000 for the organization through donations and fundraising. A photo competition was also held for employees with the most original "pink gloves" photo. This is the winning photo.
