Ev­ery year, CSMO Textile (Comité sec­to­riel de maind’oeu­vre de l’in­dus­trie textile du Que­bec) rec­og­nizes busi­nesses in the in­dus­try that stand out for their skill de­vel­op­ment, hu­man re­source man­age­ment, pro­duc­tiv­ity or health and safety mea­sures with their Bons coups de l’in­dus­trie textile awards. Last week, at the CSMO an­nual gen­eral meet­ing held in Drum­mondville, Jo­mac Canada, of Stansead, re­ceived the award for Pro­duc­tiv­ity for a new prod­uct: a pro­tec­tive glove es­pe­cially de­signed for work­ers in the oil in­dus­try.

“Our client was ask­ing for a glove with more pro­tec­tion for the top of the hands, so we de­vel­oped the ‘Striker’. It’s im­por­tant to be in­no­va­tive in this in­dus­try,” com­mented Jo­mac Canada’s Hu­man Re­sources rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Joanne Labbé. The com­pany be­gan work­ing on the spe­cial glove in 2013, hav­ing to in­stall a new sewing ma­chine at their plant and train new em­ploy­ees to work the ma­chine. They be­gan pro­vid­ing the glove to their new client near the end of 2013.

“We were happy to get the award – it was thanks to the good work of our em­ploy­ees,” con­cluded Ms. Labbé.
