As a company committed to our people, we take pleasure in welcoming new members into our teams as they begin their journey with us.

Meagan Densford joined our Fite Road, USA site in February this year as Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Specialist. We spoke to Meagan about her thoughts on working at Lucite International (LI) and got to know some more about her…

 

What attracted you to working for us?

“I have worked in the chemical industry for almost ten years and LI is known to be one of the best.”

What does a typical day in your role involve?

“I usually spend most of my mornings ‘in the field’, walking and working with operators to ensure daily safety. Afternoons and evenings are spent working on regulatory issues and procedures and plans to ensure safety and environmental topics for the site are up-to-speed and correct. Right now, I am focused on forming a good emergency response team with proper training and equipment.”

What do you enjoy most about your work?

“I love the people. I love working with them to ensure everyone goes home safe at the end of every day. Training and teaching people, then watching them get that ‘a-ha!’ moment of clarity is one of my favourites.”

How would you describe the environment/culture here?

“I think it is a great team-player environment. Everyone is very helpful and willing to teach. They let me ask questions and are not afraid to show me where things are. They also are very safety conscious, from doing job safety analysis to ‘take two’ – stopping and really focusing on Safe Start so that every job is done the right way in the safest manner possible.”

What is your passion outside of work?

“I love to travel! I want to see the world and I love to go hiking. I’ve started baking, working with fondant and other techniques to start making cakes. I also enjoy reading.”

If you could switch places with one person for a day, who would it be?

“I think I would switch with the actress, Jennifer Aniston. I loved the show Friends when I was growing up and she is one of my favourite actresses.

Describe working for Lucite International in three words…

“Successful, compassion, future.”
