Tim Meyers recognized in the NFTA Pit Crew Campaign

The newest edition of the NFTA's Pit Crew Campaign highlights Safe Lifting and features Airfield Supervisor, Tim Meyers, who has worked at the NFTA for 39 years.  
 
The new "Lift Safely" poster brings attention to the proper way to lift heavy items.  A couple of tips include the following: 1) stand close to the object, 2) squat down by bending knees while keeping stomach tight, 3) pull load close, 4) as you rise,
lift with your legs, 5) avoid turning body, and 6) most importantly -
always ask for help when needed.

     
Tim was chosen for this campaign due to his commitment to safe work practices for both himself and within his team.   He currently works as the NFIA's Airfield Supervisor where he oversees 13 employees.  Prior to this role, he has held various positions at the NFTA, starting as a custodian at the Buffalo Airport. 
 
Tim is a father of four children and also serves as Town Councilman for the Town of Cheektowaga.  Please join in congratulating him on being selected to represent the NFTA in this authority-wide safety initiative.
