During these unprecedented times, this is how we’re managing the “new norm”

As we enter the second month of these unprecedented times, we wanted to share how the Haws teams have pivoted to support the health and safety of our employees as well as serve our global communities. Haws is fortunate to have been identified as an essential business and therefore is fully operational in all regions. While things may not look the same in our facilities, one thing that does remain the same is our commitment to meet our ever-changing customer needs.

Mgmt-Thank-you-webMeetings look a little different as our teams are mostly working remotely and the typical workday doesn’t look the same with many employees balancing childcare and distance learning. While the environment may look different inside our offices, our teams have been engaged with our valued customers to listen to needs and work to create solutions that are essential right now.

Production_1_webIf you were to take a walk down the halls in our Northern Nevada headquarters, you would see only a handful of employees in their offices, but the production floor is working overtime to push orders out daily while practicing physical distancing and wearing masks.

Because of our extensive safety efforts onsite and our teams working remotely, our live Customer Service and Tech Support teams are still able to manage customer requests and provide quick replies to quotation and pricing requests. In addition, our Procurement team is successfully managing suppliers and vendors to fulfill customer needs with no delays. Thus far, inventory levels are fully stocked and all products continue to be available with no delays in shipments.

7603-200-Production-Floor-webRecently, in response to a customer request, teams have worked together to create a portable handwashing station using our pressurized eyewash station base and a gooseneck faucet to serve remote decontamination sites, short-term medical treatment areas and locations without a source of running water. The new 7603-200 Handwashing Station is currently available to ship immediately with inventory on-hand.

EWC_Banner_LinkedInAs we think about how we have pivoted to support the needs of our changing market, we also look at the launch of our all-new EWC 1200 Series and its benefits of providing filtered water and touchless bottle-filling options.

We also recently re-released our popular model 7501 Portable Eyewash with quality improvements for enhanced usability.

As we continue to prioritize the health of our employees, we are in a fortunate position to be expanding our workforce in the United States. To review open positions, please visit https://www.hawsco.com/company/careers/.

Help your kids make healthy choices at school

SchoolLunch_w_ReuseableBottle

It’s back to school for most students which means that summer is heading to a close. And while most of the U.S. has experienced extreme heat this year, it’s not only hot temperatures we must worry about with our children’s health and hydration.

Back to school means parents aren’t around throughout the day to monitor their children’s food and beverage consumption. According to a poll done by Nestle Waters, while 88% of children choose water when prompted by parents, 49% of kids have access to sweet drinks at school.

With access to bottle fillers, students can refill their reusable water bottles multiple times throughout the day and forego trips to vending machines for sugary drinks. With the Hydration By Haws® fundraising program, you can work with your school to create a healthy environment for students and the planet.

For more information on our fundraising program, visit https://www.hawsco.com/hydration/bottle-filler-fundraising-program/

or contact Joanne Benz at [email protected] to get your program kicked off.

Our Most Loyal Friends Need to Hydrate, Too

According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), adult dogs need about one ounce of water per pound of body weight per day. But growing puppies, despite their small size, drink proportionately more than their adult counterparts. And, on especially hot days our furry friends may need even more water. Help them stay hydrated this summer with solutions from Haws®. Visit https://www.hawsco.com for a variety of dog-friendly fountain options.

Make Proper Hydration a Priority This 4th of July

Hydration_4th of July

With the 4th of July holiday quickly approaching, there are many questions we ask ourselves in preparation. Do we have enough briquettes/fuel for the BBQ? What food will we be cooking? Who else is bringing food? The drinks? If traveling, what needs to be packed, and is the gas tank full? In all our preparations, do we take proper hydration into consideration?

Whether we’re watching the fireworks at the beach, the park, or in our backyard, having plenty of fresh water available – for the whole family – is essential to having a safe and healthy holiday.

An average of six to eight glasses of water each day is important to stay hydrated, and if we’re out in the sun all day – eight to ten eight-ounce glasses is better. There are many water delivery options on the market, from one-time use plastic bottles (let’s protect the environment and avoid those), to reusable bottles, and insulated bottles that keep water cool for hours. Dehydration can happen quickly, especially when outdoors, so it is important to recognize the symptoms. If you start to have muscle cramps or headaches, or become lightheaded, you are probably becoming dehydrated. Be sure to carry water with you, or if at an event, know where it is provided.

And don’t forget that there are many foods that help with hydration; strawberries, cucumbers, celery, tomatoes, pineapple, and watermelon are all great sources of water, so when planning your food items, be sure to add some of these options to your grocery list.

Enjoy the holiday, and be sure to hydrate!

Hydration By Haws™ – Save the Planet One Bottle at a Time
Hydration By Haws

Hydration By Haws

Earth Day 2018 focused on plastic pollution. This year’s theme is Protect Our Species. Upon reflecting on our oceans and rivers and the fish and fowl that live and feed in these bodies of water, these two themes are enmeshed. Our oceans are such vast expanses of water, but they are all polluted with debris, most of it plastic.

A segment on 60 Minutes covered the pollution on the Midway Island – and not just how much debris ends up there, but how much of it is ingested by the birds that live there. The plastics floating in the ocean are broken up into smaller fragments by the waves, reefs and rocks. These fragments are mistaken by the birds to be food. Plastic is so ubiquitous on Midway that every single albatross on the island will likely die with a stomach full of it. A typical albatross stomach includes “stuff about the size of a cigarette lighter – everything from golf balls to shotgun shells, or chunks of plastic that used to be something bigger,” according to Bret Wolfe, deputy manager of the Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge. When birds die and decompose, the plastic in their guts remains. “Anywhere you see a big pile of plastic but nothing else,” Wolfe said, “that’s where an albatross died.” Link to segment.

So this year, let’s think about how we can help save the lives of not only the birds on Midway, but all of the birds and bees and all of the other species we share this beautiful planet with. For those wanting to rid themselves of plastic from one-use water bottles, Haws offers several alternatives, like our Hydration By Haws™ wall-mounted bottle filler, and retrofit bottle fillers for drinking fountains.

 

One Hydration By Haws™ unit can reduce the consumption of as many as 36,000 standard 16.9oz plastic bottles each year! Think how many birds and fish that reduction can save! Haws offers a fundraising program for schools and colleges, here’s how the program works;
Sell Nalgene® bottles with your school logo printed on them. The bottle sales proceeds pay for a new Hydration By Haws bottle filling station. After 90-days, pay for the filling station with the bottle sales proceeds. No money comes out of your budget! Install your Hydration By Haws unit and start reducing the amount of one-use plastic water bottles!

A New Year’s resolution we should all be following

2019_1stQtr_Inforgraph_v2 How are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions? Still hitting the gym every day? Getting up without hitting the snooze button?

In 2019, let’s all try and increase our water intake.

Haws supports the community through charitable contribution programs

As we look back on the year and gauge our organization’s global achievements, we look a little deeper than the numbers to evaluate success.

Haws has a culture that believes in supporting the community in which it resides. It’s one of our core values – to be a caring organization. This is evident by the various giving activities we participate in throughout the year to engage and help our local regions.

H2018_CasseroleFundraiser_1aws has a unique way of participating in local charities. Every two years team members are responsible for nominating and then voting on two charities to support company-wide. For the next two years, each charity receives a $5,000 annual contribution from Haws, and throughout the year we hold numerous unique employee fundraising events to support these charities and add to the Haws corporate donation amount. Did someone say bake sales and chili contEddy_House-Checkests?

In 2018, we once again supported the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation and, for the first time, the team selected local charity, The Eddy House. On top of the corporate $5,000 donations, Haws offers a one-to-one matching program for employees. Through our matching program, we’ve been able to donate an additional $1,000 for each of the two selected charities.

And that’s not all! On top of organized giving programs, our employees step up during times of need. This year, many of our Reno employees donated their Haws gift, a holiday grocery voucher, to those who had lost their homes in the Northern California Camp Fire. The vouchers were used to purchase dinners for displaced families.  In addition, we hosted a denim and clothing drive for the Reno Rodeo Foundation.

It’s clear that there’s no shortage of charitable spirits here, and in 2019 we hope to surpass those numbers as we continue to support The Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation and The Eddy House!
