Today’s water cooler conversation: Safety
Argonne is moving from five-gallon to three-gallon water cooler bottles. Why? Well, it’s because three-gallon bottles are lighter weight and safer for people to lift and handle. In the last several years, Argonne has experienced multiple incidents in which employees were injured when lifting or changing water cooler bottles.
While three-gallon bottles will increase the price of bottled water incrementally due to more frequent deliveries, just one less back injury generates a full return on investment. Your safety is Argonne’s priority.
Filtered tap water is another convenient and environmentally friendly option available in many buildings.
