At our November Breakfast Series, we recognized Outlook Nebraska for going 5 years without a lost time incident. Congratulations to them on such an amazing accomplishment! 
 
About Outlook Nebraska: They were founded in early 2000 as a not-for-profit organization with just four blind associates producing paper products, a clear vision for the future and a determination to establish and foster a productive blind and visually impaired workforce. As they grew they kept learning, expanding and providing enriching opportunities for their associates, clients and community. Today, they are the largest employer of the blind and visually impaired not just in Nebraska, but a 7-state region. They continue to produce tissue and towel products, along with hopes, dreams, accomplishments and futures.
