Platinum Safety Award

Platinum award 2021, Western Precast Concrete

Spanish

Western Precast has tallied over 600 days without a lost Anne incident and recently we were honored for our safety record by NPCA. Western Precast was awarded the Silver Safety Award for its commitment and achievements in safety under the 60,000 to 120,000 hours worked category.

I was honored to accept this prestigious Silver Safety award on behalf of the company and am proud to share the script presentation attached to the plaque:

“For outstanding commitment to safety this 2020 Silver Safety Award is given to the team members of Western Precast Inc, in recognition of achieving the exemplary record of plant safety. Participation in the NPCA safety awards program affirms an ongoing commitment to creating a strong culture of safety throughout the precast concrete plant, including employee safety training and adherence to safe production practices. Congratulations to all the team members at Western Precast.’

As Safety Director, I would like to affirm that achieving true safety success, is a culture that comes from the top down and must be backed by a commitment to be safe from the front office. We are fortunate to have always had the Commitment from ownership that sets a safe culture for the entire staff. As I think back, one of our past Western Precast President’s, John Kramer used to often comment to me when we met in the yard: “Make sure you keep an eye out for the entire staff, you can never be too safe”. I think Mr. Kramer would be proud!
