We’re starting the year off right with another safety excellence award, this time from The Builders’ Association. We were honored with two awards last week: first place winner in the Subcontractor Division for 50,001-150,000 work hours, as well as the Grand Award Winner for all Divisions for best overall safety program. The awards represent The Builders’ Association, Missouri Department of Labor Standards, Kansas Department of Labor, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Kansas City Office.
Kelly-Hill Company received these awards due to our “common sense” approach to safety, going more than five years and three months without a reportable incident. We are able to build on this sterling record by having dedicated training sessions, daily safety meetings, tool box talks and simply the pride of all our employees in being safe. We average more than 135,000 production hours each year!
This is the second and third safety awards we’ve won this year. We were recognized by NRC in January as a Gold Level Safety Organization.
