Award in Safety Excellence
June 11, 2015
Several institutions are weighing in on Egan Company’s commitment to providing a safe and healthy workplace for employees, and the results have been glowing.
These awards affirm the great strides we’ve made to uphold safety at Egan, but there is much more work to do in order to reach our ultimate zero-injury goal. We must continue to empower all employees to voice their safety concerns and promote the imperative need for safety at every opportunity.
– Jeff Hawthorne, Egan Company Senior Vice President
