Zartman Construction employees reach safety milestone
NORTHUMBERLAND, Pa. — Zartman Construction, Inc. is celebrating two employees who have earned a covetous safety award.
Andrew Switzer and Michael Shepley are the first recipients of the company’s 50,000 hour safety award. The pair have each achieved the equivalent of 25 years worth of safe conduct.
Switzer, crane supervisor, has been with the company for 34 years and Shepley, operator, has been with the company for 31 years.
“Safety is a key part of what we do,” says president David Zartman. “It is important for us to not only instill safety consciousness in all of our employees but also reward those who go above and beyond to ensure a safe work environment.”
Zartman offers this awards program to employees and is based on hours worked without an OSHA recordable injury. The program is overseen by the company’s state certified safety committee.
“Both of these gentlemen are outstanding,” says Jerry Wolfe, Safety and Risk Management Director. “They both put safety as their top priority in all aspects of their work and are a great example for other employees.”
