Our last All-Out Day for the year!
Last week some of our P. J. Keating employees braved the cold to go out and visit our crews for the last time in 2017. It’s a great time to wrap up the year of work, wish everyone a Happy Holidays and a safe Winter.
PJK Employees were really all over the state for this last All-Out Day of 2017! They made stops to our plants in Lunenburg, Acushnet and Dracut, as well as dropped by to see Marco’s, Carlos’ and Angelo’s crews in Franklin and Westport, Fernando and his Crew on RT 3 and the Ocean Spray Job in Middleboro.
Welcome to our Safety Award roundup for the month of September! Our crews were hard at work keeping P. J. Keating employees, crews and sites safe so we have many people to thank!
First we have Mandy Denio, our staff accountant, who was recognized with a Safety Award for her quick thinking in the Lunenburg office by reorganizing a large delivery all by herself which had posed a trip/fall hazard in our entrance way!
Dave DelGenio was awarded a Safety Award this month for his safe and effective Route 38 Water Pipe repair outside of our Dracut plant! He coordinated with Dracut DPW and had the repair finished with zero incidents.
Next up is Brian Quin and Eric Ward, who were both recognized with a Safety Award for their emergency repair on a safety belt at the Lunenburg Stone Plant. Emergency repairs on safety equipment is crucial for keeping the rest of the crews safe now and in the future, so we’re very thankful for their work and especially that they completed it with zero incidents!
Last but not certainly not least we have our first place Safety Award Winner, who we are happy to announce is Craig Thibault this month! He helped prevent an MSHA citation by assisting the operator of a haul truck with the proper operation of the emergency steering system when he was unable to activate it. Way to go Buzzy!
The CORE award is team or project-based award and the trophy is actually made in house with cores of HMA and aggregate from our QC lab to further reinforce the commitment to our business, how cool!
For their safety performance on the Weston Toll Plaza Project, our CORE award was awarded to Fernando Estrela and Ed Peterson! They were responsible for mobilizing equipment and crews across a 6 lane highway with multiple ramps and many obstacles and did so successfully and incident free over 45 shifts.
We are thankful for all our Safety and CORE Award Winners and all P. J. Keating employees who put safety first. Congratulations to all and lets hope for another safe month in this upcoming October.
Another All-Out Day!
Yesterday, August 23rd, 2017 we had 14 P. J. Keating employees participate in our monthly All-Out Day. It’s a great opportunity to get out onto the road, into the quarry or on the jobsite to visit with crews and see firsthand the hard work they do! It’s also a time for our teams to get to know the office staff and management, build connections and have chances to discuss and build relationships.
All four of the P. J. Keating plants and quarries were visited along with seven crews working throughout various locations in Massachusetts! Take a look below to see at all the photos taken during All-Out Day.
