FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ogden, Utah September 11, 2017: Jack B. Parson Companies received an Award of Merit from the Utah Safety Council for outstanding safety performance.
An organization must have an incident rate that is below the national average in order to receive an Award of Merit. The organization must also demonstrate improvement, or sustain an excellent record.
Jack B. Parson President Bob Rowberry said that the goal is for safety to be a lifestyle for all employees. “We at Jack B. Parson Companies feel it is a great honor to be recognized for our safety performance,” Rowberry said. “But more than the recognition, it is the safety culture that we try to embrace within our company, a culture not only at work but in our homes and around our families.”
Jack B. Parson Companies submitted three years’ worth of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Injury Information and was then ranked by their incident rate. There were only three total recordable cases within the three year period. One of the incidents occurred in 2014, and the other two occurred in 2015. One of the accidents that occurred in 2014 required employee time away from work. There were no recordable incidents in 2016. During the three year time-frame, there were 590,577 average man hours worked per year.
Jack B. Parson Companies also met all other safety program requirements. The requirements included (but were not limited to) holding quarterly safety meetings, having and following a safety and health program with a regular review, having a written plan, performing regular inspections, providing employee safety training on all OSHA-required topics, and not sustaining any work-related fatalities during the three year time frame.
