PLH Group Entities Recognize National Safety Month
Date: June 6, 2021
Whether high in the air or deep in the dirt, PLH Group entities are unified with one safety culture.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the National Safety Council (NSC) National Safety Month. This June, employees throughout PLH Group’s diverse business units focused on energy construction services together recognize National Safety Month.
For over 100 years, the National Safety Council has worked alongside companies throughout the United States to equip and empower employees to be safer at work. As a safety advocate, the NSC’s goal is that workers will use the safety concepts and considerations in their personal lives as well, making the United States a safer place for everyone. The nonprofit organization progresses to this goal with its values to: Be Safe, Be Bold, Be Impactful, and Be NSC. PLH Group is a strong supporter of the NSC and carries their message throughout its entities through its conferences, trainings, and safety observances, such as National Safety Month.
Snelson Companies kicks off their Go Home Safe pledge campaign.
“We talk a lot about safety, and it’s our #1 company core value. However, our commitment to safety must go beyond a company initiative, and we must all take personal accountability for ensuring ourselves and our co-workers Go Home Safe to our families every day,” added Chief Executive Officer Peter Sandore.
The campaign was designed to address all PLH Group employees, with specific initiatives geared toward office, pipeline, and electric employees.
A sample of these initiatives include:
- Actively look for workplace hazards and promptly report them
- Know office emergency plans and evacuation points
- Insulate and isolate; verify isolation before work begins
- Avoid cell phone use while driving, wear seat belts, and drive the speed limit
- Call before you dig
- Use hot work permits when welding, burning, or hot tapping
- Plan and design trenching and excavations to avoid cave-ins
- Inspect and use proper fall-protect devices
“Our Go Home Safe initiatives are not new concepts for our employees. They are the processes and procedures that need extra focus in the current environment,” added Elsie.
Employees who commit to Go Home Safe sign a pledge with their supervisor.
“Safety is the number one priority on all of our jobsites. Go Home Safe reiterates this commitment by asking each employee to not only ensure their personal safety, but ensure the safety of everyone throughout the jobsite. By getting ahead of the statistics, we can keep each other safe,” said Elsie.
