12 May PREVENT Highlighted at Safety Summit
“When it comes to safety, PLH Group is number one. No other major contractor in the utility industry is more focused on safety than the PLH Group companies,” emphasized Mark Crowson, President and CEO of PLH Group at the opening of the PLH Group Safety Summit on November 19, 2013. PLH Group has established a national reputation of being safety oriented. The PLH Safety Summit’s purpose is to continue the focus on safety as a value and to ensure PLH’s success in 2014.
PLH executives, company presidents, safety and DOT compliance personnel, and representatives from various functional departments met for a two day summit covering topics from safety programs to regulatory requirements and best practices. The conference highlighted a PLH Group industry leading safety training tool developed by Matt Compher, Vice President of Safety for PLH Group. The program, called PREVENT, puts visual and practical teaching tools into the hands of every employee companywide using the latest technology – a QR Code linking you to a short video that can be viewed by personnel anywhere, at any time. Whether a refresher course is needed or on the spot training for new employees is being conducted, PREVENT is an excellent companywide safety tool.
The Second Annual Safety Summit was well attended by over 80 PLH Group company representatives. Matt Compher was pleased with the attendance, commenting, “The attendance at this year’s summit demonstrates the commitment that all the PLH Group companies have to ensuring the safest possible environment for our employees.”
