Shelly’s southern division has earned the CRH Americas Materials World Class Safety Award for 2018 for achieving a recordable incident rate of 0.18 while working 1,140,137 hours.
The Shelly Company subsidiary says the team had had zero lost time incidents, one recordable injury, and drove 2,849,023 miles with zero preventable fleet incidents.
Former Shelly safety manager Mike Arnold was also honoured with the Safety Director of the Year award.
In a message from CRH Americas Materials President, Randy Lake, the following was said about Arnold:
“Being a leader not only takes courage, but also the ability to motivate others, improve performance, and get results. Safety Mike’s drive and enthusiasm for safety helped the Southern Division achieve its best safety performance year, to date. Beneath his outgoing, jovial personality is a person who cares deeply about the safety of others and the success of the company. He came into a program that needed someone exactly like him. His ability to get everyone excited about safety was never a message of something that needs to be done – he made you want to be safe and do things correctly. With Safety Mike’s direction, the Southern Division was able to implement many processes from his light-hearted memes in his Weekly Safety Report to implementing and highlighting a weekly 5-S project, bringing the Southern Division to where it is today.”
In December 2018, Arnold accepted a new position for CRH’s Texas Materials as its new regional safety director.
