Fisher Sand & Gravel receives MSHA safety awards
Dickinson, N.D.-based Fisher Sand & Gravel Company, was recognized by the U.S. Deptartment of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), Rocky Mountain District, with three awards for outstanding safety achievements in 2008. The awards are for “man hours worked without any lost time accidents,” as well as for being “citation free” during two mandatory inspections.
Three Fisher sites were recognized: the Billings, Mont., site managed by Jim Rahr; the Glendive, Mont., site managed by Loren Boese; and one of the portable North Dakota operations managed by Joel Meyer.
“Safety is a top priority and is engrained in everything we do at Fisher Sand & Gravel,” said Tom Fisher, president of Fisher Sand & Gravel. “It takes commitment from every person on our staff for our operations to exceed safety practices and procedures, and we’re honored to have our dedication to safety be recognized.”
In addition to being recognized with the three industry awards, Fisher Sand & Gravel was honored with 13 Safe Mine Achievement Awards for 2008, also awarded by the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration, Rocky Mountain District. Five were certificate of honor awards, recognizing work hours performed without a fatal accident or permanent disability and work hours performed without incurring a lost workday injury. The remaining eight awards were Safe Mine Achievement Awards for efforts to reduce violations, accidents, and injuries.
