Over 1 Million Hours Worked
“Our slogan is – Safety and Quality are # 1. For us here at Pipeworx this is not just our slogan, this is something we take pride in by demonstrating we live and believe in safety every day. In order to have a strong safety culture, it must be supported by everyone who works for Pipeworx. Most important is to have all employees go home at the end of the day to their loved ones,” commented President of Pipeworx Kelly Gillam.
Parent company PLH Group, awarded Pipeworx the coveted Safety Award based on the number of man hours worked (over 1 million category) and the TRIF (Total Recordable Incident Frequency) as calculated by OSHA. Pipeworx excelled beyond any other PLH Group entity in its category and surpassed previous year’s numbers. To compare, in 2013 Pipeworx worked 620,000 man hours and ended with a slightly higher TRIF. The 2014 low TRIF and high man hours demonstrated Pipeworx continued commitment to safety.
