Manhattan Construction Receives National Safety Honor
TULSA, Okla. – The National Safety Council (NSC) has awarded Manhattan Construction Company the 2011 Occupational Excellence Achievement Award. The award is bestowed annually by the NSC to firms that demonstrate safety excellence.
In 2010, Manhattan achieved a perfect safety record with zero lost work days due to injury or illness nationwide. Even more impressive is that the firm logged nearly one million work hours during this period. The lost work day rate is a key factor in the criteria for the award.
Oklahoma Safety Council Executive Director Dave Koeneke said, “It is refreshing to see an Oklahoma-based company recognized for outstanding safety through the National Safety Council’s Occupational Excellence Award. This recent achievement demonstrates a solid commitment to safety. Not only is it the right thing for Manhattan to do to protect its most important assets – human beings – but it also results in significant cost savings for the company. Manhattan employees should be very proud of this accomplishment.”
