"We continually emphasize the importance of safe behavior and strive to develop a mindset and culture focused on safety. Our employees are our greatest asset. We are proud to have built one of the best safety records in the industry and work passionately on our safety program with the goal of achieving zero harm to our people."

Mr. Terver continued, "Having a month filled with activities for our employees and their families is a great approach to reinforce safety in an interesting and fun way. By all accounts, the campaign was a tremendous success and we are looking forward to next year’s event."
