Midwest Mole, Inc. was honored by the Metro Indianapolis Coalition for Construction Safety (MICCS) with the Zero Injury Award for having no recordable injuries in 2012. This is the first time Midwest Mole received the MICCS Zero Injury Award.
This recognition is given to companies whose employees have not suffered a work-related incident resulting in loss of consciousness, restriction of work or motion, transfer to another job or requiring medical treatment other than first aid for the past calendar year. Out of 278 member companies, only 18 were recognized for zero injuries.
“At Midwest Mole, safety is at the center of the company’s culture. The phrase “Safety first, quality second and production third” is more than a slogan. It is how Midwest Mole conducts its business,” said Midwest Mole corporate safety director Brent Grandidier. “A lot of work goes into achieving these awards of distinction. All of our policies, procedures and efforts contribute toward an end result of zero injuries. But our main attribute in achieving zero injuries is our hard working employees, who always put safety first.”
Grandidier accepted the award on May 2 at the 20th annual MICCS Awards Banquet, May 2 at the Indiana Convention Center.
