A Goal Worth CelebratingShare
On February 3, Weaver surpassed two years of no lost-time injuries throughout our divisions. That’s a major accomplishment in the construction industry, which continues to have one of the highest serious injury rates of all professions.
We were reminded how fast a serious injury can happen in our business several years ago when we nearly lost one of our employees in a roof fall. Ever since that close call, we’ve doubled down our safety efforts to ensure that our employees always remember to put safety before everything else.
Our Big Night Out
To celebrate our accomplishment, we chartered a bus and took everyone in the company to the see the Philadelphia Flyers play the Columbus Blue Jackets February 17. We were very pleased that 44 of our 48 employees were able to make the game. We shared three luxury suites, where we enjoyed dinner and drinks together and had a great view of all the action on the ice.
It was a fitting way to celebrate two years injury-free, since it gave us a chance to enjoy what matters most—our people.
Not Everyone Met Their Goals . . .
Sadly, the Flyers lost the game 5-2. It didn’t put a damper on our evening, though. It was a great trip and a rare chance for all of us to spend some time together without working!
