The award — the 12th for the company — was presented at the National Safety Council - Nebraska’s annual Celebration of Safety Luncheon on Wednesday afternoon.

“Once again, Lyman-Richey employees have demonstrated their commitment to safety and have earned this recognition,” LRC Safety Director Allen Myers said. “I’m proud of everyone for working together toward this goal.”

The council uses a formula to award companies with the Safest Company designation. That formula figures the averages of incidents, lost time, and DART rates and compares the numbers with the averages of the industry. Those results are also weighted over the last three years of submitted OSHA 300 logs.

“To be consistently ranked among the top of our peers and industry speaks volumes to our employees’ commitments to not only safety, but a real commitment to each other,” Myers said.

Since the company’s acquisition by CRH last year, Lyman-Richey’s safety team has been working hard to take the safety culture to an even higher level. In March, the company was honored for achieving 1 million work hours without a lost-time injury.

This year’s keynote speaker was Jacy Good, who survived an accident with a distracted driver and now speaks about cellphone-free driving.
