DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY CONTRACTOR RECOGINIZED FOR SAFE WORK PERFORMANCE
OAK RIDGE, Tenn. – At a safety recognition event June 30, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge Office (ORO) celebrated Pro2Serve’s four millionth work hour without a lost-time injury.
Pro2Serve, a local technical and engineering services firm, was recognized at the event for extending its exemplary safety record to 14 years of no lost-time injuries. The company’s record dates back to 1996 when its operations first began. The contractor performs work primarily on the Oak Ridge Reservation, providing construction and engineering support to various program activities managed by DOE.
“Having a contractor in the field with a strong commitment to safety is invaluable. Pro2Serve’s safety record is proof of their commitment as they perform work essential to Oak Ridge,” said ORO Manager Gerald Boyd.
In addition to Boyd’s congratulatory remarks, the event included an address by Pro2Serve Chairman and CEO Barry Goss and a plaque presentation to the company’s management and workforce for their safe work.
Upon receiving the recognition, Goss said, “There is nothing more gratifying in our business than knowing that our employees return home safely each day.” He continued, “Since the founding of this company more than 14 years ago, we have not had a lost time accident.”
In closing, Pro2Serve’s President Mark DeGraff said, “This achievement is a testament to all Pro2Serve employees, the culture they have developed, and the dedication they bring to work every day.”
