Midwest carpenters given award for safety
Posted by on

Congratulations to the Brothers and Sisters in Indiana, who recently earned recognition from ZISA (Zero Injury Safety Awards) for their cooperative focus on safety with contractors.

This year's top award --The Gold Star - goes to Solid Platforms, Inc., working with the Indiana/Kentucky Regional Council of Carpenters Northern Office at BP Products North America's Whiting Refinery in Whiting, Ind. At 2,569,267 hours, the three groups set a record for the most injury free hours ever worked. BP's Whiting Refinery is familiar with safety -- they also won last year's Gold Star award.

The Indiana-Kentucky Regional Council of Carpenters consists of 32 Local Unions representing Carpenters, Floor Coverers and Millwrights. They provide training to members at nine campuses in the two states.

If you're willing to let Union Solidarity trump regional sports loyalties for spell, check out the picture gallery on their website of Union Carpenters building the Lucas Oil Stadium, the brand new home for the Indianapolis Colts.
