Do you remember what you were doing April 9, 2014? UConn fans celebrated their second of two basketball titles in as many days, and Colowyo Mine started on their way toward more than 800,000 hours without a lost-time accident. Because of their daily dedication to safety, Colowyo’s 212 employees are being recognized for not just those two years, but also for one full year with no reportable incidents.
Colowyo Mine’s health and safety manager Stephen Laramore explained that “the hazards on the big jobs and bad weather days are obvious and easier to recognize. Trying to keep complacency from drifting in when you’re doing the same job you’ve done hundreds of times is the real challenge.”
Tri-State would like to extend our congratulations to everyone at Colowyo for their commitment to keeping each other safe in this unique and difficult work environment – here’s to another two years of greatness!
