The NCHCA health and safety committee winner of the award for safety excellence for September 2017: Karson Group.
Karson was hired to perform custom crushing on site. There was a lot of 3rd party activity and the site was on a major haul road. A barrier preventing access to the crusher spread was moved allowing traffic to possibly enter the crushing spread area without authorization. Gary Klages noticed the harzrad and notified the supervisor to get the barrier reinstated. By replacing the site barrier Gary prevented unwanted acces to the operating area of the crushing spread. This prevented a possible incident and or injury
