Miller-Valentine Celebrates Outstanding Safety Record

Miller-Valentine Group announces it has reached a safety milestone: more than 945,000 work hours without incident (as of 3/31/16). In honor of this significant achievement, company officials hosted a special recognition event on April 20, providing its commercial construction field Associates with new safety boots.  Safety Shoe Distributors brought 65-70 different boot styles to Miller-Valentine Group for Field Associates to select a new pair of work boots.

“This achievement is a reflection of the hard work and level of commitment of our Associates who have driven our success for over fifty years,” noted Bill Krul, Chief Executive Officer. “At Miller-Valentine we cultivate a culture of safety throughout the organization; we make it a priority on every project.”

Bill Burke, Safety Director, leads the safety program for Miller-Valentine Group.  Burke, a 22-year industry veteran, and certified OSHA outreach instructor is frequently invited by industry leaders to speak about safety topics at educational events. “It all starts with management commitment,” said Burke. “Management has to challenge all Associates to apply, train, inspect and monitor safety practices in order to ensure safety on construction job sites.”
