The Vecellio Group’s emphasis on safety is reflected in the safety records of its companies and divisions, with most seeing hundreds of thousands of hours worked with no lost-time incidents.
At the head of the pack, this summer Sharpe Bros. celebrated four years with no lost-time incidents. Employees were treated to a meal and several door prizes, including four flat screen TV sets and a Lowes’ gift card. A Travelers representative presented Sharpe Bros. with a plaque commemorating the achievement.
Also this summer, Vecenergy and White Rock logged two-plus years, while Ranger’s South Division and Vecellio & Grogan’s shop team, Beckley Equipment Repair, posted one and a half years without incidents.
“Safely is our most important job,” said CEO Leo Vecellio, Jr. “Let’s all keep working at it!”
