HAMMOND | The American Group of Constructors (TAG) hosted members of its staff and their families at its annual Safety Retreat earlier this month.
The event took place March 2 at Key Lime Cove in Gurnee, Ill., and was developed to discuss with employees the importance of safety both at work and at home.
“Renewed awareness of your commitment to safety affects more than just yourself,” TAG CEO John Marsch said. “It affects your family, your co-workers and their families.”
During the retreat, TAG recognized three employees in particular for their commitment to this idea. Larry Brookshire received an award for “Safety in the Trenches,” Jeff O’Rourke was named “Most Improved in Safety Excellence,” and Jason Rettig was honored for “Safety in Planning.”
“TAG relies on our supervision to direct and perform the work activities in a positive and safe work environment,” Ron Owen, TAG Vice President, said.
Featured speakers at the retreat included BP Contractor Liaison Ed Stevens, Ron Kurth, founder of Aquatics Underwater Recovery and Rescue Unit, Inc., Steve Bojan of HUB International insurance company, and Jim Bain, president of Falcon Performance Institute.
