I was given my wristband as part of our safety training at Skanska US Civil Midwest. Our office was closed early due to an ice and snow storm event. I was waiting to let an employee back into a secured door while they went out and started their vehicle so the windshield could start thawing. He was running on his way back to the building in an ice and snow covered parking lot so as not to make me wait. The V.P.of Operations, David Evans, saw what could lead to a potential nasty spill with serious injuries. He took the opportunity to explain the hazard and empasize that there was nothing more important than being able to return home in the same condition as we arrived. I presented my wrist band to David for actively caring for his employees.
