“Safway is committed
to providing a safe work environment for ALL of our employees and customers,”

are our most important asset, and safety is paramount to our company and our
customers. Paul will work closely with our leadership team and employees
throughout the Safway Group to determine the best approach to behavioral-based,
metric-driven and sustained safety improvement.

“We’ve made a
significant advancement in our safety record over the past year,” adds Hayes.
“In the first quarter of this year, our Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR)
in the refinery market was 0.0. For North America overall, we had a 47 percent
reduction in recordable incidents over first quarter last year, and our TRIR
dropped to 0.83. We expect Paul to continue to build on this momentum.”

Amedee brings relevant

years in the safety field. Amedee has held leadership positions directly

developing safety plans and leading strategic initiatives. During his five

“I look forward to
enhancing Safway’s comprehensive safety management systems, processes and
procedures with the addition of new behavioral-based programs,” Amedee says.
“This will allow us to continue moving ahead and be the best in safety in our
industry.”
