The award regognizes companies that develop innovative ideas or achieve practical outcomes leading to improved worker safety in a roadway, plant site or quarry environment and whose safety practices are above and beyond normal safety practices.
Reeves Construction Company won the award for its new safety training video.

Reeves Construction Company is very proud of the video and everyone’s contribution to it’s creation. It’s fun to watch our own employees in it!
