Posted by AXEL on Nov 13, 2020 2:51:27 PM

On October 8, 2020 AXEL in Tulsa, Oklahoma celebrated one year with no OSHA recordables. While AXEL’s commitment to safety starts with leadership, it must be supported by our employees. The Tulsa employees picked up the proverbial safety culture torch and never looked back. Each employee, from management to our temporary staff, plays a huge role in driving the safety culture on a day to day basis. Along with that drive, AXEL ensures employees are provided the necessary tools and resources to be successful. Examples include safety initiatives like “I see it, I own it, I act”, on-going training, personal protective equipment, policies and procedures, and open lines of communicators to voice EHS concerns or needs. The Tulsa employees were presented with hard hat stickers signifying their 1 year accomplishment along with a banner that each employee signed to be proudly displayed.
