For the second year in a row, Meeker Sand and Gravel received the Mine Safety and Health Administration’s (MSHA) Safe Mine Achievement Award for 2008. The award is presented to a mining company in the Rocky Mountain District each year in recognition of its efforts to reduce violations, accidents and injuries. “It is really exciting to be chosen to receive the award, as only a handful are given out each year. The safety of our employees is our No. 1 priority and to be handpicked as a leader in safety in the industry is an honor. We received the award for 2007, 2008 and we’re working hard for a ‘three-peat’ in 2009,” said Katie Conrado, safety director for Meeker Sand and Gravel.
