THE THREE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS ARE SAFETY, SAFETY, and SAFETY.
At Kimmins, safety is so much a part of who we are that it goes without saying: people are our most important asset. Our most important duty as a company is to provide our employees with a safe and healthful workplace, one that they can be proud of and return home from every day the same way they came in.
As a testament to our commitment to safety, Kimmins has received numerous safety awards over the years from Liberty Mutual Insurance and key clients such as Mosaic and PCS. These awards were for achievements such as years without a lost-time accident, or having injury rates 80% or more below industry average.
KIMMINS ANNUAL SAFETY CALENDAR CONTEST
Each year we hold a contest for all the children of our employees to make a drawing of why their parent should work safely. We select the top twelve entries for inclusion in our calendar. The winners get $100 gift cards and the grand prizewinner also gets a $500 scholarship. All non-winning kids get a $25 gift card. So everybody’s a winner!
KIMMINS ANNUAL “SAFETY DAY” AWARDS LUNCHEON
For one day each year, we shut down operations company-wide so that all employees can come to our safety awards luncheon. We give awards to all employees who have gone the entire year without an accident on their crew.
