Telluride Gravel Attains Safety Milestone

United Companies’ Telluride Gravel plant in Colorado is celebrating an achievement of three million man-hours without a lost-time injury.

“This milestone is a testament to all of the tremendous professionals in our business,” Kyle Alpha, general manager of United Companies/Telluride Gravel, said. “It could not have been achieved without our employees’ dedication and commitment to our fundamental core family value of safe production.  We are fortunate to have the best in the business working for our organization.” 

At Grand Junction, Colo.-based United Companies, each employee is regularly trained from the day they on-board that safety is the number one priority. Employees are empowered to “See. Stop. And Do.” Each team member takes a personal pledge to accept their role in building the company’s safety culture.
