The award, part of PLANET’s annual Safety Recognition Awards Program and sponsored by CNA, honors those companies with thorough, high-performing safety programs that create and maintain safe work environments in the green industry. It is designed to reward green industry companies that consistently demonstrate their commitment to safety.
Dennis’ 7 Dees was evaluated on number of accidents, number of days that employees were away from work, and number of employee injuries and illnesses. In addition, a checklist was used to rate the company’s complete safety program.
As David Snodgrass, President of Dennis’ 7 Dees said, “We have always recognized the importance of a safe work environment for our employees and customers. Our safety program started with stretching every morning and that has literally driven and grown our safety program, which has now become part of our company culture. We have an active safety committee that involves people in all our departments. Safety is a topic at every company meeting. The continued recognition of our safety record is a testament to this.”
Dennis’ 7 Dees has been a local family owned and operated landscape contractor and garden center in Oregon since 1956. The company offers a complete range of residential and commercial landscaping services, including installations, patios, decks and walls, water features, lighting systems and maintenance.
