“Our employees are the lifeblood of our company,” said American Infrastructure’s Chairman and CEO, A. Ross Myers. “We are dedicated to ensuring their safety each and every day and making sure that if they are injured on the job that the proper procedures are followed and they are able to return back to work when the time is right. We take employee injuries seriously and are honored to be recognized for our comprehensive program to prevent injuries and support employees when incidents occur.”
American Infrastructure’s “Home Safe Tonight” initiative is highlighted in the November issue of Risk & Insurance magazine, profiled in the August issue of National Underwriter Property & Casualty magazine and was featured at the Workers’ Compensation Education Conference in August as the result of winning these two awards.
