NWP earns safety recognition
Nevada Wood Preserving of Silver Springs has earned the “Safe Partner” award from the Safety Consultation and Training Section of the state’s Division of Industrial Relations.
The award is based on employee and management participation in safety training and management-implemented changes to improve safety. Plant Manager Dan Young said the effort was led by Janie Silliman, its safety director.
The introductory 80-hour program — announced in May as one solution to Nevada’s oft-lamented skilled labor shortages — is designed to train people in construction, building maintenance and related trades.
