St. George, Utah September 12, 2017: Western Rock Products received an Award of Merit from the Utah Safety Council for outstanding safety performance.
“At Western Rock Products, our top priority is the safety of our employees and anyone that may enter one of our facilities, or projects, either as a customer, vendor, or the traveling public,” General Manager Derrick Pack said. “We are striving to build a safety culture where every employee is engaged and participates in the processes that ensure zero harm. These expectations and commitments are what makes Western Rock The Preferred Source.”
