Along with Reynolds, Al Lacombe, Dupré vice president of safety and risk management, also attended the event.
“At Dupré, our team is committed to safety every day, every mile,” LaCombe said. “Safety is a way of life for us. We are honored once again to be recognized by our peers and clients.”

The National Safety Council’s mission is to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes, communities and on the road through leadership, research, education and advocacy.
The Occupational Safety Contest uses the total OSHA recordable incidence rate to determine the contest winners. The incidence rate is determined by multiplying the total number of OSHA recordable cases by 200,000 and dividing by the number of employee hours the company worked during the calendar year.
