In May 2020, the Brock Group was featured as the cover story for BIC Magazine, which reaches nearly 100,000 mid- and upper-level managers and executives in the refining/petrochemical, drilling and exploration, pipeline, marine, terminal, pulp and paper, power generation and heavy construction industries.
The focus of the article was Brock’s unparalleled dedication to safety. The company has a long history of bringing innovation to its industry. Today, the company continues this tradition through the design and implementation of safety systems, processes and products created to increase the safety of Brock employees, customer employees and other contractors on the jobsite.
“At Brock, we don’t just implement; we innovate,” explained Drew Ashcraft, Vice President — Health, Safety and Environmental, The Brock Group. “Brock’s Bbest culture is about being better every day, which means we are constantly looking for new tools and execution methods to keep our people safe. We partner with our vendors and suppliers to create new products that better serve our needs and the needs of the industry.”
Also highlighted in the article was the fact that in 2019, Brock achieved its best OSHA safety record in the history of the company, which began operations in 1947. The 2019 end-of-year TRIR was 0.18. This is calculated for all Brock-owned companies together and includes Brock-owned entities in Canada, which are not governed by OSHA. In addition, Brock currently has 18 VPP Star Site jobsites, which is about triple the number of sites held by any other contractor in a similar business.
“We are certainly proud of our current safety record and successes; however, looking back is not what we are about when it comes to safety,” explained Ashcraft. “Being in the now and looking toward the days ahead is where our concentration will remain. In 2020, we have a perfect vision with 100-percent focus on each and every task. Together, each of us will strive for no injuries, no near misses and no negative impacts on the environment, while also being smarter and more efficient about how we get that accomplished.”
