Conway Corp is dedicated to doing things the right way, and we refuse to compromise the safety of ourselves, our co-workers or our customers. To honor that commitment, we recognize an employee each year for his or her safety efforts by recognizing an employee who inspires, improves and maintains best practices in safety.
This year, Wastewater Plant Operator Lance Harwell earned the company’s annual Safety Leadership Award. Lance was nominated by his fellow co-workers for going above and beyond his job duties in 2023.
Lance was nominated by multiple co-workers for his willingness to answer any questions or concerns as well as his attention to safety issues and protocols.
One nomination for him said: “Lance communicates concerns and helps keep others in his area informed. His attention to safety issues and concerns is noticeable even outside his department. He has made it his mission to make sure his co-workers are always in the know and heard when it comes to safety.”
Lance, an active member of Conway Corp’s internal safety committee, makes safety a priority each and every day.
“Lance is always willing to take the extra step to ensure that safety is a top priority for whatever task is being completed at the plant and also take the time to teach and promote safety to the new team members,” Water Systems Manager Lee Tedford said. “Lance has shown a great initiative at demonstrating safety as a core value not only for himself but also for his co-workers.”
Lance joined the company in 2006 as an operator apprentice at the wastewater plant. He was promoted to plant operator in 2009.
