2018 Rising Stars of Safety
The National Safety Council presents the Rising Stars of Safety, Class of 2018
Brandon Tyler Batt
Manhattan Construction Co.
Washington, D.C. Division
“Brandon is actively working to change the mindset from ‘Safety First’ to ‘Family First.’ He recently started a jobsite program where each employee has the opportunity to sign a safety pledge to the project and to his or her family. With the pledge, employees bring in a photo of them with their family, and all photos are displayed in a collage to highlight how many people are affected by jobsite safety practices. He organizes team-building events where employees can get to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and includes new Manhattan employees when developing programs to gain fresh ideas regarding jobsite safety.”
