In late April, the Specialized Carriers and Rigging Association announced that Maxim Crane received three safety awards, making this their third year in a row for receiving multiple safety awards for their phenomenal performances. In the Crane and Rigging Group, Maxim received the overall Safety Award and Safety Improvement Award for having below industry averages of injury and incident rates. In the Transportation Group, they received the Transportation Fleet Safety Award for having an outstanding driving safety record for the year. Furthermore, the Maxim team drove over nine million miles across the nation and maintained a Department of Transportation Accident Frequency Rate below 0.45.

“It says a lot to receive an award from a prestigious group like SC&RA for safety excellence. We are over 1500 cranes and 2000 employees strong, and it is nice to see above all safety is our highest priority,” stated by President of the Southeast Alan Ashlock who accepted the award on behalf of Maxim Crane. The Maxim team is determined about continuously improving their safety performance overall, and their safety program displays their diligent efforts as a company.

“Maxim Crane is committed to our focus on safety,” stated President Frank Bardonaro. “Our fleet management strategy and dedication to investing in our team members is the primary foundation of our success,” he added. “Safety is our key focus, and we are dedicated to ensuring that our employees and customers operate with safety as the number one factor each and every day.” President of Central Region Randy Johnston added, “We view our safety culture as a condition of employment here at Maxim Crane and follow up with our employees to assure their understanding of the responsibility they obtain to prevent any unsafe situations without any negative fall outs. This idealistic theory is backed by management at the highest level, and has led to stellar safety performance.” Maxim Crane currently maintains a significant average of 0.43 Experience Modification Rating, further exemplifying their industrious efforts towards safety performance.

“These awards show the level of commitment from our entire team towards our safety culture philosophy,” Maxim Crane Vice President of Safety Troy Wagner said. “We believe our employees are the best in the industry and they put safety ahead of everything else.” Wagner continues with the team’s appreciation of their recognition from the organization, and how extremely proud of each and every one of their employees for their efforts in making it happen.
