According to Robert Billings, Joseph’s Storehouse warehouse supervisor, “People donate canned foods and hardly ever think about the hygiene, toiletry and dried goods, so this is a very welcome donation.”

“I am extremely proud of our team’s efforts in this worthwhile venture and very pleased to help out less fortunate families in our and surrounding communities.” stated Dave Terry, Site Manager over both locations.  “It was a great way to end our year of community service events and we look forward to continuing the tradition in 2018.”

Oldcastle Infrastructure Construction/Erecting Team Celebrates Impressive Safety Record

Oldcastle Infrastructure Construction/Erecting Team Celebrates Impressive Safety Record

Oldcastle Infrastructure employees complete over a year with no recordable workplace injuries.

Since November 11, 2016, Oldcastle Infrastructure’s Construction/Erecting Team of South Bethlehem, New York has gone without an OSHA recordable injury. A tremendous feat in the construction industry when speaking about ever changing job sites.

Having a unique scope of work, the Construction/Erecting Team works inside, outside, on the ground and on top of buildings in the cold, rain, snow and heat when erecting their precast concrete products. They travel to new sites each day and typically encounter uncontrolled environments with a new set of hazards.

“To be able to adjust to each situation, identify hazards, get the job done and have ZERO accidents is a huge accomplishment,” stated Shawn Biel, Assistant Field Manager of Oldcastle Infrastructure.

Field Safety Manager Benjamin Jump remarked, “Everyone in the field is doing a great job, from the Foreman, who coaches and selects the right men for the right task each day, to the newest employee, who knows they can ask questions and recognizes they will not be put into a situation they don’t feel comfortable in. Our safety training is not just once a year, but every day, and it shows.”

“Continually striving to create a safe and efficient worksite where there are no accidents and no one gets hurt is our goal,” stated Field Manager Patrick Maslyn. “We provide employees with the necessary resources, equipment and training to deliver according to their designated responsibilities.  The morning safety huddles, as well as our weekly online meeting where we share safety concerns witnessed on a particular job, help make us a “tight knit” group. Everyone on the crew is doing a great job looking out for the safety of their fellow crew members, in addition to other trade safety, on all jobs.”

“This is only the second time in the last 17 years that our Construction Team has gone without a recordable for a year which is a great accomplishment,” stated General Manager Chris Speck.  “The guys are really working as a team to keep each other safe and the results are an attribute to what can be done when everyone is and believes that they are responsible for safety.  I look forward to the Team’s accomplishments in 2018 as we continue to only get better.”

Oldcastle Infrastructure ensures that our companies provide a healthy and safe workplace for our employees and contractors, and take due care of all customers and visitors at our locations.

Oldcastle Infrastructure Perris Facility Attains 2 Years with Zero OSHA Recordable Injuries

No Oldcastle Infrastructure Perris employee has missed time, been restricted or transferred because of injury since October 2015

Another perfect year for employee safety for Oldcastle Infrastructure Perris, which operates one of Oldcastle’s prestress/precast manufacturing plants. The companies approximately 50 employees combined to work roughly 927,429 without any Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)‐recordable.

Due to extraordinary safety efforts, the Oldcastle Infrastructure Perris team surpassed the two‐year safety milestone on October 15, 2017.

Maintaining the highest standards of safety for our employees, as well as our customers and communities, is our top priority at Oldcastle Infrastructure. It’s essential in potentially hazardous work environments like ours, and every employee is dedicated to putting safety first.

Southern Cal Area Safety Manager Adriana Ramirez commented, “Two years of recordable free incidents is an amazing accomplishment!  The team has definitely come a long way from 5 years ago and their safety commitment has just gotten stronger!  There is a sense of family throughout the plant that is contagious and a joy to be around.   Great job Team!  Keep on going home SAFE!”

“I am very proud of the Perris team and the remarkable safety results over the past two years,” said Todd Ebbert Southern Cal Regional General Manager. “This is another example of a motivated team all heading in the same direction with the goal of viewing each task through the lens of safety and wellbeing for each member. Congratulations to the entire Perris group”

Perris Site Manager Scott Hicks added, “When we passed the one year mark a year ago we were overwhelmed with what an accomplishment that was. Now that we have made it two years we have come to understand that our achievement is monumental. It has only been possible through the collective efforts of our production crews, office personnel, and management that we have been able to accomplish this. Our production employees have been instrumental in our success by believing in themselves and looking out for each other daily. They care about each other not just as co‐workers but also like family. We are very proud to have reached this milestone and are looking towards making it another year injury free, one day at a time.“

Recognizing the team’s hard work and dedication to safety, employees and their families were treated to a day of carnival games, jump houses, face painting, and of course lots of catered food. Each employee was given a commemorative jacket and small pocket knife in honor of their pursuit of safety excellence.

Oldcastle Infrastructure Employees Volunteer at the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank

Oldcastle Infrastructure Employees Volunteer at the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank

The act of “giving back” means different things to different people. For some, it is a monetary issue, while others might view it as a matter of giving their time. However, for employees of Oldcastle Infrastructure Fredericksburg, giving back to the community manifested itself at a local food bank on October 7, 2017.

For approximately 3 hours, employees packed boxes that would later be distributed to low income seniors and individuals with disabilities.  The Oldcastle Infrastructure team assisted in the placement of canned goods into boxes as they moved down an assembly line. Planned for dispersal during the month of October, over 1,488 boxes were packaged. This volunteer opportunity was of particular importance to the Fredericksburg team, as many communities surrounding their plant are supported by the food bank.

“With all the tragedy of the recent hurricanes, we sometimes lose focus of the fact there are still people in our own communities who are struggling and in need of food and other assistance,” said Larry Ramsburg, plant manager of Oldcastle Infrastructure Fredericksburg. “It is amazing to see the impact that a few volunteers, donating a couple hours of their weekend, have on feeding families in need within our community.  Thanks to all of our Oldcastle Infrastructure family who participated in this much‐needed service to our community.”

Oldcastle Infrastructure Sales Manager Karen Brock commented, “Acting on an Oldcastle Infrastructure Core Value of helping our communities, we joined with other local volunteers working together for the common good.  It’s amazing what we can accomplish in the first two hours of a day, this quick assembly of care packages will impact many people in need.  It is also a privilege to take part in an organized expression of compassion and are glad we took the time to be here.”

The Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank serves Caroline County, the City of Fredericksburg, King George County, the Locust Grove community, Spotsylvania County and Stafford County as well as neighboring communities. We are members of Feeding America, a national organization supporting more than 200 Food Banks across the country and the largest domestic hunger relief agency in the United States.

Oldcastle Infrastructure Avon, Connecticut Volunteers Help to Fight Hunger

Working towards a hunger free community, Oldcastle Infrastructure Avon, Connecticut decided to partner with Foodshare, a well‐known and highly respected service organization in their community, located in Bloomfield, CT. Foodshare works hard every single day to help those who are struggling with food insecurity.

As part of their commitment, twenty‐four Oldcastle Infrastructure Avon volunteers met at Foodshares’ Headquarters and then at the Regional Market in Hartford on June 28th and July 29th. They spent the evening and morning sorting perishable foods, donated by local grocery stores, for immediate distribution to families in need.

“We plan on continuing to partner with Foodshare in the coming years. Just one volunteer shift served helps to ensure that more families will not have to go without food required to thrive,” said Troy Mittler, Regional General Manager at Oldcastle Infrastructure. “Moreover, Foodshare staff told our employees that they were the hardest workers they have had and were very impressed that they automatically cleaned up after the work was complete. Housekeeping is instinctive for our guys!  All volunteers received very positive feedback from their experiences. I commend our employees for volunteering for a good cause and supporting their community.”

Hunger is an invisible problem, so most people are unaware of how large the problem actually is. In Hartford and Tolland counties alone—the area served by Foodshare—there are 127,000 people who cannot be sure where their next meal is coming from. That includes one out of every six children in the area.

In June, Oldcastle Enclosure Solutions employees gathered to volunteer at the Houston Food Bank and do their part in the fight against hunger in the state of Texas. The corporate initiative was spearheaded to aid people with resources aimed at improving their quality of life and creating a hunger‐free community.

In addition to making meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the coming week, they cleaned out the hot and cold food storage bins, unloaded milk and ice pallets and packed pallets for food distribution to various locations who provide food for families and children. During their time, they helped provide over 14,000 meals!

The organization heavily counts on volunteers to make its mission a reality. “Not only was it rewarding giving back, but we also had the opportunity to learn about the different ways the Houston Food Bank contributes to the community,” noted Sean Dvoran, Plant Manager for Oldcastle Enclosure Solutions Houston. “They do a remarkable job in helping people in need and I was grateful to share this experience with my colleagues.”

Oldcastle Enclosure Solutions plans on continuing to partner with the Houston Food Bank in the coming years.

Every dollar donated to the Houston Food Bank provides the equivalent of three meals for an individual. The organization plans to grow to an annual distribution of 100 million nutritious meals by 2018. In 2016 it was 79 million meals.

Oldcastle Infrastructure Idaho Falls Receives OSHA VPP Star Recertification

Oldcastle Infrastructure’s production operation at Idaho Falls, Idaho has been recertified as an OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star Award level worksite, the highest level granted.

Working hard to retain and remain committed to their safety culture, Oldcastle Infrastructure of Idaho Falls earned recertification as a VPP Star worksite for 9 years in a row. They attained the recertification after a rigorous review of their written safety and health management systems, ongoing performance and thorough on‐site evaluation by OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) team of safety and health professionals. OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program is the government’s premier safety recognition program.

“The VPP program has pushed us to continually improve our EH&S and I know we are a better business because of it,” stated Cache Elzinga, Oldcastle Infrastructure Site Manager. “The Oldcastle Infrastructure‐Idaho Falls team is very dedicated to their safety program. They have willingly taken over the tasks of Program Managers, BBSO’s and helped to train and watch over one another so that everyone returns home to their families safely.”

“In addition, we would like to thank Eric Harbin, Northwest Regional Administrator with OSHA, for traveling to Idaho Falls and participating in our celebration and presenting the team with a new OSHA VPP Star banner,” said Cache.

Regional Environmental, Health and Safety Manager Ashley Reese remarked, “We are very proud to be able to continue our participation in the VPP Star Program with OSHA Region 10.  We have been an active participant in the VPP Star program since 2008.  This is a great testament to the dedication of our Idaho Falls Team towards Environmental Health and Safety Excellence.”

“One of our core values is employee well‐being,” stated Justin Burgess, local safety lead, during the award ceremony. “A strong safety culture, as recognized by VPP Star, is essential to living that value.”

Oldcastle Infrastructure Runs Colorado’s Largest Corporate Challenge

Oldcastle Infrastructure Runs Colorado’s Largest Corporate Challenge

Oldcastle Infrastructure joined Colorado’s largest Corporate Challenge by again participating in this year’s 12th annual Colfax Marathon Corporate Cup Relay, presented by Denver’s Kaiser Permanente.

What’s better than running 26.2 miles through the Mile‐High City? Sharing the miles with co‐workers! That’s what Oldcastle Infrastructure did. Three Oldcastle Infrastructure teams displayed their teamwork, camaraderie and community support by completing the Colfax Corporate Cup Relay Challenge. The Corporate Cup Relay has become a huge part of the event, attracting about 6,375 runners on five‐person teams, breaking the distance (26.2 miles) into five legs ranging from 3.5 to 6.5 miles.

Overall 19,000 runners participated in this year’s Colfax Marathon Event – The Ultimate Urban Tour – running the 26.2‐ mile marathon at an elevation of 5,280 feet, competing in the half marathon, the 10‐miler or the Corporate Cup relay. With over 201 charities involved this year, this unique event, The Colfax Marathon Corporate Challenge, brings together thousands of people every year to have fun, be fit, and raise money for charities.

“Involving employees for a team building event, in addition to supporting a local charity, are the reasons why Oldcastle Infrastructure continuously participates in this event,” stated Rachael Schanel, sales representative of Oldcastle Infrastructure. “This year we selected, H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Excel), a non‐profit program created by employees of the Arapahoe County Department of Human Services in Colorado, as the charity. This organization seeks to fill the needs of local individuals and families that can’t be met by formal welfare programs which provide goods and services to children who are victims of abuse or neglect, vulnerable seniors in the adult protection system, and struggling families and individuals in crisis.”

The Oldcastle Infrastructure Colfax Corporate Cup Relay Teams:
Team 1: Isaac Anthony, Dan Dodson, Jason Herrman, Nate McCready, Kevin Pittman (fill‐in for Andy Burke)
Team 2: Kyle Keaffaber, Devin Bybee, Emily Duewiger, Dave Steevens, Bob Kramer
Team 3: Chris Schneider, Whitney Wilberts, Kyle Wilberts, Rachael Schanel, Keith Yates

Each Team of five employees ran the 26.2‐mile Marathon Relay. Each team member ran a Relay Leg which varies in difficulty. The different Relay Legs were Leg 1: Urban River; Leg 2: No Groans at Sloans; Leg 3: Eclectic Mile High; Leg 4: Screaming Downhill; and finally Leg 5: Downtown River Trek.

The Oldcastle Infrastructure teams started and finished in Denver’s City Park. Ran through Mile High Stadium – home of the Denver Broncos! Ran through Denver Fire Station #1, along seven miles of rivers, lakes and bridges – including Sloan’s Lake. Raced through eclectic neighborhoods, historic Lakewood, the bustle of Colfax Avenue, and downtown Denver – with views of the majestic Rocky Mountains!
