Proud Recipient of the 2019 J.J. Keller SPOTY Award!

Our company is a proud recipient of the 2019 J.J. Keller SPOTY Award in recognition of our safety manager, Jessica Flores!

The SPOTY (Safety Professional of the Year) is a nationally-recognized award that is given to safety professionals that build safety cultures in their respective companies.

Winners are chosen by a panel from among J.J. Keller’s 70-plus safety consultants and editors. This panel consists of highly-sought experts in matters related to environmental health and safety, including OSHA and Department of Labor standards and regulations.

Proud of Jessica Flores for SPOTY Award Recognition

Jessica received the SPOTY award based on her mastery of both OSHA and DOT safety knowledge. She used this knowledge to further develop and improve safety programs for our company in only 9 months, including an innovative safety training lab.

Our company began seeing results immediately following the implementation of safety programs, which led to a deeper level of commitment to safety throughout our facility.

“We are extremely proud of Jessica Flores for this award recognition,” says Gainsborough Waste president Noble Carl. “Jessica has done a tremendous job elevating our commitment to safety through the introduction of new safety programs, implementation of metrics and accountability, and overall safety care shown to each employee in our company.”

Jessica Flores received the SPOTY award along with two other professionals, Katherine O’Neal, EHS Advisor for Masco Cabinetry, and Chris Seider, Senior Safety & Risk Management Specialist with Foth & Van Dyke, LLC.

“We received many outstanding nominations for the SPOTY Awards. But our three winners rose to the top due to their remarkable commitment to workplace safety and also their vision and innovative approach to safety,” said Rustin Keller, president and CEO of J. J. Keller. “Ensuring employees make it home to their families every day is what J. J. Keller helps our customer companies do, and it is what these winners are doing.”

The SPOTY Award confirms that we are showing the utmost care to our employees, customers, and the communities where we work throughout the Greater Houston area. We appreciate the recognition for Jessica’s efforts leading the way for our company.
