First Move Forward
Every light-duty company vehicle will back into parking spaces when they are able. They also have a small orange cone that is put out on the passenger side of the hood of the vehicle when the vehicle is parked. When the driver returns to their vehicle they pick up the cone and perform a walk around the entire vehicle before moving again. This is a reminder of your surroundings and what conditions may have changed since the driver parked their vehicle.
Green Book (JHA)
All of our plant sites and field crews utilize our Green Books. Within the Green Books, they perform a daily JHA (Job Hazard Analysis) including hazards, hazard abatements and daily emergency action planning. Each employee on the crew is involved and signs acknowledging they have been made aware of the items listed in the Green Book for the day.
Green Cone Program
Each job site has green traffic cones. The crews put these out daily on each job to identify a potential hazard. They will be using these cones to identify things like overhead power lines, hazards on the ground, walkways etc.
These employees were selected by the Safety Department and their Supervisors because they exemplify our safety program and culture while ensuring our production continues to move forward. In addition to the above, these individuals lead by example with zero at-fault accidents or injuries and adhering diligently to our Covid-19 policies and procedures. They set the standards and lead by example at job sites, plants, shops,and offices, day in and day out. Every one of them is a hard worker who performs their jobs effectively, efficiently and safely. These special employees are given a coveted black hard hat to signify their accomplishments. If you see them out and about be sure to give them an “air” high five!

Jason Channon and Mike Seymour
For keeping their eyes open and watching out for others we commend Jason Channon, a Mixer Operator, and Mike Seymour, Outside Concrete Sales Rep. Mike Seymour was leaving work one afternoon when he witnessed one of our mixer drivers, Jason Channon, alert an RTD bus driver that had left the handicap ramp out while driving down the road. Jason was in front of the bus, and when they stopped, he safely ran back to speak with the bus driver and alert him of the ramp being down. Had this interaction not occurred it’s possible someone could have easily been injured or killed, or damage to automobiles or property sustained. It would’ve been very easy for Jason to look the other way and just keep going, but he was proactive. Mike Seymour pulled over and informed our Safety Manager, Gerardo Orozco, what was happening. It was no surprise to anyone within the Brannan organization that it was Jason Channon. He has been a driver for Brannan Ready-Mix for several years and also won the annual safety award. He is a dedicated employee and it shows daily with the way he represents Brannan Companies. Thank you Jason Channon for exemplifying safety in real life and thank you to Mike Seymour for acknowledging the good work of a fellow employee!
Miguel Arzola and Anthony Ramos
Miguel and Anthony came up on our drive cam system after they hit a small bump. Everything was fine but what caught the eyes of our safety manager was that both the drivers were following our COVID training protocol and wearing their masks while in the cab together. They are to be commended for abiding to our policy and representing Brannan Companies while out in the public as essential workers. They were both awarded gift cards. Great job to both of them and thank you for leading by example!
