Don't be safety blinded, be safety minded!

June is National Safety Month, which focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities.  With over 100 employees, vendors, and drivers in our offices and at our Quincy, MA manufacturing facility daily, safety for all is always in the forefront of our minds at Twin Rivers.  To facilitate safe practices and encourages a culture that understands the importance of safety, Twin Rivers has a robust safety training program that is the foundation that protects our people daily.  

Our training program challenges our people to continuously be engaged to learn about the technical, safety and regulatory aspects of the operation.
