The announcement comes during June’s 28th annual National Safety Month, a yearly event spearheaded by the National Safety Council that highlights specific key safety issues with a goal of building awareness of the leading causes of preventable injuries and fatalities in the workplace.

Jonathan Pledger, vice president of human resources and safety & training at Equipment Depot, championed the company’s milestone.

“We are the company we are today because of our dedication to our ‘safety-first’ mission,” Pledger said. “For an 85-year-old company to reach this level confirms that our team members actively strive to create a safer work environment for themselves and others—and I can’t be prouder.

“Our people are at the heart of our company. That’s why we have a motto: make sure people go home the way they came to work. The health, safety, and well-being of our staff and their families, and our customers have always been and will continue to be our top priority. We look forward to celebrating this achievement throughout the company on June 11, 2024.”
