P. J. Keating 2018 Kick Off!

It was an exciting week here at PJK last week!

On Tuesday, February 27th we held our annual Operations Kick-Off with a follow up day of MSHA training on Wednesday, February 28th. Both days were a great success! We gathered together to celebrate the start of the season and hear about P. J. Keating’s plans for 2018.

Our President Jonathan gave us a review of PJK’s 2017 and how we’re looking to improve in the coming year, as well as our Safety Goals for 2018 because safety is just as important as production!

Kelly, our HR manager gave us a rundown of the harassment and employment policies at P. J. Keating to make sure that we maintain the best work environment possible for our employees.


Our Environmental Health and Safety Manager Kendra then walked us through the new PJK Safety Manual. The Environmental Health and Safety team have been hard at work rewriting them. New words, but our #1 goal is always the same!



At MSHA training on Wednesday we heard from various Safety and Quarry Personnel regarding best practices to keep everyone at P. J. Keating safe, and reviewing MSHA policies and how they relate to our quarries and job sites specifically.

Ken and Kyra from Fit4Work gave us some stretching and exercise tips to keep everyone limber, and Billy Simas walked us all through CPR and Defibrillator training in case of emergencies.


The PJK Operations Kick off was a great success! We look forward to the Construction / Asphalt Kick off meeting on March 20th. Please keep a look out for you invitations in the mail.
