Project, Inc. achieved a safety milestone last Tuesday – 400 work days without a loss of time injury! That equates to roughly 1 year, 7 months, and 8 days on the calendar since the last loss time injury. Almost every guest who tours Project, Inc. notices this board and comments on its significance. We place great importance on the safety for those in our care.
Thank you to all who were able to attend our recent Rock the House event!
