Since century-old Williams Brothers Company began its first pipeline work in 1915 it has maintained stout job safety standards, but nothing quite as monumental as its current one million hour accident-free record.
Wilbros Group, Inc., the construction business arm of the original Williams Brothers Company, highlighted Wednesday night’s outdoor dinner on Cherry Street for the 600 workers involved in the ongoing 180-mile pipeline project from Fayetteville to Marks, Miss. by announcing its million hour accident-free achievement.
Randy Harl, the company president/chief executive officer, and a host of top echelon staffers treated Jimmy Wagstaff, the construction superintendent, with a saddle with an imprint of the one million hour accident-free notation.
“It took everyone of us to make it work. We couldn’t have done it with all of them,” Wagstaff told the hundreds of pipeline workers gathered under a tent dining on burgers, hog dogs and shrimp.
Harl said the Fayetteville Express Pipeline as the project is known began in Northwest Arkansas, will stretch over the top of the levees in Arkansas and Mississippi to Marks, Miss. once completed.
