Armed with the knowledge gained from the law seminar we went about "getting our house in order."  We realize that a ZERO Citation inspection does not happen by luck, it takes hard work and commitment to safe production; that's how you get to be known as a World Class Safety Organization.  For their hard work the Puunene Quarry Crew and Quarry Supervisor, Keoni DeRego (Safepro Law Seminar graduate) were presented with the traveling Hawaiian Cement MSHA ZERO Citation Inspection Award by Hawaiian Cement' HAW. Cements President, John DeLong (Safepro Law Seminar graduate).  In addition, the Puunene Quarry crew were treated to a good old fashion Steak Fry prepared and cooked by John DeLong, Jason Macy, V.P. of Operations (Safepro Law Seminar graduate), Dave Gomes, Maui’s General Manager (Safepro Law Seminar graduate), Keoni DeRego, Quarry Supervisor and Sean Haggerty, Safety Manager (Safepro Law Seminar graduate).  The Waikapu Quarry Crew was treated to a pizza and soda lunch…but they’re holding out for the steak fry when the contested citation goes our way.


Much mahalos Frank for your support and assistance.
