Darrel Heil, LBC maintenance supervisor, remarked, “From work to friendship, working with our local HMT Team is a pleasure. Our local HMT Team presented the REACH program at our Global Safety Day. I had some contractors reaching out the next morning wanting more information on HMT’s REACH program. I was very happy to share the information with them and proud that it was presented at our event.”

Additionally, the team had the chance to showcase all lines of their business through a trailer presentation, reinforcing their commitment to safety across every aspect of operations. It was an excellent opportunity to demonstrate their dedication to excellence and solidify their reputation as global industry leaders.

The event was further enriched by shared meals and conversations, strengthening the bonds between HMT and LBC teams. The camaraderie and mutual respect underscored the importance of collaboration in achieving safety milestones.
