w.w. clyde safety, safety fair, safety event, construction safety

Safe IMG_6393The 2014 W.W. Clyde & Co. Family Safety Event was held on Saturday May 24th at Boondocks Fun Center in Draper.

With a theme of “Safety by Choice, Not by Chance”, we had the opportunity to celebrate our commitment to the ideal that “Zero is Achievable! Zero Incidents, Zero Injuries, Zero Citations.”

Nearly 400 people came out to play. Outdoor activities, games, food, awards and prizes made for a great time for kids and adults alike. Not even the cloudy sky with intermittent rain could stop us from enjoying miniature golf, go-cart racing, bumper boat rides, laser tag and more. It was an excellent time to relax with co-workers in a non-work environment.
