Recognizing Safety in the Workplace
Publication Date
May 4th 2020

Urban has had to adapt throughout its 60 year history. Changing regulations, stakeholder concerns, and technology have forced us to be innovative to continue to move forward. Our current time has been especially challenging, and tough choices have had to be made. Safety of our staff – above all else – is always a priority. For the month of May, we will be highlighting our staff and the steps they are taking to remain safe during these challenging times. Many have adapted to working from home, while others have made adjustments in the field. Here are some examples:

Many parents are challenged right now with not only filing their role of employee, but also of homeschool teacher. Urban is proud of staff – including Kate Mundie, a transportation marketing coordinator, working alongside her son – who are doing their best!

The National Safety Council suggests looking away from your screen often and following the “20-20-20 rule,” which says every 20 minutes, look at something about 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. Abbey Gancz, a highway engineer with Urban, looked away from her screen for this great photo!
