Riekes Equipment receives “Nebraska’s Safest Companies” Award

The Celebration of Safety is an annual event hosted by the National Safety Council – Nebraska Chapter to recognize companies and individuals who don’t take shortcuts with their safety.  This year 114 companies will be honored virtually as Nebraska’s Safest Companies for their dedication to outstanding safety programs. These companies have implemented safety initiatives designed to reduce injuries and save lives.  

Riekes Equipment has an exemplary safety record that is better than the national average compared to their industry classification and will be recognized at the event for a second time.

“During this time of unprecedented change and uncertainty, one thing still remains certain… Now is not the time to take shortcuts with safety. Winning a Nebraska’s Safest Company Award clearly illustrates a company’s commitment to ensuring that their team members return home safely to their families at the end of each workday,” said Eric Koeppe, President/CEO, National Safety Council – Nebraska Chapter.

The “Nebraska Safest Companies” Award validates those efforts.”
