Meet Daniel Abbott, a 2016 safety intern at CCC. In the fall, Dan will be a junior at Grand Valley State University where he is majoring in Occupational Safety and Health Management. He is one of two summer interns helping out in our Safety Department.
To date, Dan has been to GM Pontiac and Marathon construction sites where he has been observing day to day tasks, giving toolbox talks and doing site specific safety orientations for new hires. In doing toolbox talks and safety orientations, Dan has improved his public speaking skills. He has also learned specific things to look for and has gotten better at identifying things that aren’t right safety-wise. Dan saw a concrete pour and thought that was really interesting, especially knowing the background of where it comes from after the interns toured a concrete facility.
“So far, I really like CCC. They have a great safety culture and it is a common goal between everybody to make each jobsite as safe as it can be. Not only management but the workers on each site all work safely,” stated Dan.
Thanks Dan for choosing CCC to do a summer internship with.
