6MM Hour Safety Milestone

In June 2018 Anvil reached a significant milestone in our history: 6 million hours worked with no lost time. Safety doesn’t happen by chance – it requires that all of us pay careful attention. It’s taken over 7 years to reach this milestone. We achieved it because each of us stayed focused on performing our work safely and reporting and mitigating any possible hazards.

Safety doesn’t happen by chance – it requires that all of us pay careful attention. It’s taken over 7 years to reach this milestone. We achieved it because each of us stayed focused on performing our work safely and reporting and mitigating any possible hazards.

At Anvil, Safety is a culture, not just a commitment…It is first, last, always, and in all ways.

Reaching this 6 million hour milestone is a testament to Anvil’s safety culture, which includes:

  • Employee Stop Work Authority Program
  • Anvil Target Zero Safety Recognition Program
  • Dedicated and active Employee Safety Committee
  • Strong management commitment to workplace safety

Congratulations to the entire Anvil team on this tremendous safety record!

Anvil Employees Participate in Engineers Without Borders

Anvil employees have been participating in Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB-USA) since shortly after its founding in 2002, working to enhance the lives of others by improving the living conditions of those in developing countries.

Anvil employees have been participating in Engineers Without Borders USA (EWB-USA) since shortly after its founding in 2002, working to enhance the lives of others by improving the living conditions of those in developing countries. Anvil’s Mike Moora and other members of the EWB Alaska Professional Chapter  (EWB-APC) recently traveled to Malawi to begin assessment of a new water treatment and distribution system for a local community. When completed, this project will enable the distribution of clean water to several thousand villagers.

The Alaska Chapter has been supporting Malawi Children’s Village (MCV) and Open Arms Infant Home since 2008.  In 2012, they commissioned a new treatment system to provide safe drinking water to over 500 students and staff at the facility. Moora and the EWB-APC team provided design, procurement, construction management, and operator training to MCV staff to own and operate a fully functioning water treatment system that provides safe drinking water for the community.

We are very proud of our employees who volunteer their time and skill to change the lives of others and build strong and sustainable communities around the world.

We’re honored to donate to a great cause and provide a glimpse of joy and happiness to many families during a difficult time.

About the Ronald McDonald Seattle House

The goal of the Ronald McDonald house is “to help families focus on their child’s healing – so we ensure families don’t have to worry about basics like a place to stay, where they will find their next meal, or where they can take a shower.” The Seattle House started in 1983 with just 20 rooms and has since been renovated to now serve up to 80 families per night. The Seattle House has provided over 28,000 nights of housing to nearly 500 families per year whose child is receiving treatment at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
