So far this year, Richard Blanton has been recognized twice while working for long-time customer, Conoco Phillips. On April 11, Richard was on location purging flare lines when Conoco HSE arrived on location. They met with everyone onsite and handed out safety recognition awards, with Blanton receiving the award for lock out tag out of the location. On August 9, Richard was again recognized on location. Rich was spotting his trainee into place and noticed that the trainee was about to hit a guy line anchor. Rich used SWA and got him stopped before he hit the pole and anchor. Rich then took over driving and, with the help of the company man to spot him, maneuvered the truck safely away from the guy line anchor. Thank you for a job well done, Richard!
