Deep South Named Houston Safety Excellence Finalist; Top Recognition 5 Years Running
Deep South Crane & Rigging is proud to announce we were selected as a finalist for the Houston Business Roundtable’s 33rd Annual Houston Safety Excellence Award in Crane & Rigging Support.
The HBR award is especially meaningful to Deep South because it requires nomination by one of our customers. Also, the category award winners from each year become Mentors — the highest honor a company can receive in the program — for the next year, working with other contractors throughout the evaluation process. Following our Best of the Best Awards in 2016 and 2018, we served as a Mentor in 2017 and 2019.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 health and safety protocols prevented the organization from conducting final field evaluations to audit and score the finalists’ on-the-job safety programs.
Nothing is more important to Deep South than the safety of our team, partners and customers. And while we all looked forward to the possibility of another Best of the Best Award, we’ll continue to do what earned us the HBR finalist designation: lift our customers’ expectations and make safety the foundation of every success.
Cantilever Beam Approach Helps Ease Exchangers Into Place
Deep South used a cantilever beam, which incorporates a compact counterweight design with customizable rigging attachment points, to move eight 118,000-pound exchangers into position under an existing steel structure at a refinery optimization project in the Southwest.
