Based In: San Angelo, TX
Reece Albert Inc. is one of the largest contractors in west Texas, with more than 450 employees working on projects for the Texas Department of Transportation, the United States Air Force, and the Corps of Engineers, as well as private and commercial jobs across the state.
Roger also commits his company to safety in all aspects. It’s so important that they shut down work for one day every year to hold a Safety Day, during which the company brings all the employees to San Angelo for a day of discussion on current safety topics, with speakers, door prizes, food, and more.
In the past, the company’s safety record wasn’t so great, so they created a safety program to improve Reece Albert’s accident and severity rates.
“Safety is the company’s paramount focus,” Odom said. “It’s a big part of our focus, and I think that should instill some pride in the company and make the employees feel like they matter. Ultimately it’s about making sure that the guy who is working hard out there gets to go home every night uninjured and see his wife and kids. It’s a job; you shouldn’t be putting your life on the line.”
