Following the passing of John “Johnny B.” Barkowski in 2017, the F.H. Paschen Safety Committee decided to create a safety award in his honor. This award is given to one Paschen/Stalworth Operations staff member who best exemplifies our Safety and Quality Control Approach, and carries on Johnny B’s passion for safety and success in everything we do.
At our annual Spring Safety Picnic on May 23, 2018, the first Johnny B. Safety Award was presented to Jeremy Roach, Superintendent in the Civil Division.
“Jeremy began his career at F.H. Paschen 17 years ago as a laborer, at age 21. He was promoted to Labor Foreman, and became a full time Superintendent in 2016,” said Mark Barkowski, Vice President. “He consistently and passionately runs his projects with a high degree and emphasis on safety, and continually strives to increase his safety knowledge.”
The Johnny B. Safety Award will be presented at Safety Picnics hereafter, continuing the legacy of Safety, Quality, and Production that Johnny B. fostered during his time at F.H. Paschen.
