Warren earns

business certificate

Gregg Warren, manager of safety and assets at ATMC, recently received the Construction–Manager of Environmental, Safety and Health (MESH) certificate.

The certificate is sponsored by the Safety and Health Council of North Carolina, N.C. State University and the N.C. Department of Labor.

“We are tremendously happy to recognize Gregg as a recipient of the MESH certificate,” said Cherie Berry, North Carolina’s Commissioner of Labor. “This program prepares managers for keeping their worksites safe and healthy, and that preparation improves employee protection and company productivity.”

Allen Russ, ATMC CEO/general manager, added, “Gregg is dedicated to putting safety first and is committed to providing a safe working environment for our staff. We congratulate him on this achievement.”

Warren is one of only two people in North Carolina to have received this certificate.

The MESH program is designed to increase the professionalism of environmental, safety and health managers of commercial, residential or governmental construction sites in North Carolina through a rigorous series of continuing education programs.

The MESH program strives to recognize environmental managers and raise industry standards and increase the value of these practitioners to their employers and others to whom their services are provided.
