PENTA Building Group
Lee Phillips - Safety Manager
Just celebrating our 15th anniversary in business in town. We started off with small things and now we’re doing work up in Tahoe, Reno, and then southern California, Arizona, and just finished up work in Oklahoma. I've been involved with SCATS my entire career. We utilize on every one of our projects in Nevada, and especially down in southern Nevada, where most of our workers are in the state. The people at SCATS are more than helpful. That is probably one of the best things with them is that they do keep us up to date in changes in the policies. They don't understand it or are not quite sure, [they] just tell me, “Hey, let me call you right back, let me go down and check something to be sure.” I mean that in itself, is worth everything out there in the field is having that type of a resource for you. PENTA puts safety over everything else - overproduction and over quality. From the conception of embracing safety as a primary, and then bringing SCATS on board with everything that we do, and then the continual training with not just the safety managers in the field, but also with our project engineers or project managers and our superintendents - it's definitely made a major difference in where PENTA is today from where it started and it's going to do nothing but continue to excel at the rate it’s going.
