UPE is Semi-FInalist for Governor's Award for Safety Excellence
United Prison Equipment, President, Marc Smith and the United Prison Equipment team were presented with a Semi-Finalist Governor's Award for Safety Excellence from the Department of Labor recently. This award recognizes United Prison Equipment's commitment to providing a safe working environment for Pennsylvania workers.
The award illustrates United Prison Equipment's successful implementation of comprehensive accident and illness prevention programs and practices for UPE employees and contractors. As a detention equipment contractor, this is a difficult award to achieve without a strategy for implementation of safety practices and a highly qualified and dedicated team of employees who put safety and quality craftsmanship above all else. United Prison Equipment's goal is to be the winning finalist for this award and is very proud of our staff for their continuous efforts to provide the safest working environment in the detention equipment industry.
