Montana State Fund honors On Site Management for worker safety

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN - A Bozeman company, On Site Management (OSM), was recognized Wednesday as being one of the safest in the county.

“On Site Management is receiving a check from Montana State Fund. Our board of directors has just declared a 40 million dollar safety dividend to safe employers,” explained Laurence Hubbard, president and CEO of Montana State Fund.

“On Site is one of the construction companies that we’re honored to present a $60 thousand check to because they demonstrated that they invest in and support their workers by making sure that they come to work safe and leave work safe as well. So we’re very proud of them,” Hubbard said.

On Site Management has worked really hard to implement this safety program.

“Well, that shows all the hard work that the company has done. The commitment of the owners, the connection with the workers that they’ve gotten on board with a very complicated and comprehensive safety program,” said OSM Safety Officer Noah Davis. “We’ve done a lot of training, which is way above the standard. Yeah, I’m real happy.”

Both owners of OSM recognize the importance of safety for each of their employees.

“I just think if anybody is questioning if safety is worth it, it certainly is. I think we’ve seen benefit after benefit within our company, implementing our safety program. It is worth it and a little extra effort goes a really, really long way to get in keeping people alive,” said Spencer Archer, project supervisor and principal owner of OSM.

“It means the recognition of a lot of hard work for us, not only from the management group but everybody out in the field, right down from the supervisors, right down to the laborers and we have 160 employees. And this really represents everybody’s effort to be safe,” General Manager and Owner Peter Belschwender said.

Gallatin County is ranked as the second safest county to work in Montana. Over 5 million dollars will be awarded to safe employers within Gallatin County by the Montana State Fund.
