Day & Zimmermann Receives Second Consecutive Safety Award From TVA

Thursday, February 06, 2014

Day & Zimmermann (D&Z), a century-old, family-owned provider of construction and engineering, staffing and defense solutions for corporations and governments around the world, announced Thursday that it has received the Maynard Spence Safety Award from the Tennessee Valley Authority for the second consecutive year. The company was given the award for its maintenance and modification work on the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant.

This award is presented annually by the TVA to contract partners that achieve outstanding safety performance, and is named for Maynard “Hedgehog” Spence, an employee of Marsh & McLennan Companies who served as a Loss Control Consultant to TVA’s owner-controlled insurance program. He dedicated his career to jobsite safety on construction projects. Mr. Maynard died tragically in the World Trade Center attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and the award was created to honor his memory.

“We are proud to keep the memory of Maynard alive through our continued commitment to safety,” said Gary McKinney, president of Day & Zimmerman NPS. “This award is particularly important to us because safety is our company’s number one value. This recognition demonstrates that we are living that value at every plant and project we work on.”
