In October 2023, Manson received the 2022 American Equity Underwriters, Inc. (AEU) Safety Award—for the third time in the last five years.

Out of 1,700 companies that partnered with AEU, Manson was named one of the top 30 companies with the most effective safety programs and safety culture in 2022. Heavy Lift and Marine Superintendent Drew Edwards accepted the award on Manson’s behalf from AEU’s Senior Vice President and Director of Loss Control Jimmy Burgin.

Manson President and CEO John Holmes reflects on the award saying, “We appreciate our partnership with AEU and their recognition of our safety culture with this award. Congratulations to the Manson team for their efforts and continued commitment to preventing injuries.”


Strengthening our employee relationships across regional offices and jobsites was the goal of Manson’s participation in Construction Inclusion Week in October.

The annual week-long event encourages construction personnel to unite and build an inclusive culture that empowers innovation, communication, and connection between everyone.

Manson launched a five-day interactive program for personnel to discuss important topics, including Inclusion, Belonging, Small Business Diversity, Workplace Culture, and Community Engagement. The activities sparked powerful conversations within Manson’s workforce, encouraging employees to build a supportive culture.

“Construction Inclusion Week is important as it provides the opportunity to evolve our work culture by educating and bringing awareness to what inclusion and a sense of belonging means,” says Renee Williams, West Coast Regional Business Manager. “Manson benefits when employees begin to feel like they have a voice, and their participation has value. This leads to better retention and everyone’s growth both professionallyand financially.”
