STAR Awards: Recent STAR Level 1 Award Recipients

AC&PPC General and Civil Superintendent Chris Vaden presents Field Site Supervisor Josh “Pockets” Bartholomew with a Level 1 STAR award.

Josh Bartholomew, AC&PPC
Josh Bartholomew, Field Site Supervisor for Ahtna Construction & Primary Products Company, LLC (AC&PPC), has received a Level I STAR Award in recognition of his commitment and contributions to workplace safety. Josh maintains a team culture that recognizes safety as a core value. He keeps the health, safety and welfare of his crew as his foremost consideration while accomplishing the work efficiently and in compliance.

Josh fully understands his supervisory duties, responsibilities and accountabilities, and continually performs them in an exemplary manner, all while fully focused on the core value of safety. In the absence of a full-time field Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) representative, Josh’s crew meets or exceeds all safety metrics expected by HSE and Operations. Josh’s commitment to the safety and health of his crew is demonstrated by his leadership of daily safety and preparation meetings, safety and health reporting, use of Loss Prevention System tools, review of Job Hazard Analysis and communicating his expectations to his crew.

Josh has received the praise of our client for his performance as well.
