HOUSTON, May 11, 2010 – UniversalPegasus International’s employees on the TransCanada Keystone XL Project recently received a shared commendation for the vital role they played in the achievement of this milestone. The TransCanada Keystone XL Project completed one (1) year without a recordable incident or accident on the entire project, which runs from Ada, Oklahoma down to Beaumont, Texas. The President’s Award for outstanding Safety Performance was awarded to both UniversalPegasus International and Trow Engineering for their joint achievements and safety partnership on the project.

Project safety representatives John Weatherall, Jerry Garza, Forrest Nelson and Project Safety Manager Joe Whitaker were vital in the success of this milestone, along with all UniversalPegasus employees who are involved in the project. The group is comprised of surveyors, inspectors, project managers, engineers and all associated office staff. Without the individual efforts, determination and commitment to safety of everyone on this project, the milestone could not have been achieved.

"We have strong beliefs in regards to safety, and we are committed to our companies’ core values with a “We Can - We Will” attitude towards incident prevention and the protection of our most valued asset our employees," the company said in a statement.
