Superior Operators Receive International Crane Operator Safety Award

Atlanta, GA & Orlando, FL – Superior Rigging & Erecting Co. employees Darrell Clayborne and Kody Coomer have received the 2023 Crane Operator Safety Award from the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association, an international organization comprised of more than 1,350 members from 46 nations.

The SC&RA Crane Operator Safety Award is presented to certified crane operators who exhibit exemplary work achievements, accumulating 10,000 consecutive man hours while recording zero accidents and incidents.

Superior Rigging & Erecting Co. is committed to a safety-first mindset in all that they do because they value their employees not only as critical to SRE but also as human beings critical to the success of their family and the local community. Superior firmly believes the safety of employees, the environment, the public, clients and subcontractors cannot be compromised by operations. Superior will always place safety ahead of production goals. If a job cannot be accomplished safely, it will not be done.

Clayborne (Atlanta) and Coomer (Orlando) have a long-standing history of excellence while meeting the highest safety standards. Both were recently honored as February’s SRE Crane Operator of the Month.

“What an honor it is to have two of the best crane operators in the industry working at Superior. Darrell and Kody both go above and beyond to make sure their jobs are completed safely. They achieve the highest customer satisfaction. I can’t say enough great things about them both and they are certainly deserving of this award,” said Patrick Lewis, CEO/President of Superior Rigging & Erecting Co.
