Manhattan Construction's Brandon Batt receives National Safety Council Award

On October 22, the National Safety Council (NSC) will present its prestigious “Rising Star of Safety Award” to Manhattan Construction Company Safety Manager Brandon Batt at the 2018 NSC Congress & Expo in Houston, Texas.

The National Safety Council developed the “Rising Stars of Safety” to help shine a light on up-and-coming safety stars. Nominees are recognized at the NSC Congress & Expo and are highlighted in Safety+ Health® magazine.

“Brandon’s compassion for others drives his personal belief in the value of safety to business operations and, more importantly, to his commitment to accident prevention,” said Brian Killion, vice president of operations for Manhattan Construction Company.

Batt honorably served in the United States Army from 1998-2006. He was a notification trainer and mission leader to the Wounded in Action (WIA) and Killed in Action (KIA) notification branch, and then served as Head Liaison for Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Bethesda National Navy Medical Center.

Killion said, “Through his military experience, Brandon understands the direct impact that injury or death can have on an individual and their family. We are fortunate to have this caring leader at the helm of our safety programs in the Washington, DC area.”

Batt joined Manhattan Construction Co. in 2012. In 2016, Construction Equipment Magazine honored him as a 40 under 40 honoree.
