METAIRIE, La.—May 13, 2019—M S Benbow & Associates’s (MSB) safety culture and safe practices in the workplace earned the engineering consultancy recognition from the South Louisiana Chapter of the National Safety Council (NSC). MSB was one of four companies with 100,000-250,000 hours worked to receive the Metro Safety Award of Honor and among 23 companies of various sizes to earn the recognition.
The awards were distributed in April at the NSC South Louisiana Chapter Banquet at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Metairie.
