Craig Nilges is a Project Manager for the Capital Paving & Construction team!
Although Craig has managed to embody safety on the daily for many years now, his response to a recent incident further shows his commitment to staying educated on safe practices.
Early this year, when a teammate began experiencing a medical emergency, Craig and other project managers were quick to respond – some preparing the AED, others performing CPR, and others notifying and ensuring the emergency responders knew the location, all demonstrating the training and preparedness they have received as a CPC employees. Their rapid response and coordination played a crucial role in providing the necessary assistance until EMS professionals arrived at the scene.
Without a moment’s hesitation, they were able to assess the situation and execute what was necessary to ensure the safety of their teammate.
Furthermore, Craig’s commitment to safety extends beyond this incident. During discussions about bidding, work plans, and other matters, he consistently brings up safety and ensures that a comprehensive plan is in place. His proactive approach and emphasis on safety in his conversations with owners demonstrates his dedication to creating a safe working environment. Additionally, Craig leads by example, practicing safe measures himself and advocating for safety among his colleagues.
