“Safe work environments show our employees and clients that we care. We will continue to promote safe work habits by our employees on a daily basis because we recognize the importance of safety in the workplace. This recognition of our good safety record will put Greenleaf Landscapes, Inc. head and shoulders above the competition,” said Dave Fleming, general manager.
