HazTek Safety Professional Sarah McCowen started in safety by joining a safety committee at the factory she was working at over 10 years ago. She loved it so much that she decided to make safety her career.

Around 8 years ago, Sarah accepted her first safety job in construction, which was at a data center in Iowa. Since then, she has stayed in the data center industry, working on various projects in the Des Moines area. She has received multiple certifications, including the Associate Safety Professional (ASP).

Sarah started with HazTek at the very end of July 2023 and is a proud member of our team. She says, “While in the construction safety field, I have met some amazing women and I encourage and mentor them along the way. I have two young boys at home that have gotten to watch me build my career over this past decade and I want to be a good role model for them on how anyone can succeed with hard work and determination.”

Thank you to Sarah for her passion for safety and expertise that she brings to our organization.

In honor of Women in Construction Week, HazTek is featuring several of our safety professionals who work out in the field.

The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) created Women in Construction (WIC) Week to highlight women as a viable component of the construction industry and as an occasion for the thousands of NAWIC members across the country to help raise awareness of the growing role of women in the construction industry and the opportunities available to them.

HazTek LLC is a leading provider of comprehensive safety management services with a mission to enrich the health, safety, and well-being of our employees, our customers, and our communities.
