SAFETY is our Commitment

That is the Jahna Standard for Safety and what we hold our employees to each and every day. We look out for each other whether it’s in the office or out in the field, safety is our top priority. Our Head of safety, Dwight Graves, has been with our company for almost forty years. That’s forty years of experience that our employees have access to each and every day. However, safety isn’t a one person job, it is everyone’s responsibility. We encourage everyone to be a Safety Leader and that shows in our impeccable safety record.

“We want to send you home better than the way you came in.” Allen Keesler, CEO

Payroll/Accounting
Team Member Since: 2006

I really can’t say enough good things about this family owned company! From benefits to competitive pay scales and beyond, the owners and upper management really do care about the employees and treat each team member as a family member! Processing payroll for 100+ employees can be quite challenging at times, but very rewarding in that I get to meet almost every new hire. I’ve had the opportunity to have many roles within the company, and I am positive that I will continue to learn and grow and will try to become a more valuable asset to the ER Jahna family!
