The National Safety Council, the United States’ leading nonprofit safety advocate, announced that United Rentals CEO Matt Flannery was selected to the 2022 CEOs Who “Get It” list. The annual NSC recognition is “presented to safety leaders who go the extra mile to protect employees both on and off the job,” NSC said.
