LINCOLN — Lincoln Electric System will be recognized as one of “Nebraska’s Safest Companies” when the National Safety Council, Nebraska, holds its Celebration of Safety on May 15, 2019. The event will mark the 36th Annual Celebration of Safety, honoring organizations, companies and individuals that make the safety of Nebraskans a priority.
