Overall EHS & Quality Excellence Award Recipients
2023 Overall EHS Excellence Award Recipient
Alex is a Sr. Engineer in the Pittsburgh office who exceeded the annual goal of safety observations by submitting 26 observations in his first year with Middough. Not only did Alex meet the 2023 EHS priority of 100% participation in the Safe By Choice Observation program, he leveraged those observations by leading the Pittsburgh office with eight Safe By Design observations including recognizing:
- Two instances of instrumentation did not meet area classification requirements for a facility. As a result, Alex ensured all instruments and sensors for these projects were properly specified and updated to meet the area classification.
- An OEM would not be providing all the safety elements needed in a plant’s process, therefore ensured those safety elements were included, and documented the change properly.
- Each vendor on a project would be concerned with their safety designs, but would not integrate the safety measures into the entire project. Therefore, Alex ensured Middough covered the safety design gaps for the project.
Thank you for your commitment to safety, Alex!

Michelle is a Senior Process Engineer in Middough’s Cleveland office. In 2023, Michelle submitted five Quality Observations. Following one of her quality observations, Michelle developed a written procedure to memorialize the needed linkage of Plant 3D and Aspen software for higher quality design and efficiency.
Michelle’s commitment to drive results in quality improvement and being accountable to take on the quality improvement task implementation, which will immediately drive value-added internal cost savings for our clients, is truly remarkable.
Congratulations, Michelle and thank you for delivering Performance You Trust™.
