“Interning with Barriere during the summer of 2019 was my first safety internship. Being from Murray, Kentucky, my family and I were very nervous about everything that comes with moving across the country. People at Barriere made sure I was safe, comfortable, and got my times worth out of moving for the summer. My summer was packed with field experience, training, and educational steps towards improving my future career in safety.
Barriere is very serious about their safety being a core value. Many companies will say this and not implement safety programs towards achieving a safety culture. I was able to see how Barriere has tailored their safety programs for their employees. They provided instruction in a classroom setting and then applied that knowledge to the field.
They encourage questions and for employees to share their opinions. I definitely learned a lot of applicable knowledge to bring back to Murray State.

“I was able to learn the upper management side of the company. For the two previous summers of 2017 and 2018, I worked on a crew as a laborer. Getting to see the management side of things really made me appreciate what I am going to school for!”
