Electrical Contractor Achieves 2 Million Hours, No Lost Time
Faith Technologies, an employee-owned, full-service electrical and specialty systems contractor, has achieved two million hours without a lost-time accident. The Menasha, Wis.-based company, which operates in Georgia, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Wisconsin, said the accomplishment reflects its commitment to construction-site safety and demonstrates that safety is an integral part of its business process.
According to Faith management, the company achieved its safety milestone through the combined efforts of more than 1,500 employees working on numerous projects nationwide without a lost-time incident since Dec. 29, 2008.
"A strong safety culture in any organization is dependent upon a commitment to safety throughout the entire company," said Faith CEO Rollie Stephenson. "The responsibility rests firmly on the organization's leadership to establish priorities and to create a climate in which such a commitment can flourish."
In 2008, while generating $228 million in overall revenue, Faith was awarded the second place Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) Willis Construction Safety Excellence Award, with an industry-leading EMR of 0.55 and a recordable rate of 0.
Safety Director Ted Sommer said the company "strives every day to meet our goal of zero incidents through preplanning, training, and open coordination among the trades." He added, "Working safely means our employees are able to go home safely to their families each and every night."
