7 Million Safe Hours
Tweet Garot Mechanical Inc. – 7 Million Safe Hours
Tweet/Garot Mechanical of Green Bay, Wisconsin has attained a historic safety milestone, working 7 Million Safe Hours without a lost-time incident. This achievement occurred in October and spans just over a 10 year period beginning in June of 2002.
Tweet/Garot will be celebrating their record-breaking achievement with an on-going celebration of “10/7”, recognizing both 10 years and 7 million hours of success. Employees will be recognized for their achievement in small group meetings as well as at yearly company meetings over the next two months.
Tweet/Garot CEO, Tim Howald, and Safety Director, Gabe Gutenberger, attribute Tweet/Garot’s safety success to the efforts involved in their constantly improving safety program, and the “relentless safety dedication” of their employees.
Tweet/Garot introduced its Zero Injury program in January, 2004, which raised the expectations of all employees to promote safety awareness proactively. Since that time, Tweet/Garot Mechanical continues to be one of the innovative, pro-active contractors who make workplace safety an ever-evolving and improving process. Most recently, Tweet/Garot developed their Safety Advocate Program, adding 17 highly trained tradespersons to their job sites as additional eyes and ears, eliminating potential safety risks before they happen, and providing immediate consultation and guidance as situations or questions arise.
Tweet/Garot has received commendations by the AGC (Associated General Contractors) of Wisconsin for sixteen straight years, the Wisconsin Corporate Safety Grand Award for nine of the past twelve years, as well as continued recognition by MCAA (Mechanical Contractors Association of America), and SMACNA (Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors National Association). These awards were based on, among other criteria, an OSHA incident rate significantly lower than their industry average.
Tweet/Garot Mechanical is one of Northeast Wisconsin’s largest mechanical contractors, employing approximately 350 people, with offices in Green Bay and Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. Tweet/Garot provides services in the areas of
plumbing, heating, process piping, sheet metal fabrication and ventilation, boiler services, food processing equipment, service and engineering.
