Superheat speaks frequently about safety and the systemic impact their innovations have on their safety program. It is a core pillar of their business and something they practice every day – “safety is no accident”. It is their priority to remain the safest on-site heat treatment provider in the industry and to do this, they are constantly evaluating how they can improve their practices, equipment, and overall global culture – there is always room for improvement as companies grow.
On April 28, 2022, Joe Brynda – Mid-West Safety Manager, Matt Grace – Mid-West Regional Manager, Jason Aulwurm – Area Manager, and Steve Phillippe – Business Development Manager (pictured below) represented Superheat at the Indiana Coalition for Construction Safety Anniversary and Awards Celebration. The coalition is integral to over 450 full members and has been annually celebrating the safety achievements in the construction and facilities maintenance industry in Indiana for 29 years. Superheat was honored to have their award submissions reviewed by the panel of CCS judges and are extremely proud to share that they were recognized for many of their safety efforts. Their dedication and persistence resulted in 4 unanimously selected awards, the Safety Achievement Award, the Safety Leader Award, the Safety Innovation Award, and the Zero Injury Award.
The Safety Achievement Award was based on Joe Brynda exhibiting a formal presentation to the CCS Judges covering topics such as Superheat’s safety programs, practices, and initiatives, which was then followed by a question period. 17 companies were selected for this award and from those the top 5 were presented the Safety Leader Award. Superheat is elated to share they were among the top 5 in the category.
For the Safety Innovation Award, Superheat submitted a 3-page narrative that spoke to their safety program, culture, and what innovative technology tools & practices elevate them beyond the industry norm. They outlined the critical impact their Superheat SmartCenter™, equipment, digital QA platform SmartView™, and SWAT (safe work action team) program had on their 3-year metrics and historical ZERO recordable injuries. For this, in particular for their Superheat SmartCenter™, they were the only company recognized with the Safety Innovation Award. To read their narrative submission in full please click HERE.
