Safety Comes First at CoolSys
The safety of our employees has been at the core of CoolSys long before COVID-19 posed a threat to nearly every industry and person. There is now heightened awareness on the importance of social distancing, hand washing and face coverings to protect specifically against the coronavirus. Yet, taking extreme safety measures to protect our employees has long been at the forefront of our leadership-driven initiatives.
CoolSys President and CEO, Adam Coffey, drives the prioritization of ensuring the health and safety of CoolSys employees. Most workplace accidents are preventable when you invest adequately and proactively in preventing them. CoolSys is making significant investments to ensure on-the-job safety for all employees and to create a best-in-class safety culture that is on par with our operational excellence.
What safety means to us
For our CEO, it is a personal commitment to create a culture of safety that CoolSys employees can trust in. When we think of on-the-job safety, we think comprehensively—we think about our thousands of CoolSys employees who are driving trucks, working on jobsites, climbing ladders, standing on roofs and working in office environments. Our goal is to significantly lower our total recordable incident rate (TRIR).
Our investment includes building a safety team led by retired Army Colonel Tim Clemente. Tim’s experience includes leading safety efforts at Walt Disney, Service Master and Direct TV. Tim says,
“There is nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our employees. CoolSys is making significant investments in safety while embarking on our journey toward an injury-free workplace. Together, we will achieve a best-in-class safety culture that is on par with our operational excellence, designed to continuously assess and reduce risk in the workplace. We will leverage advances in technology to assist with employee safety on the job and while operating company vehicles. I am very excited to be a part of CoolSys and look forward to serving the needs of our company for many years to come.”
For all CoolSys employees who do their jobs so well each day, our job is to see to it that every employee returns home from each shift safely to their families.
