Faith Technologies Surpasses Three Million Hours Worked With No Lost-Time Accidents

MENASHA, Wis., March 18, 2010 -- Faith Technologies, a full-service electrical and specialty systems contractor with 15 locations in five states including Georgia, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Wisconsin has reached an impressive milestone. The company has surpassed three million hours worked without a lost-time accident.

“This is a rare accomplishment that many companies strive to reach, but few achieve,” said Ted Sommer, director of safety at Faith Technologies. “After surpassing two million hours with no lost-time accidents last October, we challenged employees to continue to work each day safely so that we could reach the next milestone. We are committed to safety excellence and our employees are proof that no task is worth doing without taking the time to do it safely.”

Reaching this achievement is a true testament to Faith Technologies' commitment to construction-site safety. With nearly 1,500 employees, Faith Technologies has continued to work since December 28, 2008 without a lost-time incident. This includes completing more than 19,000 projects throughout five states safely.

Faith Technologies also recently received the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin Safety Award of Excellence for its model safety program and impressive past safety record. In 2008, Faith Technologies received the second place Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) Willis Construction Safety Excellence Award. All of these accomplishments continue the tradition of safety that is instilled in Faith Technologies' company culture.

Sommer added, “While the milestones we hit and the rewards that our company receives for achieving safety excellence are meaningful, our main goal at the end of the day is to return everyone home safe to their families.”
