Wausau, Wis. — For the fourth consecutive year, the Wisconsin Corporate Safety Awards, co-sponsored by Wisconsin Safety Council and the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, honored Wausau Window and Wall Systems with an “Outstanding Achievement Award for Excellence in Safety.” In April, the company also celebrated another significant safety milestone: surpassing 1 million hours without a recordable injury incident.
“We are extremely proud of our employees for this achievement. We appreciate their strong commitment to safety and wellness here. It’s not just about training and policies. It’s really about creating a safety-based culture,” says Wausau’s president, Rick Marshall.
“In our industry, it is just unheard of to go a whole year as a company without a recordable. We know it’s possible,” says Doug Janz, Wausau’s safety manager. “The company’s leaders have established high expectations throughout the organization. When you add a commitment by each and every associate the results can be outstanding.”
Wausau’s “Outstanding Achievement Award for Excellence in Safety” was presented on April 17, 2012 in recognition of “outstanding efforts through exemplary job performance to advance safety in Wisconsin at work, home, school, play and on the highway.” The Wisconsin Corporate Safety Awards also notes, “They have gone to extensive measures to assure their most valuable asset -- their employees -- are safe on the job.”
Further contributing to the safety, health and morale of its employees and community, the company’s manufacturing facility in Wausau earned the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC’s) LEED® Silver-level certification for energy and environmental leadership. Multiple studies have documented measurable benefits for improved daylighting, natural ventilation and indoor air quality in buildings including reduced absenteeism, morale and productivity.
