Chapel Hill, NC, January 19, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Strata Solar, the nation's leading solar-energy producer, achieves enviable status of operating with zero recordable injuries reported in calendar year 2018.
In the construction and commercial-maintenance industry, recordable injuries are a common and unfortunate occurrence. OSHA reports that of the 4,674 worker fatalities that occurred in 2017 more than 20% were in the construction industry.
Strata Solar's record of zero injuries is the industry’s most admired level of safety performance. The company’s 2018 record of performance includes all construction projects, operations and maintenance tasks, warehouse and office activities. In total these engagements represent over 2 million man-hours worked.
“Safety is always our first priority,” says Jason Niemiller, Safety Director at Strata Solar. “Our employees and contractors are immediately indoctrinated in our stringent safety protocols and procedures and then continue to receive ongoing safety training, and tools, throughout their tenure.”
Strata Solar's record achievement is all the more impressive when noting the large number of employees. Strata Solar employs over 350 full-time staff and more than 1,500 contract workers who serve the needs of clients in the commercial, industrial and government sectors.
“Safety is the very heart of our company culture,” states Markus Wilhelm, Strata Solar’s Chief Executive Officer. “And this achievement is something we're proud to share with our clients, business partners and our valued employees.”
