Celebrating Safety: Hellman Electric’s Safety Awareness Week Event

At Hellman Electric, safety is more than a priority—it’s a core value woven into every aspect of our operations. This year, we proudly celebrated Construction Safety Week with our first-ever onsite employee event to raise safety awareness and foster a culture of continuous improvement.

The event was nothing short of a success, drawing in 197 employees who came together in the spirit of camaraderie and safety advocacy.

To help fuel the day full of activities and presentations, we brought in mouth-watering delights from J’s BBQ.

The hearty fare filled our stomachs and fueled meaningful conversations about safety practices and personal experiences from industry-leading vendors, including:

  • 3M Fall Protection: Demonstrated cutting-edge fall protection gear, emphasizing the importance of high-quality safety equipment in preventing accidents.
  • Greenlee: Offered hands-on tool demos and generously donated a tester for our giveaway, making their booth a popular stop for our tech-savvy employees.
  • Milwaukee: Brought a variety of tool demos and giveaways, including shirts, a leaf blower, and a radio, adding an element of fun and excitement to the event.
  • Menotti Enterprises & Otoos: Our dedicated safety consulting companies were there, providing valuable insights and advice on maintaining safety standards.
  • Louisville Ladders: Focused on ladder safety, demonstrating best practices and safe usage techniques to prevent common workplace injuries.

In addition, as part of our event, we hosted an internal trivia contest focusing on safety knowledge. Employees participated, showcasing their expertise, and the competition got intense with two bonus rounds. The competition eventually ended with awarding a $250 Red Wing Gift Card to the winner, Jim Ditta, who earned the top spot due to his impressive knowledge of construction safety practices.

We owe a special thank you to Bronx Business Representative Benny Arena for his presence and support of our Safety Day and to Electra USA for their unwavering support of our safety initiatives. Their contributions were instrumental in making this event a resounding success.

 

Our first-ever Construction Safety Week event was more than just a celebration—it was a powerful reminder of our commitment to fostering a safe work environment. Our employees’ enthusiasm and participation have set a high bar, and we look forward to making this an annual tradition!
