The Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association Hydronics Institute (GAMA-HI) has awarded Cleaver-Brooks' Stratford, Ontario, facility the 2005 GAMA Plant Safety Award at its recent HI Division Semi-Annual Meeting in Berkley Heights, N.J.
The winner was determined based on the least amount of lost time due to injury during 2005. The Stratford facility had zero lost-time accidents in 2005, and to date has gone four years and nine months without a lost time injury.
"I am very proud of the commitment that Cleaver-Brooks makes to the safety and security of its employees," said Earle Pfefferkorn, president of C-B Package Boiler. "But the credit really goes to our employees in Stratford, and at all of our facilities in North America. They uphold and reinforce our safety initiatives every day when they walk through the front door and come to work. I'm pleased and honored that GAMA recognizes this commitment too, and has awarded our Stratford facility for its tremendous safety record."
Cleaver-Brooks manufactures Firetube boilers, Watertube Boilers and de-aerators at its Stratford facility for customers worldwide. They currently employ 118 people and their 88,000-square-foot facility has called Stratford home for nearly 50 years.
