Safety and Training
Our policy is to provide a safe place for all employees, customers and visitors. Safety programs are developed consistent with OSHA standards.
- Implement procedures designed to provide a safe working environment for all employees, customers, vendors, subcontractors and members of the general public.
- Reduce the potential of accidental injuries to persons and protect the property of Pfefferle Companies, employees, customers and the general public.
- Cooperate with subcontractors and clients in their efforts to contribute to safe and efficient operations, and to comply with applicable federal, state and local statutes, standards and regulations.
- Exercise good judgment in the application of our safety policy and custom training.
It is our philosophy that our efforts toward production, quality and safety must be inseparable. Through the implementation of this program, every attempt is made to reduce the possibility of an occupational accident or illness. Incident reporting and accident investigations are used to promote continuous improvement in the safety program.
Along with comprehensive in-house training programs and other resources, Pfefferle is able to keep technicians and employees engaged and up to date through ongoing training, including:
- Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) HVAC – Apprenticeship Program
- Focus on Energy – Building Operator Certification
- Fox Valley Technical College – Leadership Training/Customer Service
- Fox Valley Technical College – Lean Training/Task Management
- Wisconsin Healthcare Engineering Association (WHEA) – Monthly. Quarterly meetings along with ongoing training in specialized areas.
- In-house training by our journeymen HVAC, plumbing and electrical technicians
- Lauzon Life Safety Consulting – Life safety/documentation training
Specialty technicians are only utilized when it’s the appropriate choice for a particular property. If a sub-contractor is hired, the skill set of the Pfefferle specialty technician is still used to enhance the performance of a sub-contractor.
