Welcome to the Spring 2012 edition of our newsletter...  
What a tremendous year Team Heaton had in 2011 ! Our safety program continued reaching "new heights" by achieving  perfect performance for the second straight year. No accidents, no injuries, no lost time ! Each and every employee of Heaton Erecting, Inc. dedicated themselves to our goals and program throughout the year and accomplished this together -truly exhibiting the team philosophy of our core values. Our certified operators remain in a class by themselves. As nationally recognized award program statistics show, less than 5% of all operators nationwide have achieved the status of having over 15,000 manhours of accident free duty. Team Heaton has 75% of its operators at or above 10,000 manhours accident free!

We consider our customers to be integral members of our team, and our success is dependent on the mutual success of our customers.

On April 1, 2012, our annual safety awards were presented to honor and recognize the achievements of "Team Heaton" for the year 2011.  Our program was created  sixteen years ago to track the safety performance of our employees, and provide a means of recognition on an individual and company wide basis. Our award criteria is very stringent and therefore winners each year have attained a high level of safety excellence. Many of our employees have been accident free for several years, as evidenced by the award levels. To provide a perspective of this accomplishment, an employee must work a minimum of five years without ANY incidents to qualify for the 10,000 hour award. We are very proud to announce the annual award winners for 2011. Please extend your congratulations to them as you see them on your jobsites or projects.




  Congratulations to James "Red" Crumpler, our 2011 Safety Employee of the Year. Red has been employed by HEI since 1979. He began his career at Heaton as a truck driver and has served our company faithfully for over thirty years. James lives and breathes Team Heaton. For several years, James has been our shop foreman, responsible for all of the necessary supplies and materials that keep HEI running on a daily basis. If you have had a mechanical unit delivered and stored in our yard, you have most likely worked with James to ensure its safe delivery and handling. James is a valuable member of our team and exemplifies the strong fundamentals of our safety program in his leadership and dedication to Team Heaton.

We are proud to honor James Crumpler for his contributions and commitment to our safety program.
