On April 7, 2013, our annual safety awards were presented to honor and recognize the achievements of "Team Heaton" for the year 2012.  Our program was created  seventeen 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. Please extend your congratulations to them as you see them on your jobsites or projects.




  Congratulations to Alvin Hancock, our 2012 Safety  Employee of the Year. Alvin began his career at  Heaton in 2000, driving tractors and trucks in our  fleet. He had no prior experience in the crane  industry, but had a desire to learn and advance to  the position of operator. Alvin began our in house  training and advanced from driver, to oiler, to small  crane operator. Over the years he advanced in his  skills and professionalism, and eventually became a CCO certified hydraulic operator. Alvin has been one of our large hydraulic specialists for several years. He has over 7500 hours accident free with Team Heaton.

We are proud to honor Alvin Hancock  for his contributions and commitment to our safety program.

We are proud to announce that we have been honored by the National Commission for Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) for inclusion in their Committed to Crane Safety Employer Recognition Program. This program was created to recognize the time, effort, and dedication to safety that employers demonstrate by certifying their crane operators, signalpersons, and riggers through NCCCO.
Companies that participate in this recognition program enhance their standing by demonstrating to their clients, potential clients, and employees that safety through CCO certification is a priority. We are one of only 40 companies nationwide to receive the recognition. Our commitment to certification and the safety of our industry is one of the core principles of our corporate mission. Congratulations to all the talented members of Team Heaton!
