Safety is our number one priority for our employees, especially in our manufacturing facilities and warehouses. By conducting safety exercises, we can mitigate risks, promote a safety culture, improve emergency preparedness, and enhance employee well-being. Earlier this year, Simpson Strong Tie’s West Chicago warehouse organized a Safety Day, where the team engaged in interactive training to promote safety awareness. Learn about the various training exercises conducted during the event and how they both fostered camaraderie and enhanced safety knowledge.
As a lead industry supporter and research partner of the National Science Foundation-funded NHERI TallWood test, Simpson Strong-Tie is proud to participate in this groundbreaking initiative to investigate the resilience of tall timber buildings in earthquake-prone regions.
June is National Safety Month, but at Simpson Strong-Tie, safety never takes a day off. We’re at it all year, day in and day out. The motto of the Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) department is “Keep Us Strong,” and that’s exactly what we strive to do. At Simpson Strong-Tie, safety comes first. One of Barc’s Nine Principles of Business is “Everybody Matters,” and this is truly supported by our team’s dedication to the safety of our employees, as well as making products that build stronger, safer structures for our customers.
