To develop safety skills further, Horch Roofing shut down the company on Wednesday, May 29th in order to send their crew to hear world-renowned motivational speaker, Charlie Morecraft, present at the Camden Opera House. Morecraft is the #1 motivational speaker on safety. He tells the story of a tragic accident, in which he nearly lost his life, to explain the importance of following safety procedures and to show how workers must take responsibility for their own safety.
Horch Roofing’s commitment to safety is demonstrated in a number of ways:
- The Training Center in their shop in Warren allows less experienced employees to learn the proper roofing techniques,correct application, and the general “tricks of the trade” in a controlled environment
- Monthly safety meetings to review topics like safe lifting, ladder safety, and fall protection
- All roofers must wear secured harnesses while working on top of a roof
- Hardhats must be worn at job sites to protect ground men from possible falling objects
- Horch Roofing is fully insured in the event that an accident occurs
Horch understands that there is always room for improvement when the safety of his crew and his customers’ property is at stake. Horch Roofing not only sent their entire crew, but also acted as a cosponsor along with Phi Home Designs for Charlie Morecraft’s presentation. Proceeds from the event went to P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center.
