Limbach's "Hearts & Minds" Safety Program Wins Award
SEAL BEACH, California - Limbach Company LP is pleased to announce that Sheet Metal Occupational Health Institute Trust (SMOHIT) has chosen Limbach’s “Hearts & Minds” program as the winner of the 2018 SMOHIT Safety Matters Award. Through this award, SMOHIT recognizes outstanding contributions in expanding health and safety programs at the local level for unionized sheet metal workers. Only six awards are given out nationwide, one per region. Limbach’s Southern California branch competed against other contractors, training centers and local organizations for the honor. SMOHIT will hand the recognition plaque to Southern California Safety Manager David Larkin on February 25th at the award ceremony in Scottsdale, Arizona.
When asked about the selection and importance of this recognition, Larkin commented, “What really stood out to SMOHIT was that our “Hearts & Minds” program was a well-thought out plan that asks people to take responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others. Even though Seal Beach, CA will be on the recognition plaque, the recognition really has to do with the “Hearts & Minds” program as a whole. This award, in the truest sense, is a company award.”
