COUNTRYSIDE, Ill.

Scheck Industries (www.goscheck.com), a full-service national industrial piping, mechanical, boiler and process controls construction contractor, announces that the company has achieved a safety milestone of seven million craft hours in the field without a lost-time injury in seven years.

Scheck maintains a reputation as a safety standard bearer in the specialty construction industry. Most recently Scheck received the Contractor Award for Meritorious Safety Performance for achieving a total recordable incidence rate of “Zero” for 101,533 hours at the Trainer Refinery of Monroe Energy. The award, presented by the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, recognizes contractors working a minimum of 20,000 hours per calendar year that achieved a total recordable incidence rate of 0.6 or less with no workplace fatality during 2014.

“You all strive to put safety first and it shows! We congratulate you on a well-deserved award,” said Jeff Warmann, chief executive officer and president, Monroe Energy, LLC. “We are very proud and glad to have such a safe group to work with us side-by-side. We truly appreciate your continued efforts to put safety first. Thank you and all of the Scheck Team.”

Additionally, Scheck Industries recently received the following awards:

  • 2014 Thomas J. Reynolds Award for construction safety and health by The Association of Union Constructors (TAUC). Based on OSHA logs, the Scheck Mechanical DART rate was 0.00 – more than 25 percent below the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) national average of 2.2.
  • 2014 Meritorious Performance Award from the Three Rivers Manufacturers’ Association member companies and the TRMA board of directors. The award recognized Scheck’s record for working without a recordable injury in 2014 for work done at the ExxonMobil plant in Channahon.
  • A first ever “Diamond award” issued directly from the ExxonMobil refinery manager. Alongside the Diamond award were also the “Gold Award” and “Merit Award.”

“Scheck Industries is committed to the concept that all injuries can be prevented,” said Joe Lasky, Jr., CSP, CHMM, Director, Corporate Safety, Health and Environment, Scheck Industries, who also serves as the chair of TAUC’s Safety and Health Committee. “Our performance expectation is that there will be no injuries on our jobsites, and we ensure this through the consistent and proper training of each member of our crews.”
