The Wisconsin Safety Council honored Wausau Window and Wall Systems as a 28th Annual Wisconsin Corporate Safety Awards winner. This is the fourteenth consecutive year Wausau has been recognized as a finalist and the second time it earned the award. Wisconsin Corporate Safety Award winners are determined by an independent panel of judges who are safety, health and insurance professionals.
“A ‘Safe and Enjoyable Work Environment’ is our first core value,” said Wausau’s safety manager, Doug Janz. “We believe that a remarkable safety program does not occur overnight; a company must be consistent and continually strive to improve their program to be beyond compliance.”
As a Wisconsin Corporate Safety Award nominee, Wausau submitted data about its 2021 safety records and provided information about its safety and health leadership, training programs, team participation, culture, goals and successes.
Through its commitment, Wausau’s cumulative OSHA-recordable injury rate for the last 10 years is 1.52, which the company says is “notably lower” than the industry annual average of 5.40 recordable injuries for metal window and door manufacturing workers, as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
“We have a great team of associates who bring these values to life and put safety as a priority each and every day. They are the ones who truly earned this award and make Wausau a winning place to work,” Janz added.
