Trico Lift last week received the American Subcontractors Association of New Jersey’s 37th Annual Safety Award, given to companies that “help define excellence in safety and serve as a role model for member companies.”
“In 2005, we made a business commitment to work towards the highest safety ideals in our industry,” Trico Lift president and CEO Ken Pustizzi said. “We recognized we had been fortunate and that the protection and well being of our employees would be reinforced through added safety measures.” Pustizzi said Trico Lift then developed a formal safety policy and compliance program aimed at prevention and risk management.
“This award is a tribute to our employees who continue to work safely having achieved a near two-year record without a lost-time or recordable incident,” Pustizzi said at the association’s annual dinner.
The program is administered by Trico Lift’s vice president of safety Steve Phillips. “Scheduled maintenance inspections performed on each fleet unit occur at least every 90 days and often exceed OSHA inspection mandates,” Phillips said.
Based in Millville, N.J., Trico Lift has branches in New Jersey, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and, most recently, Houston. The aerial rental company is No. 53 on the RER 100.
