PHOENIX, AZ – Goettl Air Conditioning and its sister company The Sunny Plumber took home CopperPoint’s 2015 Best of the Best award for employee safety, a distinction given out to only 43 of CopperPoint’s 15,000 policy holders; less than one-percent. The prestigious award is given out annually by CopperPoint, a leading provider of worker’s compensation insurance in Arizona. The award honors companies with extraordinary employee safety records. Award winners are evaluated on criteria such as loss history, claims severity, and having an established safety committee.
“CopperPoint Insurance Company is committed to helping make workplaces safer and to providing peace of mind to our policyholders and their employees. We take this responsibility seriously because safe businesses save lives. We created our annual Best of the Best program to honor policyholders who have outstanding workplace safety records.” said Phyllis Senseman, Vice President of Agency Management and Marketing.
“This year, only 43 companies statewide, or .003 percent of our policyholders, qualified as a Best of the Best; we are proud to honor Goettl with this recognition,” said Senseman.
HVAC and plumbing is dangerous work; technicians work in extreme weather conditions, perform excavations, and carry-out work in risky spaces such as attics. To combat this, John Onorato, general manager for The Sunny Plumber and safety manager for both companies, makes a point to provide the latest personal protective equipment for his employees, and holds monthly safety meetings.
“We provide safety classes,” Onorato said. “And carry a culture that revolves around keeping our employees safe and able to go home to their families every night.”
“I am very proud that we were recognized,” Onorato said. “We care about our employees and preach safety awareness.”
