Rosendin Recognized for Safety Excellence on Tempe Streetcar Project: Electrical Contracting Firm Na
Rosendin, one of the nation’s largest employee-owned electrical contracting firms, is proud to announce recognition for its local workforce. In the last month, Rosendin was honored for safety excellence on the Tempe Streetcar project, ranked as a top training program and named one of the region’s largest electrical contractors.
Stacy and Witbeck, the civil contracting company building the Tempe Streetcar, awarded Rosendin employees the Safety Crew of the Month for February. Rosendin General Foreman, Caleb Woodard, along with co-workers Cebie Kinard and Rich Kindred, were recognized for keeping workers safe in an extremely challenging environment which stretches for three miles through downtown Tempe, surrounded by vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
“Safety is one of our most fundamental values, so we’re thrilled that our employees have been recognized for upholding Rosendin’s and Stacy & Witbeck’s high standards to keep safety and quality at the forefront” said Christi Sova, Rosendin Project Manager.
“To ensure safety remains a priority, we work with employees to establish proper training, stringent paperwork requirements and oversight on every project,” said Curt Stephens, Rosendin Project Executive. For example, Rosendin’s Injury, Illness and Impact Free Program (I-3 Free) aims to eliminate at-risk behaviors and focuses on supportive leadership, personal commitment, free and open lines of communication and accountability.
These types of corporate programs also landed Rosendin a top spot in February’s Training Magazine, which ranked the electrical contractor #49 in the world for its commitment to workforce learning.
“As an employee owned company, we know our people are our most valuable asset, so we strive to give our employees the best tools, the best working conditions and the best training programs as we work to build the future of the Valley,” said Brandon Stephens, Rosendin Division Manager.
The Tempe Streetcar is one of several large-scale transportation projects Rosendin is working on locally, along with the Phoenix Sky Train and Sky Harbor Int’l Airport Terminal Four renovations. With gross sales for Maricopa and Pinal counties hitting $98 million in 2018, the Phoenix Business Journal just named Rosendin’s Tempe office as the second Largest Phoenix-Area Electrical Contractor.
2019 has been a great year for Rosendin, as the national company celebrates its 100th year in business. Throughout the year, Rosendin will look back at 100 Empowering Events that shaped the company and will be sharing those events online with #Rosendin100 and #SharedSuccess1919.
