On Thursday, August 6, Connor Fine Painting was honored with the Coalition for Construction Safety (CCS) Zero Injury Award once again. As a way to highlight safety excellence, the award is given to CCS safety-certified organizations whose employees have not suffered a work-related injury for the entire calendar year. The entire CFP organization considers this to be the greatest recognition we can receive. 

The Zero Injury Award is 100% focused on the safety and wellbeing of our painting professionals. Safety is at the heart of everything we do; it’s a part of our DNA. At Connor Fine Painting, attention to wellbeing doesn’t stop with our employees. When we take extra measures to ensure safety, everyone wins—our employees, their families, our customers and even our community benefits. As a small business, the financial investment in becoming a safety-certified organization is significant. However, using what could be production time in the field for safety training is worth its weight in gold if it can prevent even one small accident. We’ve built our safety culture, step-by-step, year after year, which secures our position as the safety leader of commercial painting contractors in the central Indiana market and beyond.

Connor Fine Painting professionals meet rigorous safety goal

Being a safety-certified organization with CCS has helped CFP in meeting the high standards for this award. CCS helped Connor develop a systematic and rigorous approach to safety which includes safety auditing and training as its cornerstone. Every CFP employee, management included, meets weekly for critical training and guidance. Examples include ladder and lift training, respirator fit testing, pulmonary function testing, CPR, and first aid, to name a few. Additionally, Connor participates in the CCS substance abuse program which includes random drug screenings.

This year, Connor Fine Painting brought home another award. One of our long-standing employees, Andy Kendall, was recognized with the CCS Outstanding Craftsman Award. Andy’s dedication to his career with Connor Fine Painting and his commitment to safety and excellence deserved to be recognized with this award. We’re so proud we can honor his work and his talents in this way. Congratulations, Andy!

Most noteworthy, the CFP safety commitment does not go unnoticed by our customers, many of whom have safety programs of their own. Customers know that an organization focused on safety excellence is dedicated to quality in every regard. Connor’s commercial and industrial craftsmen fit hand-in-glove with blue-chip companies because of our shared safety values. Connor has continually strived to exceed industry and personal safety standards throughout the years, and we will continue to dedicate ourselves to a mission of safety excellence.
