16 projects, 1 impressive award
July 13, 2011 - Memphis, Tenn. - Security Fire Protection won an impressive safety award from the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Mississippi plant in Blue Springs, Miss., for its safety performance in April.

With 16 projects, four general contractors and one owner committed to safety, you might wonder how one company handled it all.

"We worked directly with the owner on several of the projects and were amazed at the level of Toyota's safety," said Greg Stovall, Security Fire project manager. "They checked everything."

Each day Toyota Safety Inspectors reviewed a job safety analysis (JSA) submitted by Security Fire. The safety inspectors would examine site conditions and discuss any conflicts with Security Fire prior to approving work to begin the following day. Once approved, Toyota would send its safety inspectors to watch the work being done.

"It is a definite satisfaction knowing you were safe on a high-profile job such as this," said Chuck Carlisle, contract sales for Security Fire. "At one point in time we had five areas of work and at least four Toyota Safety Inspectors at each area."

Security Fire teamed with Vipond Fire Protection, one of Security Fire's sister companies in Canada. Vipond designed the fire protection systems and provided material for two projects, the Paint Body Shop and the ED-Weld UB Shop, while Security Fire managed the projects and supplied labor.

Vipond's Branch General Manager Tony Spiteri and Project Designer Cory Tremblay provided the extensive experience to put this Toyota project together.

Security Fire is currently wrapping up all projects at the plant.
