June 1 marks the beginning of National Safety Month and 277 consecutive days without a lost time accident for MaintenX International. MaintenX knows it takes dedication, perseverance and commitment to make safety a workplace priority. In June, and all year through, MaintenX encourages businesses to make safety a top goal.

“We don’t want our technicians to have to choose between paying bills and being safe,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “That’s why MaintenX provides all technicians with a safety kit that includes safety glasses, gloves, high-visibility vest, and a pair steel-toed boots – all for free.”

From ensuring workers get enough sleep to recognizing workplace hazards, there are a number of easy and creative ways to help increase safety for employees. One way MaintenX helps our employees stay safe is with our Safety Boot Program. As part of the safety kit, technicians are given a certificate to go online and choose the steel-toed safety boots of their choice for free. This program helps MaintenX make sure all technicians have the opportunity to be safe.

“Even if you’re being incredibly careful, things can shift or fall. Having the right equipment, like the proper boots, can help keep something that should be minor from turning into a serious issue,” Schaphorst said. “Steel-toed boots have saved my feet on more than one occasion.”

National Safety Month is an effort of the National Safety Council, whose goal is to eliminate preventable deaths in workplaces, homes, communities and on roads. National Safety Month 2018 focuses on emergency preparedness, wellness, falls and driving. For more information, visit
