Pono Pa’ahao, H&C Service Division Vice President, accepts the Safety of the Year Award

The General Contractors Association of Hawaii annually recognizes companies exhibiting excellence in safety. The 2021 Safety Awards theme was “United for Safety” specifically celebrating the teamwork required to keep project sites, employees and subcontractors safe.

Heide & Cook (H&C) is proud to be a recipient of the highest honor, “Best in Category” in their category Associates/Specialty 70,000-324,999 as well as recognition for a zero-incident rate for the 2020 year.

Todd Williams, H&C President, remarked, “We are honored and humbled to receive this award. It serves as a reflection of the culture we have developed at H&C where every employee is engaged and takes individual responsibility not only for their own safety but also for the safety of their fellow team members. Moreover, our culture and commitment to safety extends beyond the fine work our employees do every day and they share it in our community, with our customers, vendors and with friends and families”.

Williams continued, “H&C is a unique company in that it has multiple divisions serving a variety of disciplines in multiple Island locations. Each of our divisions, HVAC, refrigeration, plumbing, elevator, sheet metal, construction and portable air conditioning rentals are presented a unique set of challenges when it comes to ensuring safe work is performed. Adding to this complexity is the variety of customers that we serve- government, educational, retail, hospitality, healthcare with each having unique and distinct demands and safety requirements. Because of our culture, we have been successful in addressing these ever- changing challenges.”
