Fergus first Canadian facility to earn A. O. Smith top safety award
The employees of A. O. Smith Corp.’s offices and distribution center in Fergus, Ontario, were recently presented with the Lloyd B. Smith President’s Safety Award for excellence in workplace safety. President and Chief Operating Officer Kevin J. Wheeler praised the Fergus team for their efforts, noting they were the first Canadian facility to earn the award in its 63-year history. “Many people think of safety as a factory-only activity, but this team knows better,” Wheeler said. The award is given annually to the A. O. Smith facility that achieves the best overall performance in workplace safety during a calendar year.
