Hans Hinrichsen - Director of Corporate Safety
P.J. Hoerr is excited to welcome Hans Hinrichsen as our new Director of Corporate Safety. In this role Hans will be overseeing and administering all aspects of corporate and project safety and Risk Management for P.J. Hoerr as well as Summit Masonry and Benchmark Cabinetry and Millwork.
Hans comes to us from Hayward Baker, Inc, a large geotechnical contractor based out of Odenton, Maryland where he served the last 4 years as a Corporate Safety Coordinator. In that capacity he traveled the U.S. performing site audits, incident investigations and OSHA training. While there he also oversaw safety on all projects, managed site safety personnel and helped implement risk management and safety programs to reduce job place injuries for Haywood Baker's Southern division. Programs developed included filming new hire orientation video, filming technique specific training videos, formalizing safety committees and developing a safety education program.
Hans graduated in 2008 from Illinois State University with a B.S. in Environmental Health with a major in Safety. He has his OSHA 500 Certification with certification in OSHA 30 hour and 10 hour classes. He also has extensive training in the areas of Industrial Hygiene, OSHA General Industry, Confined Space, HazMat regulations, and Ergonomics. We feel that Hans is an excellent addition to our PJH/Summit team and will help to insure that we remain on the cutting edge of Construction Safety.
Our corporate Safety Program is progressive in both its comprehensiveness as well as its effectiveness. The company utilizes the renowned STOP program as developed by the DuPont Corporation. This program emphasizes preventive and proactive consultation with anyone observed performing an unsafe act on our jobsites. The goal is to engage the offender in a positive dialogue in which he is able to personally identify the dangers inherent in his unsafe act and thus more clearly understand the potential harm that could befall himself or those around him.
P. J. Hoerr serves Central Illinois, including in and around Peoria, Bloomington, Normal, Champaign, Urbana, Morton, Washington, Galesburg, Canton, Tremont, Mackinaw, Pekin, Eureka, Metamora, and Germantown Hills.
