Patrick J. Wolocko

Age: 30
Safety Manager
W. Soule & Co.
Portage, MI

“Patrick identified and has managed a web-based audit database used by the company. Using the information obtained, we can communicate based on leading indicators and have reduced our incidents rates by 20% over three years. He also leads our three shop safety committees. Over the past couple of years, his leadership, and the involvement of the committee, has driven the installation of two jib cranes to reduce material handling; created standard operating procedures for equipment in the shops; updated inspection forms for equipment; and helped engineer an acid wash station to eliminate some PPE requirements, making the station safer.”
