Safety Spotlight: Century Painting Corporation Safety Van

Author, Lauren Stumpf , Media Communications Assistant, Rancho Mesa Insurance Services, Inc .

Century Painting Corporation acquired the innovative Safety Training Unit, also known simply as the Safety Van, in May 2018 and the benefits have been endless. The Safety Van is equipped with safety training topics, tools, and protective equipment. Safety meetings were previously held at the Century Painting office, but now Eddie Lopez, Safety Coordinator of Century Painting Corp. travels to the jobsites and trains the employees on the spot; saving time and reducing hassle for the workers. The Safety Van has job specific trainings loaded onto the TV mounted to the back of the van, making it convenient for Eddie to open the van, set up chairs, and give safety presentations to the workers at the jobsite.

“The reason Century Painting has this van is because we strive for Safety which is our number one core value. Also to make sure all of our guys go home safe to their families every day” says Eddie Lopez, Safety Coordinator at Century Painting. “We really do care about them [the employees], it’s not all about just working. We care about how they get here and how they go back home every day.”  

Century Painting Corporation has 5 core values; safety being number one followed by quality, integrity, team work, and organization. These show in every aspect of their company; the Safety Van being just one.

“Arturo, Victor, and Eddie have really made safety the core of Century Painting Corporation. It is really easy to be their insurance agent when you get to go out to carriers and show them really the crème de la crème of a safe company” says Kevin Howard, Account Executive of the Construction Group at Rancho Mesa. “The main focus of safety for them is the culture; they care about the employees. They treat every single employee like they are a family member.”
