Publisher/Editor-In-Chief Sarah Nicastro talks one-on-one with James Mylett of Comfort Systems about the growing importance of worker safety.
Field service organizations face a lot of demands in today’s operating conditions, and one area we often see get overlooked or deprioritized is worker safety. Safety is an easy issue to ignore when you’re not having major mishaps — but when (not if, when) you do, you’ll wish you’d have taken a more proactive approach to ensuring the safety of your workers. Comfort Systems is a mechanical systems installation and services provider with 39 operating companies in 90 locations and 1,600 field technicians overall. Comfort Systems is also a company that’s chosen to put its focus on mobile worker safety. Here, James Mylett, senior VP of service, shares with us why that is and what impact the company’s safety initiative has had.
