June is National Safety month and Bassett Mechanical, a Linc Service Contractor since 1986, has much to celebrate.
The company is proud to receive the 2019 Wisconsin Safety Council Corporate Safety Award and
honored to announce that President & CEO, Kim Bassett, has been inducted into the Wisconsin
Safety Hall of Fame.
Only 13 companies were honored with the Wisconsin Safety Council
Corporate Safety Award and Bassett Mechanical is just one of three winners in the midsize
construction (NAICS Code 23) category.
The Wisconsin Safety Council established this award program 26 years ago to honor companies
who continue to prioritize safety in their business, maintain excellent safety records, and have
worked hard to create a safe and healthy culture.
The Wisconsin Safety Hall of Fame began in 2001 and identifies
a CEO or executive of an organization that has distinguished themselves over a period of years for outstanding achievements in workplace and off-the-job safety and health, community service,
environmental stewardship and responsible citizenship. “Kim has been a terrific leader in the
safety community for years,” said Aaron Huebner, Wisconsin Safety Council Executive Director.
“Both Kim and Bassett Mechanical truly embody what it means to create a culture of safety. Their
commitment to employees’ safety at work, home, and everywhere else is unparalleled.”
“I am honored and grateful to receive this award. It is a reflection of the commitment and
dedication of our entire company to safety,” Kim shares. “I do many things in my role as President
& CEO, but doing my best to keep our associates safe is by far the most important.”
Bassett Mechanical provides custom-built industrial refrigeration, HVAC, plumbing, metal
fabricating, and preventative maintenance service solutions to customers throughout the United
States and the world. Their 268,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility is headquartered in Kaukauna,
Wisconsin, with additional locations in Madison, Milwaukee, and Wausau, Wisconsin.
