Do COVID-19 precautions have you down? Feeling like Groundhog Day with the same zoom calls, same view out the window, same pants since last week? With limited distractions to break up our routines, it can get repetitive. However, we urge you to remain diligent as you focus on your safety and health. Here is how we are continuing to stay safe.
If you’re looking to open a new facility or expand one already in existence, there’s a lot to know about how construction of a senior living facility works best, and how to navigate building codes, health care regulations and working with a construction firm.

We at Fortney & Weygandt are happy to report that the Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation awarded us a Certificate of 100% Achievement for preventing accidents and injuries in the work place during 2017. This award recognizes that we experienced no lost time accidents during the year. While there were a couple of minor injuries, our workforce competed 216,000 hours of work without a significant injury.
Did you know that March is Ladder Safety Month? Fortney & Weygandt's Safety Director, Dave Freeh, put together a list of things to watch for when you're working with ladders on a job site. The more you know, the safer you are.
As we have seen so often, water can be an incredibly devastating natural force. When a flood hits, as we saw recently in Missouri and Illinois, the resulting misery and destruction can leave one with an unsure path to recovery.
Continuing our efforts to keep our employees working safely is an important part of our culture.
In recognition of those efforts, Fortney & Weygandt, Inc. received an award from the Bureau of Workers Compensation for its effort in preventing accidents and injuries in the workplace during 2012.
