Synergy Steel University (SSU) began with the goal of training, educating, and fostering communication among our staff – from plant and field assemblers through management. SSU’s curriculum is inclusive and encourages a team approach to safety, manufacturing, and installation. It also enhances our productivity and profitability.
Before deployment in the field, all employees participate in a 60-day training certification program. Training topics include a blend of techniques, including:
- 7 Habits
- 7 C’s and High-Performance Teams
- OSHA and Safety Conscious Work Environment
- Lean Manufacturing and Lean Construction
- Manufacturing Principles
- Panel and Truss Fabrication
- Sheathing and Window Installation
- Blueprints and Shop Drawings
- Personal Protective Equipment
Upon classroom training completion, employees proceed outdoors and form teams. As both individuals and as part of a team, our participants assemble and disassemble 10 to 15 different structures.
Open communication is another aspect of SSU’s program. Our management team is trained in conflict mediation, emphasizing team building and team communication. Employees learn to communicate with their team manager when questions or problems arise. Together, employees and management work to achieve a positive outcome and resolution.
Synergy Steel prioritizes workplace safety. Our conscientious focus on safety is a multiple-angled approach. Synergy recognizes that an organized and well-managed team assures employee satisfaction, along with a safe, consistent, profitable build. Our methods achieve results: a perfect OSHA record, lower liability insurance costs, 100% schedule adherence, and less wasted time and materials – while keeping our teams safe.
SSU contributes to our philosophy that with well-trained employees, Synergy Steel is the best light gauge steel manufacturer in the industry. We are proud of our graduates and the dedication each one invests in their success.
