The two most profound things that changed the effectiveness of our company safety program were switching from piecework to hourly wages and implementing a drug and alcohol program, reports Curt Boyd. CEO and owner of Academy Roofing Inc., Aurora, Colo. Nearly 20 years ago, Boyd graduated from the University of Wyoming hoping to become a teacher and coach. Teaching jobs were scarce, so Boyd worked as a superintendent for a roofing company for four years after college before he founded Academy Roofing and began a coaching career in the business world, not the classroom.
