David Theye Promoted to Director of Safety and Training

Briner Building, Inc. is pleased to announce the promotion of David Theye as Director of Safety and Training. David joined Briner Building in 2002 as Steel Erector and became Safety Director in 2017.

“David’s advancement to Director of Safety and Training is a reflection not only of Briner’s commitment to quality and safety but also of David’s commitment to the company for more than 20 years,” said Bryan Harshbarger, President of Briner Building. “His unique skill set will further benefit our team and our clients in this new role.”

David spearheaded Briner’s recent AC478 Accreditation, which is administered by the International Accreditation Service, a member of the International Code Council Family of Solutions which develops the IBC codes. It verifies a contractor and erector’s compliance in documented safety and training programs, documented management systems and job-site specific assembly plans. Briner is the only AC478 accredited builder in Indiana.

David said, “Briner differentiates itself from other companies by investing in our employees’ safety through industry-leading training and education. We’ve truly culturized safety. Our increased focus on quality and safety gives our clients even more peace of mind they will receive a superior product with less risk exposure. Since both safety and quality issues take time to correct when they occur, our continued efforts also help Briner deliver a finished project on both time and budget.”

He continued, “This new role will allow me to continue to draw on my years of real-world field experience to help create innovative, efficient and cost-effective solutions to complex safety issues. It’s also very important to me that nobody is hurt trying to provide for their family, and I know that belief is also shared by the rest of the leadership at Briner.”
