Bill Howe Family of Companies Focuses on Safety for Drivers

San Diego plumbers get a lesson in safe driving practices

October 15, 2014, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing has a distinguished history of offering high quality services in San Diego plumbing, heating and air conditioning, and restoration and flood services. For over 30 years, they have been industry leaders and set the precedence for service companies in their community. Not only focused on delivering the highest quality of services, the company focuses on continued training and education for their San Diego plumbers and employees to ensure that they help to protect the local community.

The Bill Howe Family of Companies has a zero tolerance for unsafe driving among its employees in San Diego. Plumbers, HVAC techs and remediation specialists comprise over 80 drivers for the local company and are held to the highest standards when driving company vehicles. Each employee with a company vehicle must keep a clean DMV driving record and adhere to all California traffic laws, including the use of mobile phones and electronic devices while driving. All employees have signed the policy and even the office staff is disallowed from calling the drivers while their vehicles are in motion.

“We use our GPS tracking system to ensure that when we reach out to our technicians in the field, we can determine if they are driving,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We are also in the process of installing applications that will disable the phones while in motion to further ensure our drivers are focused on safety at all times.”

The company continually offers education events, as well as safety training and reminders company wide. As part of their October company meeting, they hosted the TRED (Training, Research and Education for Driving Safety) from the University of California, San Diego and the California Highway Patrol to present an hour long safe driving seminar “Just Drive” to the company.

The presentation is part of the effort to reduce distracted driving in San Diego and is offered free to companies. The class covers the definitions of distracted driving, dangers of distracted driving; California Vehicle Code and legal requirements as well as actions employees can take to reduce distracted driving. The team of speakers, including two CHP officers, illuminated and educated the Bill Howe Family of Companies and helped to raise awareness about the dangers and responsibility employees have to keep the roads safe.

Bill Howe Family of Companies asks San Diego to join in the move to reduce distracted driving. For more information or to schedule a class, contact [email protected], or call 858-534-8524.

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
