Serving as the Director of Environmental Health and Safety at both Caldwell Tanks and Preload, Wilson sees his job as more than making sure people return home from work safely. He sees safety as an opportunity to enrich the physical, emotional and spiritual health of the associates he serves.

Bringing the Hope of Christ into the Workplace

I think now, more than ever, people are hurting. People need hope, and so I think being able to bring Christ into the workplace, bring faith into work, it's important for us. It's important to be able to truly, genuinely care for people and reach people when they're hurting. When people are going through crisis, they need hope. Ever since I can remember, I've had a desire to protect people and care for people. Now it's kind of bringing everything together for me and that it's not a work safety care. And then on the weekends, I'm able to do ministry work or go to church or whatever, things like that. Now it's an opportunity to bring my whole self to work and to do what I've always loved to do, which is simply to love on people regardless of their faith, regardless of their decisions or where they are in their life to care for all people.

Stewarding Christ’s Blessings

I feel like we're called to be a good steward of not just our resources, but our time, and I feel like I've been called to be a steward of the people that God has placed around me and this great company, and so I want to use that time wisely. I want to do the most that I can with the opportunity I've been given to care for people in a way that I think I'm generally called to do. Certainly caring for safety is a big part of it, but being able to take that to a deeper level to be able to say, Hey, I don't want you just to be physically healthy and well. I want you to be spiritually and emotionally healthy as well. What I've seen is people hurting because of pandemics, because of drug overdoses and suicide and alcoholism and a number of things where people are really hurting and there's lack of hope and there's despair, and we have an opportunity to bridge that gap to really bring people in and say, Hey, you have value, you have worth, and we want to be those hands and feet to say, put an arm around you and say, let us bring you in and care for you in a way that maybe you've not experienced before.

Caring for Those God has Put in Our Path

We want to be active. We want to be engaged in this. I like to say I want to be a person of action. I don't want to sit there and kind of in the closet behind the scenes trying to care for people. I want it to be out in the open. Caring for people can look like a lot of different things, but I think you have to be present first to be able to do that. What I find is that it gives us that opportunity to reach people on a more meaningful level, on a deeper level. There's something deeper there and there's a deeper sense in caring and that I'm actually getting invested in their life. To me, that's our business. Our business is caring for our people, loving on our people, and to me, every business that believes in caring and for their people should have some sort of a care program in place.

Being Like Jesus in the Workplace

I'm always reminded that Jesus, he went to the well. He went into Samaria and pursued people, and I want to pursue people wherever they are. I feel like God was showing me this is the generational impact that you're having, that sons are coming home, fathers are coming home, children are being born, and family trees are going on. It is such a huge impact on people's lives, and so faith at work is putting gasoline on that to say, not only are we going to protect people physically, but now we have an opportunity to make a much bigger impact in people's lives. That completely changes family trees and changes company trajectories, company performance. I mean, it's impacting the company as well, and some of that is not necessarily quantifiable, but it's happening, and we're seeing it and we're witnessing it, and so that opportunity to be a part of that is really neat. It's really neat. There's nothing that's out of bounds for me that would say, oh no, I don't want to care for you. I want to care for everyone. And so that gets me going in the morning. It gets me excited. It gets me coming in to say, Hey, I've got an opportunity today to make a difference.
