Project safety is our No. 1 goal. The objective of our safety program is identical to the owner’s – the elimination of accidents and work-related illnesses. The program is designed to achieve zero fatalities, zero permanent disabling injuries, zero lost workday cases, and the reduction of OSHA recordables.
Embodied in a formal, written document, the program complies with all OSHA requirements for safe work practices. It is strictly enforced at work sites by dedicated safety managers.
The program focuses on three primary areas:
• Continual education for superintendents, assistant superintendents, foremen and project managers.
• Pre-project planning and prevention, including client and site-specific safety requirements as well as drug screenings.
• Enforcement, which encompasses daily site inspections by project staff and site audits by corporate safety managers.
