Our safety record has been exemplary. We provide each project with a site-specific safety plan that is implemented in conjunction with our Corporate Safety Program. The project specific safety plan identifies potential risks inherent to the tasks at hand and will identify measures to be taken to reduce or eliminate those risks before the work begins. The combination of our policies and procedures with effective loss control, has afforded us an above average rating as a general contractor.
It is our policy that every employee is entitled to a safe workplace. Our management concept is not productivity based; it is safe productivity based, and each task begins with proper analysis of hazards associated with any given tasks. There is no job or service task so important or so urgent that we cannot take the time to work safely. The safety of our personnel is of prime importance.
Our Safety Program complies with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Safety and Health Requirements Manual EM 385-1-1, the United States Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration Regulations and all other Local, State and Federal Safety Regulations.
A vital element in our remarkable safety record is our daily on-site safety initiatives. Our Superintendent, Quality Control Inspector and/or Task Order Manager will be on-site daily reviewing all activities in the field and documenting hazards, corrective actions, deficiencies, and follow-up to maintain a hazard-free environment. Additional training such as confined space training, HAZWOPER training and PPE Training will be conducted by qualified safety training personnel as required for specific work tasks.
Prior to work shifts, the Superintendents will meet with the work crews to review a detailed Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) for the day. Each AHA is specific to the work to be performed, and addresses the unique hazards associated with the work, and the tasks that will be conducted to avoid or eliminate the risks. The plan is discussed with all crew members and recorded on the AHA form. This program has not only reduced accidents and injuries; it has fostered a team spirit consistent with our theme of “looking out for each other.”
In addition to the corporate safety plan, every project has a site specific safety plan. All subcontractors are required to comply with the corporate and project specific safety plan as well as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Safety and Health Requirements Manual EM 385-1-1, the United States Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration Regulations and all other Local, State and Federal Safety Regulations
