The first priority for every employee, no matter what their job may be, is Safety. Accidents do not just “happen.” Carelessness in any work area can lead to an accident and in many phases of our work we come in close proximity to potentially hazardous situations, materials and dangerous machinery.
Working safely is not just a matter of luck; it comes about by thinking and practicing safe work procedures until they become habits. Our Safety Handbook is intended to bring to our employee’s attention some basic work rules for safety. Employees are required to read and consult the Safety Handbook to develop insights on safety and to remind them of the importance of safety in the work place.
Each project superintendent is issued a safety program manual and will ensure all on-site employees are well versed in the safety policies, procedures and measures included within this manual by conducting weekly safety meetings and daily inspections of tools, equipment and working conditions. Additionally, copies of TOOLBOX Safety Training series is given to all project superintendents.
The Safety Policy Handbook and any other company policies included herein are not presented in their entirety due to space constraints in this presentation. We have abbreviated the enclosures for the purpose of meeting the qualification requirements. If anyone is interested in reviewing our entire Company Policy, we extend an open invitation to come to our offices to visit with us.
Our Safety Program includes, but is not limited to: compliance with OSHA requirements; random inspections by third- party safety consultants; underground utility locates; pre-construction plans and objectives; continuous good housekeeping measures; weekly safety meetings; CPR and first aid training; weekly safety checklists and inspections; and post-accident drug testing.
