Our Safety process



 

  • New employees are trained with the above listed courses at hire and annually or as-needed. Training courses are not limited to the above, and courses or programs are added and updated as applicable.
  • Safety briefings are conducted prior to work beginning each day, where the foremen and crew members discuss job-specific hazards, environmental hazards, and solutions to mitigate any hazards present. Post work briefings are done daily as well, targeting any hazards that occurred during the work.
  • Safety observations are conducted by the General Foreman as needed, usually every other day. 
  • Safety meetings are conducted weekly with all employees and crew members. The topics range from large-scale training operations or evaluations (such as Hurt Man Rescue, CPR training, OSHA training, etc) to discussions of long-term safety awareness and hazards present at the time (such as Heat Safety training in the summer months).
  • Post-Job Safety Evaluations are performed at the end of each project, where safety briefings are analyzed and hazard-mitigation scenarios are considered for use in upcoming projects and other applicable situations.
  • Office, administration, and management staff continually seek out safety training opportunities such as DOT Compliance classes, Substance Abuse Policy training, and OSHA standards classes.
  • “Behind the Scenes” safety - office staff is extremely diligent with all aspects of our crew’s safety, and are always looking to improve our processes. Safety items include, but are not limited to: 
    • DOT Compliance - all new CDL drivers are subject to stringent DOT protocol and regulations that the office staff adheres to strictly - ie, retrieving drivers’ safety performance history from previous employers, monitoring driver logs, performing random, periodic, and reasonable suspicion drug and alcohol testing, and upkeep of documentation.
    • Creation of Site Specific, Job Specific Safety Plans and Emergency Action Plans, Accident/Incident Reporting, and monitoring of Safety Observations
