Pre-Qualified Safety Performance
First, in estimating, we recognize predictable hazards associated with each construction trade and include controls in their scope of work. We pre-qualify subcontractors based on their safety performance.
OSHA Safety Standard Compliance
Second, we train all first-line supervisors to observe and avoid developing hazards. Our Superintendents all have as a minimum: current first aid/ CPR training, and the OSHA 30-hour course in Construction Safety Standards. All accidents and “near miss” incidents are investigated at this level to identify and eliminate the conditions and to prevent recurrence.
Third, we employ behavior-based training and enforcement at the worker level to eliminate unsafe work practices and careless acts. Positive and negative incentives are used to spot and correct unsafe acts as they occur.
