At Frisco Concrete, we take safety seriously. We believe that all employees have the right to a safe and healthy workplace, and we are committed to providing our employees with the training and resources they need to stay safe on the job. In this article, we will discuss our commitment to employee safety and the steps we take to ensure that our employees are safe on the job.
Our Commitment to Employee Safety
At Frisco Concrete, we understand that construction work can be dangerous. We are committed to providing our employees with a safe and healthy workplace. Our commitment to safety starts with our safety policy, which outlines our expectations for safety and health in the workplace. This policy is communicated to all employees, and we hold regular safety meetings to reinforce our commitment to safety.
In addition to our safety policy, we have a safety committee that meets regularly to discuss safety concerns and make recommendations for improvements. The safety committee is made up of employees from different areas of the company, including management, administration, and operations. This ensures that we have a broad range of perspectives and expertise when it comes to safety.
Training and Resources
One of the most important ways we ensure employee safety is through training. All new employees receive safety training before they start work. This training covers topics such as hazard recognition, personal protective equipment, and emergency procedures. We also provide ongoing safety training to our employees to ensure that they stay up-to-date on the latest safety procedures and best practices.
We also provide our employees with the resources they need to stay safe on the job. This includes personal protective equipment such as hard hats, safety glasses, and gloves. We also provide safety equipment such as harnesses and safety nets for employees working at heights. All equipment is regularly inspected and maintained to ensure that it is in good condition.
Job Site Safety
We take job site safety very seriously. Before any work begins, we conduct a thorough job site analysis to identify any potential hazards. We then develop a job hazard analysis (JHA) for each task to identify the steps that need to be taken to complete the task safely. The JHA is communicated to all employees working on the task, and it is reviewed regularly to ensure that it is still relevant.
We also have a site safety program that includes regular inspections of job sites. These inspections are conducted by our safety committee, and they are used to identify any potential hazards or safety concerns. We also have a system for reporting and investigating incidents, and we use this information to identify areas for improvement and make changes to our safety procedures as needed.
Culture of Safety
At Frisco Concrete, we believe that safety is everyone’s responsibility. We have created a culture of safety where all employees are encouraged to take an active role in promoting safety. This includes reporting potential hazards, participating in safety meetings, and making suggestions for improvements.
We also recognize and reward employees who demonstrate a commitment to safety. This includes recognizing employees who report hazards or near misses, as well as employees who consistently follow safety procedures and make suggestions for improvements.
At Frisco Concrete, safety is our top priority. We are committed to providing our employees with a safe and healthy workplace, and we take a proactive approach to identifying and addressing potential hazards. Through training, resources, job site safety programs, and a culture of safety, we are able to maintain a safe work environment for our employees. We believe that our commitment to safety not only protects our employees but also helps us to deliver high-quality work for our customers. So come contact or call us today!
