Knowing how to do something won’t get it done. The team has to buy in and participate. After all, it’s our team that implements our safety program. They must make safe choices – even when the hours get long, patience gets short, and a supervisor isn’t watching.
We have a current EMR of .73
Safety is the primary core value of our company. And we are committed to our safety motto: everyone makes the safe choice every time. To achieve that goal, we follow a two-part safety program. The first part is maintaining current, written safety standards. This written program is a living document and every day at every job our employees proactively seek to identify potentially unsafe situations and control those conditions before safety is at issue. So, our written program is always open to expansion and improvement.
While the first part is necessary, it is the second that truly drives our safety program – making the safe choice. At Amason, our employees do that. Our safety program is successful because of the power of shared dedication regardless of job title. We maintain safe jobsites primarily because of the well thought out, hard work from everyone involved – the project manager to the laborer – regardless of how long the work day may be or how many work days there are in a given week.
A company’s real safety program is what its employees are actually doing. Our employees know that Amason will support the safe decision every time. And it is because our employees are committed to executing our safety program and, when possible, improving it, that we have received both national and state awards for our safety program.
