At Southland Contracting, Inc., we are committed to providing the safest possible work site for our employees, employees of subcontractors, owners and the general public. It is our belief that all accidents are preventable, our goal is to send every employee home whole and healthy everyday. To achieve this goal we have developed a safety program, which includes...
Project Hazard Analysis
Prior to work beginning, the safety director reviews the contract documents with the project team to identify potentially hazardous tasks, conditions, materials, or special training required to perform the task.
This is specific task analysis by the superintendent and foreman. They discuss, with the crew, the hazards anticipated with the task, equipment needed to perform the job safely, and personal protective equipment to be worn.
Safety Orientation and Training
All new employees are required to go through our safety orientation program prior to starting work and all employees are given more specific training for complex or technical jobs
Drug and Alcohol Abuse Program
Our drug and alcohol abuse program includes pre-employment screening, random testing, and post accident testing. We also give extra consideration to subcontractors who have a similar policy in effect.
Safety Meetings and Outside Consultants
We have safety committees to improve local workplace safety programs. They also work together to implement improvements to our company wide safety policies.
