Senate Construction's Safety Policy
To Senate Construction, nothing is more important than ensuring the safety of our clients, employees, subcontractors, and the public. It is our belief that all accidents are preventable. Senate Construction prides itself on maintaining safe worksites and making accident prevention a core value and part of its company policy.
Bill Hamel, Safety Director, puts emphasis on a “team” approach to safety. The safety program consists of a safety committee which meets monthly focusing on making Senate Construction a safe place to work. Our safety training initiatives play a critical role in educating our teams about the important of job site safety, fall protection, safety equipment usage and other critical safety procedures. Our safety track record leads the industry and is a direct result of our commitment to training and developing our people. All Senate Field Personnel are OSHA 10 hour, CPR, AED and First Aid trained. All Senate Construction job sites conduct regular Tool Box Talks and are inspected regularly by a qualified in-house Safety employee.
Senate Construction expects the same attention to safety from all subcontractors and imposes a contractual obligation on that subcontractor to comply with existing safety regulations. Our subcontract agreement contains a clause that the subcontractor must comply with OSHA requirements, including all standards and regulations that have been or shall be promulgated by the agencies administering such acts. We require compliance by the subcontractor agents, employees, material suppliers, and subcontractors of any tier.
Here at Senate, we spare no expense when it comes to training our workforce, we subscribe to BLR Safety Training and BLR has been Named Best Workforce Training Solution by the SIIA. The BLR® Employee Training Center is both a Web-based training platform and a source of professionally developed training courses for the workforce.
We have a reputation for safety excellence and are regularly recognized by the Massachusetts Chapter of the AGC with a Certificate of Commendation for Excellent Safety Records. Our efforts have earned an EMR rate well below the industry standard.
