Precision’s safety program is a high priority for management and field employees. The mission of our safety program is to ensure that workers at all levels are properly trained in the safest ways to perform their jobs. Our commitment to safety is demonstrated by our commitment to on-going training, a full-time safety director, quarterly management meetings that stress jobsite safety, required weekly safety jobsite meetings and daily huddles. Precision works closely with our insurance risk managers to complete job site safety audits and evaluations on a regular basis. We maintain a strong focus on safety in every task we perform and this has become an important element that sets us apart from our competition.
Precision provides training for all levels of personnel to meet and exceed OSHA requirements. This begins with our new hire orientation, which involves safety video training, review of the safety manual, and on the job safety training.
We require a high level of safety training for all field supervision and provide the tools necessary to complete the jobs safely with the emphasis of preventing accidents and ensuring a safe working environment for all employees. Precision’s commitment to safety also involves ensuring a drug-free workforce through new hire drug screen requirements and random drug screens on all employees. We meet and exceed the requirements of the Drug Free Workplace Program of the State of Georgia Chamber of Commerce.
Our Safety Training Van travels to the jobsites to provide project specific training through videos and instruction. We have three OSHA 500 certified trainers and hold our own 10 and 30 hour OSHA classes. Our training goal for this year is to have all field employees complete the OSHA 10 hour class. Precision recognizes our employees for our safety success by our Safety Incentive Program, which includes monetary awards for no lost time jobsite accidents or injuries.
Our NCCI Experience Modification ratings are among the best in the nation and we are recognized yearly for our exceptional safety record by construction related associations such as the Associated Builders and Contractors, Associated General Contractors, and insurance groups. Precision values and practices safety and we are proud that this commitment is reflected in our safety record.
