Management personnel from the president through the project supervisor attend formal annual safety training sessions. This improves safety awareness and provides instruction for implementing safety regulations on the construction site. When required, additional safety training is provided at the job site so that coworkers can recognize unsafe conditions and prevent injury.
Austin Concrete Development schedules OSHA re-certification training throughout the year focused on OSHA-10 and OSHA-30 certifications. Field supervisors receive weekly safety training and reminders in the form of “tool-box” talks and specialized safety training for job-specific tasks, such as fall protection, rigging, scaffolding, and trenching.
Periodic Job Review
Periodic job site reviews are conducted by our Vice President of Construction, who is also our acting Safety Director to help ensure full compliance with the company’s Safety Policies, OSHA, and any other applicable local, state, or federal regulations. He assesses the effectiveness level and performance of all job site personnel in meeting the company’s standards as well as those required by any other regulatory body. The results of the review are discussed with job site management. Any and all serious lapses in safety are documented in the employee’s permanent file and discussed in detail at our weekly meeting of Senior Management.
