Our safety record is vitally important to us, and we apply best practices every day to maintain it. Running a safe job site is a top priority for us, and we believe our safety efforts are the responsibility of each and every one of our employees. At Schaefer, safety is more than just something we do – it’s part of the fabric of our culture.
No job, task or schedule is more important than the health and well-being of anyone on (or near) our job sites. Our goal is always zero accidents, and we have proven it’s possible to build and renovate buildings without injuries or accidents.
How We Stay Safe on Every Job Site
We work under an Incident Protection Plan (IPP), which begins with a comprehensive, pre-construction safety review in which our Safety Director, Project Superintendent, and any sub-contractors on the job meet to identify all safety issues associated with the project. The Project Superintendent is required to maintain a written copy of our standard (and site-specific) safety program, a detailed description of the potential issues identified during the safety review, and the IPP for avoiding accident or injury.
We communicate our focus on safety with all new employees during their orientation meetings, and we require them to watch various safety videos and attend safety training classes. We even require this of our project managers and executive staff. We also employ a consultant who evaluates each job site and provides various safety reports to our team. Schaefer has been very successful at making safety a core cultural value – not just some elusive, sought-after benchmark.
