In addition to the directly related safety training, our laborers, carpenters, and equipment operators participate in the Construction Industry Substance Abuse Program (CISAP), wherein they have voluntarily subjected themselves to random drug testing. There are very few general contractors in this program in southwest Missouri.
Continuing Safety Education
As a result of our outstanding safety program and accident history we meet eligibility requirements to participate in the Build Safe Partnership Program, an alliance between the Builders’ Association and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This program eliminates random OSHA inspections reducing losses in production time.
In addition to all of employees being OSHA 10 hour trained all personnel are given annual first-aid and CPR update training as well as continued new and/or updated OSHA training on such topics as scaffolding, forklift operations, fall protection, excavation safety and any other subjects where we see a need for training. Our crane operators and riggers are all CCO certified, both written and hands on training. We also maintain Mine Safety Health Act (MSHA) and Process Safety Management (PSM) training for a large portion of our crew. Each employee carries a picture I.D. card indicating those areas of safety training for which their training is current.
