An integral part of our safety program is training.
We address job-specific safety training in:
First Aid | Leadership for Safety Excellence | WHMI | Flag Person Training Principles of Health & Safety Management | Trenching and Ground Disturbance | Confined Spaces |
Downer Contracting is a firm believer that “Safety is First” and implements all necessary actions to ensure safety throughout every level of the company.
Project Estimators consult with Field Operation Personnel and the Company Safety Officer to ensure that the project’s contractual obligations can be completed safely. After receiving the contract, competent personnel specific to the site assess all hazards. Then, they eliminate or implement control measures to protect all personnel on that site as well as the public and the environment.
Informal and formal worksite inspections are conducted. Weekly safety meetings are held on site to identify possible changing situations or “near misses” that may have occurred.
From an equipment standpoint, we utilize a preventative maintenance program to reduce equipment failures and their potential accidents.
Leadership is promoted throughout all levels of our company. Continued training, education, and positive attitudes ensure a successful safety program that we are proud of.
We endorse a drug- and alcohol-free work environment.
