It is the policy of Thieneman Construction, Inc. to strive for the highest safety standards on our projects. Safety does not occur by chance. It is the result of careful attention to all company operations by those who are directly and indirectly involved. Employees at all levels must work diligently to execute the company’s policy of maintaining safety and occupational health.
Our safety program has been developed to assure compliance with Federal, State and Local Regulations with particular emphasis on The Occupational Health and Safety Act of 1970 (OSHA), and the OSHA regulations that apply to our construction operations. It is the obligation of all employees to be knowledgeable of the standards established by these agencies and to implement the rules and regulations contained therein on projects under their direction.
Regard for the safety of the general public, our own employees and the employees of our subcontractors is a supreme responsibility of all levels of our organization. We intend to prevent any accidental injury, property damage, fire damage, and occupational illness. All of which could result in human suffering. Accidents, even minor ones, cause pain, both physical and mental. Prevention of injury and illness is a goal well worthy of our achieving.
A safe operation is organized, clean and efficient. If every employee views accidents in the same way we consider all other aspects of our operations, we will be in a better position not only to control accidents but also to improve the total performance of our company. It is therefore of utmost importance that all aspects of our safety program be strictly adhered to and that the intent of this program be followed to the letter.
Thieneman Construction, Inc. employs a fulltime Corporate Safety Director to ensure compliance and safety standards are maintained to the highest level from new employee orientation, continuing education and training programs, to job specific safety plans.
