"Safely, the only way to work!" That is the motto by which we live.
We are committed to safety above all else, and this commitment is central to everything we do. Our proactive approach creates value for our clients and safeguards our most important asset: our employees. Our entire team is dedicated to maintaining a safety-focused and environmentally sound business; our safety culture is promoted by each member of our team through planning, implementing and evaluating safety practices on a daily basis.
Our safety program is proactive and action-oriented; everyone from management to trades people are involved in making a zero-incident workplace a reality. We use daily pre-task planning sessions, ongoing safety inspections, weekly safety meetings, safety seminars, special equipment training, safety manual reviews and email updates to assist in attaining our goal of zero incidents.
Our supervisors receive training in the OSHA 30-hour Construction Out Reach Program, as well as classes in Fall Protection, Excavation and Trenching, First Aid, CPR and Confined Space Entry Procedures, Substance Abuse Awareness and Recognition. New employees are required to complete our New Hire Safety Orientation Program.
Our substance abuse program includes Pre-hire, Post Accident, Fitness for Duty, For Cause and Random Drug and Alcohol Testing. All employees, including management, are subject to random testing equal to 25% of our annual workforce.
Our safety culture at Shook focuses on keeping motivational messages and emotions at the forefront of everything we do - every day. Family-oriented messages remind us to to keep safety at the top of our minds with posters and banners placed throughout our projects. Bringing our families to the jobsites with these visual reminders positively impacts how we approach and value safety.
