Safety and training are key factors in our everyday operations. A safe jobsite is important for our employees and clients. We make it a priority to stay current on OSHA safety rules and regulations. Keeping safety at the forefront of our operations has enabled us to consistently maintain an insurance modifier rate below the national average of 1.0. This translates to a cost savings that gets passed onto our clients.
Once a year, we dedicate an entire day focused on safety training administered by Associated Builders and Contractors. Safety day is a great opportunity for our staff to get refreshed and learn new safety information.
The classroom portion of the day covers a wide variety of topics including:
- Asbestos Awareness
- Back Safety
- Behavior Based Safety
- Cranes & Derricks
- Fall Protection
- Fire Prevention
- OSHA 10 & 30 Hour Courses
- Power Tools
- PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
- Respiratory Protection
- Role of the Competent Person Safety Committees
- Stairs & Ladders
- Steel Erection
- Trenching & Excavating
- Welding & Cutting
- Work Zone Safety
Our team is properly trained on how to inspect and operate various construction equipment including all terrain aerial lift, forklift and scissor lifts.
ABC STEP Program & OSHA Partnership
At DGC, we’ve taken our commitment to safety a step further with our involvement in ABC’s STEP Program as well as the ABC OSHA Partnership. The requirements of these programs mean dedicated safety program, demonstrated safety on jobsites, documentation of safety training and practices. We also have a safety director on staff, who ensures safety is always first at DGC!
