Safety

Atlas considers all employees as the number one asset of the company. This philosophy begins with safety in mind. The purpose of our Safety Program is to provide policies and guidelines to eliminate negligence and provide a safe environment in which to work. The prevention of injuries is the first and primary consideration, facility and property damage is secondary. Our program outlines and defines responsibilities, action steps, and methods to prevent injury and monetary loss.  By utilizing manpower and available resources, efficiency and quality of the project are increased.  Through continued efforts of stewardship, preventative maintenance, quality assurance, training, and motivation of employees, accidents can be minimized and managed effectively..

Along with our project managers and project superintendents receiving OSHA 30 hour training, we have an extensive safety program that is facilitated by our Safety Coordinator.  We have formulated our written policy to facilitate full OSHA compliance and to guide the operations of our construction projects.  It is a condition of employment with Atlas Construction Group, L.L.C. that all employees and subcontractors adhere faithfully to the requirements of this policy, as well as the safety rules, instructions, and procedures set forth. This includes having an understanding of OSHA Federal Regulations. This program ensures that all trades on the project sites are conducting their activities in a manner that is in accordance with the industry standards. Project superintendents perform daily JHA’s (Jobsite Hazard Analysis) reports and conduct weekly safety training on the construction site. Lastly, we participate in the State of Oklahoma’s voluntary OSHA site inspections that provide all on-site contractors with valuable feedback throughout the construction process.

We have a “Focus Four” approach. This means that for each site visited, we direct our main attention to four of the most cited standards regarding to OSHA.

  • Fall Hazards
  • Struck-By Hazards
  • Electrocution Hazards
  • Caught-In or
    Between Hazards

The Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) promote effective worksite-based safety and health. In the VPP, management, labor, and OSHA establish cooperative relationships at workplaces that have implemented a comprehensive safety and health management system. Approval into VPP is OSHA’s official recognition of the outstanding efforts of employers and employees who have achieved exemplary
occupational safety and health.
