Safety

Atlas’s approach to safety has continuously led to low Experience Modification Rates (EMR). Along with customized safety plans for every project and a dedicated safety coordinator, each member of the project crew from top-level executives
to the field superintendent has completed a minimum OSHA 10 hour safety certification course. Personnel with direct safety responsibilities have further specialized training.

Our Safety Coordinator recently earned his Bachelor’s degree in Construction Science and is on a different site every day striving to mitigate any unforeseen hazards that are imposed on the jobsite. While on the jobsite, the Safety Coordinator performs routine safety audits regarding all aspects of a professional safety culture.

By using our “Focus Four” approach, it helps us to aim directly toward complying with OSHA standards, while also going above and beyond any OSHA workplace requirements. We believe that a safe and healthy workplace must be effectively maintained in order for every working person to return home to their family in a safe manner.

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 social recognition of the outstanding sorts of employers and employees who have achieved exemplary occupational safety and health.

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
