Safety: First, last, always.

Every day, every activity, on every project, we're committed to creating a safe work environment.

Construction sites are dangerous places by their very nature. Greenhut didn't achieve our excellent safety record by accident. We did it through training, adhering to a safety plan, conducting daily safety meetings and establishing a company-wide culture committed to safety. Every member of our staff and every subcontractor we hire is committed to creating the safest job site possible.

The Safety Plan

Safety starts with a plan. Before every project, we develop a site-specific safety plan that includes a site inspection to identify hazards that may already exist, implement safety measures to mitigate those hazards and establish what personal protective equipment (PPE) may be required. The plan is issued to everyone on the project including employees, subcontractors, and owner reps.

A Culture of Safety

Safety is a cornerstone of our company's culture. Our safety team assists our safety manager to oversee and review the safety performance of employees, subcontractors, and vendors. Every person on our staff is empowered to speak up when they see something unsafe. Safety is everyone’s responsibility.

Training to be Safe

An essential part of developing our culture of safety is providing ongoing training for new hires and veterans alike. Every job includes a safety orientation that covers evacuation procedures and first-aid plans. We train people to perform tasks correctly and safely, not just for their benefit but for everyone on the job site. There's no such thing as too much safety training.

Safety Every Day

Safety is a daily concern. Before the start of each shift, we review the work being done that day, discuss any recent issues and make sure every employee inspects their PPE, tools, and equipment. Likewise, the job site is inspected before and after each workday, and equipment, tools, scaffolding, and ladders are inspected to confirm they are in good working order and safe to use.

"We have made great strides in our safety culture over the past several years. Due to everyone's commitment to safety excellence, we will have the lowest Experience Modification Rating (EMR) our company has had in many years; however, our company's most important metric for success is Zero Injuries. We don't measure against industry averages or our competition, we are committing to safety excellence with no person injured on a Greenhut job."
