2017 SAFETY MOTTO: IT STARTS WITH ME
Job safety affects everything from project planning to the bottom line. Where safety is given a high priority, you can be assured that strict quality standards are also being upheld. MTech emphasizes safety as a part of our culture. Our management team communicates and enforces safety principles and our team members routinely demonstrate their commitment to safety.
This dedication shows in the field in each and in every phase of our projects. MTech recently received an ABC National Safety Excellence award for continued commitment to jobsite safety and for an exemplary safety performance program.
Communication promotes compliance
On the job, we ensure that all projects have MTech Safety Manuals, Material Safety Data Sheets, Federal and State standards, documentation support (accident/injury/near miss report forms, etc.) and that team members are trained to properly fill out the necessary documentation.
We emphasize compliance with all Safety standards through frequent on-site inspections, constant communication with field personnel and Safety Program updates.
Planning prevents issues
Before work begins, MTech develops a safety plan in conjunction with Project Management and Supervision. During the proposal process and after being awarded a contract, our Safety Director and Safety Manager formulate a site-specific Safety Program to enhance clients’ or prime contractors’ Safety Manuals. The program includes Safety Orientation and Procedures for both management and field employees.
Our current EMR is 0.65. An Experience Modification Rate (EMR) of 1.0 is considered the industry average.
