At Steed Construction our goal is ZERO accidents and injuries on all our job sites and there have been several years that we have accomplished that goal. In recognition of these accomplishments, Steed Construction has won multiple National AGC Safety Awards (NASA) over the years. These awards are to recognizing AGC (Associated General Contractors of America) members for their Safety Excellence Since 1926.
The personal health and safety of our employees, subcontractors, and other visitors is of absolute importance to Steed Construction. Our goal is to always provide a safe, healthy and productive work environment. In an effort to attain that goal, we have implemented a company-wide Safety & Health Program and associated training.
Our objective is to reduce the number of injuries and illnesses to an absolute minimum and reach our goal of zero accidents and injuries. Our comprehensive Safety & Health Program includes all of the individual programs and documentation needed to maintain a safe and compliant jobsite and workplace. The program is reviewed regularly to ensure it is in keeping with current safety regulations.
Our Superintendents and Project Management teams complete the OSHA 30-hour for Construction Safety program. We also implement other topic or process specific training courses as necessary for each assignment. We recognize that safety is a shared responsibility and realize that our program is only effective with the full participation and commitment from all our employees, subcontractors, and visitors.
We encourage you to share your health and safety ideas and concerns with us. If you have any questions about our Safety Program or if you would like to report a safety concern at any of our job-sites, please contact our corporate Compliance Officer.
Sub Safety Requirements
We value the safety and health of every worker on our job-sites and know that in order for our subcontractors and vendors to be successful we need a good working relationship with them. For these reasons, we've developed the following guidelines:
Steed Construction, Inc. requires all subcontractors and other applicable vendors to have their own Safety Program and training in place prior to beginning work activities on our job-sites. These safety programs and training must meet or exceed OSHA regulations and the standards of Steed Construction’s Safety & Health Program (SHP).
Subcontractors and vendors must utilize individual programs for the applicable hazards associated with their work and surroundings. These programs may include Job Hazard Analysis, Hearing Conservation Programs, Fall Protection Programs, Respirator Programs, Scaffold Programs, Crane Safety Programs, Confined Entry Permits and Plans, and any other applicable work activity.
Subcontractors and vendors must provide Responsible Persons, Qualified Persons and any other trained personnel requirements, per OSHA and other relevant standards, as needed to complete their work. Subcontractors and vendors must have all relevant and required proof of training documentation available to Steed Construction upon request.
Subcontractors and vendors are required to carry out safety inspections on their work and surroundings throughout the duration of their work on our job-sites.
Steed Construction’s Project Managers will contractually obligate subcontractors and vendors to the above requirements. Jobsite supervisors will verify that the above requirements are being met. Supervisors must correct any safety or health deficiency at their jobsite.
At the discretion of Steed Construction’s management, if a subcontractor or vendor cannot provide a safety program, they must adopt this SHP before beginning work.
Additionally, subcontractors and vendors must supply all required Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to their employees to meet the requirements of each job-site. This must always include hard hats, work boots, long pants, shirts that cover the torso and shoulders, and eye protection. High-visibility clothing and/or vests should be anticipated where site-work and heavy equipment is being used. Other PPE may be required as conditions demand. This may include hearing protection, work gloves, respirators, etc. Steed Construction is not responsible for providing these items for your employees.
If you need additional guidance, would like to review the Steed Construction SHP, or would like to talk about a safety issue or problem, please contact our Compliance Officer.
