Safety By Design Services
A CULTURE OF SAFETY
For SSCL Constructors, safety is at the forefront of each project. While it is the responsibility of management to enforce and ensure that safety procedures are followed, it is essentially the responsibility of each employee to embrace safety practices and make them part of their daily routine.
SSCL takes safety seriously, always committed to safe work habits and safe work environments. Safety is a way of life and there are no shortcuts; safety is part of our daily routine and this routine created a culture of safety within our company. We employ safety officers, provide safety education programs, perform weekly safety meetings, and remain current on the latest safety regulations.
DEFINING ON THE JOB SAFETY
Specializing and working in the laboratory and technical facility industry can present many dangers and challenges. Proper use of personal protective safety equipment, knowledge of OSHA and ANSI safety regulations, and keeping a tidy work area are key elements to ensuring everyone’s safety in the lab. Much like in the lab, our job is to enforce safety during the lab design and construction process using similar techniques.
Our superintendents are directly responsible for safety on their job sites; they are fully authorized to immediately dismiss any workers or visitors regardless of whether they are an SSCL employee, subcontractor, or a facility owner, if they fail to follow proper safety protocol. In a worst case scenario, it could be necessary for a superintendent to stop all work on a job site until unsafe conditions are corrected.
Each project manager is responsible for training SSCL field personnel in safety techniques and insist safety guidelines are followed. They monitor safety each day to ensure that safety policies are enforced.
Weekly field meetings are performed, which include the discussion of job site safety. Each employee is asked to continually evaluate job sites and inform additional personnel of the importance of safety. Safety is an individual effort that creates a team of safe employees. On-the-job safety is taken seriously, and for SSCL, safety is our number one concern.
