Creating Safety Culture
Fowler & Hammer, Inc. is committed to creating a safe work site for our employees, subcontractors, clients, and general public on all of our construction projects.
Our health and safety program establishes policies and guidelines to assist in the prevention of occupational injuries and illnesses. We believe that the prevention of injuries is essential to all business functions and every employee has the responsibility to maintain this commitment to safety.
The safety director, project managers, superintendents, and subcontractors are all involved in the pre-planning process before construction begins.
Topics such as risk management, basic safety reminders, and dangers specific to the job are discussed in detail in order to minimize potential hazards and ensure a safe working environment.
Regular site inspections and safety meetings are personally conducted by the safety director to identify and minimize developing risks and exposures. Additionally, individual issues are addressed with site personnel and project managers as needed.
