COMMITTMENT TO SAFETY
Safety is a top priority on all Konell Construction & Demolition projects. Our safety policy is to maintain a safe work environment at all times during construction for all project workers, subcontractors and the public. We realize that construction work involves many types of physical hazards, but we believe accidents and risks can be greatly reduced if everyone on the job knows and follows safe practices.
Konell has a dedicated commitment to safety and we pride ourselves on having incident free projects. We have a full time Safety manager that administers training and inspection programs to ensure our team has the most up to date safety knowledge.
We have been very fortunate to receive Associated Builders & Contractors, Inc., Platinum STEP award for the last six consecutive years. With monthly safety meetings and consistent safety monitoring of each individual job, Konell is very committed to the safety training and the evaluation process in all of our work.
Demolition and earthwork crews receive training specific to their work environment via our detailed Safety Manuel created by Khara Hillis. Our safety training combines historical events as well as current OSHA, WISHA and DEQ standards. Supervisors and foreman are subject to additional training such as: CPR/First Aid, JHA, and OSHA 10hr certifications. Supervisors conduct daily pre-task planning to ensure all daily job hazards are evaluated and communicated to crew members. Our entire field crew completes various safety courses annually like, lead, asbestos, silica, cadmium, confined space and fall protection course.
DRUG FREE WORKPLACE
Our goal is to ensure that each employee is provided a safe work environment. In order to provide the best service for our customers we must prevent injuries and property damage. We provide pre-employment and random drug screening to ensure that that our zero tolerance policy offers the highest benefit for workplace safety.
