CAS Constructors’ goal for safety is simple: execute our work in the safest means possible to achieve Zero Incidents on all of our projects.
CAS believes that all injuries and occupational illnesses can be prevented. We work tirelessly to hone our means and methods to ensure predictable safety results. Our corporate SafeRing program uses four guiding principles to achieve Zero Incidents. We plan, communicate, observe and improve.
By implementing the detailed SafeRing program, we will construct the project for the client with the highest regard for the safety of the entire team. We have found that safe projects are more organized, on schedule, cleaner, and more positive places to work. The cumulative effect of this attitude becomes a culture where workers feel empowered to take proactive steps towards a safer work environment.
In addition to developing a project-specific safety program, we promote a culture of safety. We use a combination of institutional and behavioral methods to build a safe work environment. OSHA standards are the basic building blocks of our safety plan, but we continually aim to surpass them in our quest for Zero Injuries. Annual safety training is conducted to ensure that all workers have a base line level of comfort on working safely. Training may cover confined spaces, lockout/tag out procedures, fall prevention, and making sure equipment is maintained safely. All employees are expected to attend this annual training including the project managers and other administration which solidifies the message that everyone is responsible for safety at CAS.
CAS is committed to engaging workers in safety initiatives on projects in order to deliver a superior product. By building a customized safety program for each project, we are able to demonstrate to those actually doing the work each day that they matter to us. The workers leave the site each day with the core belief they are involved in something special: a project that is safe where their efforts are recognized and their personal well-being has value.
