Hazard Prevention and Control
Alvada Construction is committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for all of its workers and subcontractors. Alvada’s goal for each project is to have “zero incidents”. Management and field personnel actively participate in the development and continuous improvement of our safety program. We make a conscientious effort to comply with all federal, state, and local regulations, going above and beyond some guidelines.
Alvada’s robust training program raises awareness of the importance of safety and the understanding that hazards exist in the workplace. This awareness enables workers to recognize and eliminate, or control potential hazards. All field personnel are required to attend and complete the OSHA 10 hr construction hazard awareness training and all personnel with supervisory responsibilities are required to take the OSHA 30 hr hazard awareness course. Pre-job safety meetings, weekly jobsite tool box talks, safety audits and hazard analysis of job sites, all reinforce safety as our 1st priority.
Employees are provided with proper well maintained personal protective equipment. We have a 100% hardhat and safety glasses policy for all job sites. Quality tools and equipment, backed by a well equipped tool maintenance shop, enables Alvada to insist on the highest of standards of performance and safe practices.
Doing a job quickly in an unsafe manner is NOT acceptable. Doing a task the safe way the first time, saves time and avoids costly injuries and project downtime from accidents. Alvada believes that keeping our workforce healthy through our emphasis on safety is a top priority, makes good business sense and is paramount in corporate planning.
