A Teamwork Approach to Safety
take responsibility & be accountable
As a dedicated group of Employee Owners, we understand that safety requires a teamwork approach to impact, influence, and inspire one another to be responsible in keeping each other safe and healthy. Each Employee Owner has the right to derive personal satisfaction from his/her job and the prevention of occupational injury or illness is of such importance that safety must always be given top priority.
The commitment we make every day with regards to safety is to adhere to our industry leading safety standards, hold safety at the forefront of everything we do, continually improve our processes, demonstrate leadership, and promote comprehensive safety programs, policies, and procedures. SPAN expects all Employee Owners and its partners to take responsibility and be accountable for making this commitment to themselves, our clients, our community, and our families.
a commitment to safety
Our priorities put safety first – a philosophy that extends from the office to the field. Where safety is concerned, there is simply no room for compromise. Here are a few components of our safety program:
injury & illness prevention plan
SPAN’s program utilizes extensive and informative training materials for each employee – on every jobsite.
sky-web II system
An ingenious suspension safety net system that SPAN co-designed and utilizes on every project. This system greatly reduces the distance of falls; thus reducing severe injuries.
dedicated safety director
SPAN’s dedicated safety director oversees all aspects of employee/project safety and strives to continually raise the bar of our safety standards.
At the SPAN University, employees are able to practice safety procedures, work with components, build mock-ups, and test new systems. SPAN is dedicated to ensuring that employees are well-equipped with the tools and skills they need to perform their jobs safely.
subcontractor safety standards
SPAN is dedicated to upholding jobsite safety – even for our subcontractors. Our subs are prequalified by strict safety standards.
working drug & alcohol free
Working safe means working drug and alcohol free. SPAN expects its employees to take responsibility and to be accountable for making this commitment to themselves and the safety of their workplace. SPAN regularly conducts tests for drug and alcohol use.
