Providing you with high quality services and products that are safely delivered is our priority. This means we must do three things well:
1. Protect building occupants, visitors and staff
2. Prevent injury to service crews and construction personnel
3. Safeguard your building and assets
THE SAFE WAY IS THE RIGHT WAY
Safety demands executive direction and attention starting with company owner Mark Swansburg and General Manager John Maguire. Installation and Service Supervisors are responsible for safety just as they are for quality, production, efficiency, and profitability. All employees are also fully accountable for following safe work processes and procedures on each project.
WS Aiken takes a proactive approach to safety, involving safety planning from the initial review of a prospective project to its completion. Projects are planned and shared with the onsite Supervisor(s) and crew members. Additionally, WS Aiken has a full time Safety Manager on staff and we have partnered with a 3rd party safety consultant that inspects all ongoing projects monthly to ensure we are following best available safety practices.
As a baseline, we require that field personnel complete the OSHA 10 course and Slips, Trips and Fall Prevention along with ongoing training covering the topics listed below and more:
Aerial Lift Use
First Aid & CPR
Hand, Wrist and Finger
Ladder, stairway and scaffolding
NFPA Fire Watch
Personal Protective Equipment
Rigging and Signaling
A daily Hazard Task Analysis is performed at the start of each work day.
Toolbox Talks occur weekly with the Safety Manager and field personnel.
Our Installation and Service Supervisors also complete the OSHA 30 course.
All field personnel are drug tested bi-annually.
