OUR FIRST PRIORITY
SAFETY AT ZWICK CONSTRUCTION
Safety is our highest priority. Zwick strongly believes in taking a proactive approach regarding safety. In order to ensure safety on every project, Zwick employs several strategies:
Zwick Construction strives to have extremely clean and organized jobsites. By doing so, the job sites are much safer and contribute to a better working environment for employees and visitors. In fact, project superintendents frequently check in-person and using a drone to ensure that the sites are clean and organized.
At Zwick, we provide enhanced safety awareness through weekly onsite safety meetings. These meetings are a requirement for all employees working on the jobsite. They cover specific safety risks on the project in general and on certain new elements to the project made apparent as work continues.
During the Construction Phase itself, the jobsite is kept secure. Personnel enter and exit through a single gate and materials are stored safely onsite. Jobsites have signage surrounding the project that inform employees, subs, and visitors to the project of certain safety precautions, locations for specific needs, and more. It is not uncommon for projects to have 24-hour video surveillance of the property.
Prior to the Construction Phase, a Site-Specific Safety Plan is assembled, based on the requirements of the project site. Variables are evaluated like manpower, site conditions, and nearby features (such as a school, hospital, canal, etc.). Trainings are designed and delivered to the site team as well as each person who will work on the site. Zwick’s onsite policies and procedures have been formalized and well-documented in a Safety Program that is present on every jobsite.
