Working Safely isn't just a Slogan It's a frame of mind
Our most important safety assets are the mind-set of all of VT’s management and highly trained employees; to provide a safe return home to their loved ones at the end of each day. This is our number one responsibility. Consequently our safety record and MOD factor ranks have been in the highest range of the construction industry for the past 20 years.
All of our field employees receive mandated MSHA or OSHA training. We have face-to-face training sessions with our employees, in our weekly safety meetings and in our daily tailgates at the commencement of work each day. These meetings consist of all the possible “what ifs” and what could potentially arise from that days scheduled work. Accident prevention is the central focus of the Safety Program.
Red Cross in First Aid, CPR and AED
Over the years we have felt a need for our employees to be prepared for the unfortunate if it should occur, as a result all of our field employees are certified by the Red Cross in First Aid, CPR and AED use. All of our job site trailers on major projects are equipped with a First Aid Station, Defibrillator, Stretcher and Eye Wash Station. Additionally all of our field vehicles are equipped with first aid kits. Training is knowledge and it works
For years we have worked on numerous projects both in general construction and in the mining industry, we have been exposed to many Owner and General Contractor’s safety programs and management requirements. Accordingly we have become conditioned to participate in multiple safety programs and safety management systems. This has provided an additional means for VT to refine our safety program on an ongoing basis. It has also reinforced our Management’s conviction that safety is an unceasing process and our core belief that safety is a continual process of learning, teaching, applying and documenting results with total commitment.
