Denham-Blythe is dedicated to providing a strong safety environment for our employees. For instance:
We hold daily training and “toolbox talks” to go over the do’s and don’t of inspecting equipment for safety issues, and making sure everyone is training properly on the equipment they will be using.
According to OSHA, falls are the leading cause of death in construction. So, we follow best practices to avoid falls in the workplace by always wearing proper PPE, including safety harnesses, using 3-Points-of-Contact while climbing a ladder, avoiding overreaching by moving the ladder for better access, and staying behind safety barriers and away from edges.
Practicing good housekeeping keeps our crews safe from construction debris. Sharp objects like nails or screws on the floor, or piles of material haphazardly strewn about, can result in injuries that are easily preventable. By keeping the floors clean of debris and stacking things such as drywall neatly in a designated areas while wearing appropriate PPE, we can prevent injuries before they occur.
At Denham-Blythe, we want to highlight safety in every aspect of our projects. To celebrate Construction Safety Week 2022, our employees were asked what they believe helps build a strong safety culture to ensure everyone’s well-being on the jobsite. Listen to what our employees have to say regarding what safety means to them.
