Excellence in Safety
We have a dedicated Safety Director and Field Safety Managers to implement our comprehensive Injury and Illness Prevention Program. Our Program reflects our commitment to the overall safety of our project teams, subcontractors, all site visitors, and the community. At CCI, we are dedicated to the elimination of incidents and their associated costs by preventing, removing, or mitigating unsafe acts and conditions, and by responding properly to challenging situations.
Safety is a Dynamic
CCI boasts and outstanding safety record well below industry average among commercial construction contractors due to our comprehensive approach. Rather than simply reacting to incidents and correcting contributing factors, our project teams are proactive and prevent incidents from occurring. Aggressive safety management techniques such as improved hazard recognition, hazard correction, and employee involvement help reduce occupational injuries and illnesses. We promote our programs as a corporate-wide process that helps us ensure a safe work environment for all.
Our Commitment to Safety
The safety of every employee, team member and contractor on the job site is our highest priority. Our Safety Director visits each location a minimum of every other week. This additional attention helps to ensure 100% compliance with CCI’s safety policies and every applicable federal, state and local guidelines. CCI is vigilant in our commitment to protect the team and provide the safest workplace possible. Our employees are provided with personal protective equipment and have access to training on the latest OSHA requirements.
