Maintaining Safe Working Conditions
At Elzinga & Volkers, safety is our top priority. We are sincerely interested in the safety of each and every employee. We have developed, promoted and continually enforce a safety program designed to keep accidents to an absolute minimum, work areas meticulously maintained, and tools and equipment mechanically sound. We do everything reasonably possible to maintain safe work conditions.
With partnership and support from our clients, subcontracting partners and employees, we’ve accomplished great leaps in construction safety over the past few years. Here are just a few of our safety achievements:
Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) honored our safety program with the Diamond Level STEP Award for the second consecutive year. This is the highest award given by the ABC and recognizes our commitment to employing effective safety practices on jobsites. The award is based on 20 key elements of contractor safety programs such as management commitment, pre-planning for safety on jobsites, safety training and resources committed to safety. The STEP process, which was developed and written by contractors for contractors, is a tool designed to objectively evaluate safety programs, policies, procedures and training. We are honored to have been awarded this achievement.
In addition, we were awarded the Safety Award of Excellence in 2012 and 2013. We are the only contractor that has ever received this award two years in a row.
We partner with many organizations to improve and maintain our safety program. Without their assistance and guidance, we wouldn't have been able to accomplish all of these prestigious milestones. Thank you to the following partners:
