Safety is a deeply ingrained priority throughout Fisher Construction Group. We understand that safety is right for our employees and subcontractors as well as for delivering projects efficiently. Accordingly, Fisher has developed a Comprehensive Safety Management Program for which we rigorously review and improve. We’re proud to share that our Lost-Time Incident Rate of 2.65% surpasses the industry average, as does our EMR rate – which outperforms the industry by 17%. Not only have we exceeded industry averages for more than five years in a row, but we unfailingly act to improve on this success.
Fisher’s Comprehensive Safety Management Program is designed to instill a high level awareness of safe job site practices in all team members. The core components of our program include:
Safety Training Videos: Connect to Fisher Safety Videos as a supplement to the company’s safety manual.
Clearly Defined Safety Policies. All employees and subcontractors are required to follow the policies which are outlined in the Fisher’s safety manual. These policies meet or exceed industry standards and apply to a wide range of situations which may arise in the pursuit of our business. Fisher’s safety program encompasses many topics including hazard awareness, emergency preparedness, and site-specific protection plans.
Continual Communication of Safety Policies. Safety awareness is continually reinforced throughout the entire workforce. Safety orientation meetings are held for all employees at each new job site, along with weekly job site safety meetings and ongoing equipment training programs as the project progresses.
Maintaining a safe work environment is everyone’s responsibility. The job site superintendent leads the safety team. Procedures and accident prevention measures are monitored by our safety coordinator, who oversees safety policies and practices at all Fisher’s job sites. This ensures awareness. We multiply its impact by insisting all employees take ownership of their safety and the safety everyone involved in a project.
