SAFETY PROGRAMS FOR CONSTRUCTION
We Make Safety Our No. #1 Priority
The Interstate team has completed
more than 25,000 hours of safety classes for construction within the last five years.
That’s nearly 36,000 construction safety classes.
WHO WOULD YOU TRUST YOUR BUSINESS TO?
One of Interstate’s core values is doing the right thing. Part of that principal involves our investment in one of the most advanced safety programs for construction in our industry in an effort to protect our clients, our employees and the public from injuries.
Interstate has committed to make safety a top priority through the establishment of a full-time safety department and construction safety classes.
In 2015, the Department of Transportation will likely implement a mandate for companies utilizing trucks over 10,000 GVW. The mandate will require companies to install and use electronic logging devices in an effort to curb driver hour violations. Interstate has been utilizing such a system since 2012 in an endeavor to not only comply with State and Federal DOT regulations, but also assist our team members to arrive safely at job sites around the country.
We train and implement our safety methods and safety classes for construction according to the Environmental Protection Agency, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and Institute of Inspection Cleaning Restoration and Certification standards. At Interstate Restoration, we are continually striving to provide a safe work environment and safe restoration job sites through our safety programs for construction.
In addition, every person in our company takes construction safety classes. Safety classes for construction cover a wide array of topics, from anti-sexual harassment and driver safety, to more advanced education such as OSHA 30-hour training.
This has been a significant investment in equipment and training for Interstate, but we believe both will not only benefit our company and our team members, but also our clients as well.
