industry-recognized safety program //
McCoy Rockford is a safety authority in the industry. Our company’s safety program is directed by a full-time Safety and Risk Manager and includes in-house routine safety training and refresher courses and OSHA safety training. We also perform onsite Job Safety Analysis (JSAs) prior to beginning any project to address all potential hazards. Once a project begins, onsite safety is monitored by OSHA-certified field supervisors, who are also trained by the National Safety Council in CPR and First Aid.
We operate the “Stop Work Authority” process, which requires a stop, notify, correct and resume approach for resolution of perceived unsafe conditions. SafeStart, a behavioral program, and Smith System, a driver program, are also company-wide safety initiatives. To maintain our safety culture, employees receive our safety manual, comprised of over 80 documents detailing safety guidelines and procedures for both the office environment and commercial job site. The manual addresses everything from electrical safety, tool safety and fall protection, to environmental handling and blood-borne pathogen exposure.
Our team takes safety very seriously. We acknowledge how important it is to work safely in all environments. The McCoy Rockford team is committed to:
Working safely, because nothing is more important – not sales nor profits.
Meeting or exceeding all applicable safety, health and environmental laws and regulations in all our business activities.
Continuous improvement of our safety, health and environmental performance.
Being the industry leader in conducting our business responsibly.
Management responsibility for safety culture (this is a measure of managerial performance).
Individual responsibility for completing all actions safely.
We have a culture of safety and we have adapted our current training program to include additional safety measures.
