Our Cornerstones of Safety
C.A. Hull employs numerous industry-leading best practices, including some of our main cornerstones of safety below:
- Safety Pre-Planning - Planning the work around safety plays a major role in how we protect our employees every day. Safety planning begins during our bid process and does not stop until the project is complete.
- Safety by Employee Empowerment - Safety is a team effort by all. Our ultimate objective of a safe, accident-free work environment can only be accomplished with a dedicated, concerted effort by every individual involved with the project, from management to skilled tradesman.
- N.E.S.T. (New Employee Safety Training) - New employees must complete our N.E.S.T. program. The main goals of the program are to empower employees to become proactive leaders in safety, to help them identify and correct hazards, and to provide specific hands-on tool and activity training.
- Safety Alerts - Safety alerts are distributed company-wide explaining current safety matters, along with corrective and preventative action plans.
- Safety Committee - Safety committee members meet every week to discuss company safety, recap recent performance, lessons learned, safety "wins", action plans, upcoming operations, and to review our safety program and procedures.
- Corporate Safety Manual - Our safety manual is a comprehensive guide consisting of best practices and company procedures detailing how to complete work safely. Every employee participates in training to ensure that the corporate safety program and procedures are understood.
