The ownership and management of Murrieta Development recognize the necessity and responsibility of implementing a successful Safety Program. It is our belief that accidents causing injury or illness to employees, and/or damage to property and equipment, result in costly waste and needless loss. Therefore, in order to ensure the success of the Safety Program, we have developed "task specific" safety and health procedures.
Our safety and health procedures are developed with the intention of being "field friendly", while still meeting, and oftentimes, exceeding minimum governing standards. The procedures are written with the intention of providing a safe and healthy work environment for al employees, encompassing various aspects of construction safety including:
- CONFINED SPACE
- HAZARD COMMUNICATION
- HEAT & ILLNESS PREVENTION
- PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
It is the company Safety Officer who reviews and revises the procedures annually in order to ensure that the procedures are relevant to an ever changing industry and work environment.
Training is a key element to the success of our Safety Program. Supervisors and employees must be provided with safety knowledge that protects everyone on our jobsites. Our Safety Training Program utilizes various aspects and techniques that adapt to the required field training. In order to be effective, training must include all aspects of learning which includes the visual, audio and physical. Our Safety Trainers receive their safety training from OSHA courses and related sources, and incorporate such instruction into the classes that they teach. Training class topics include:
- COMPANY-WIDE OSHA 10-HOUR
- COMPANY-WIDE USACE EM-385
- HEAVY EQUIPMENT OPERATOR SAFETY
- COMFINED SPACE COMPETENT PERSON
- FIRST AID / CPR / DEFIB
Bi-Lingual weekly safety meetings are provided to every crew member on topics relevant to their job. The size, location, accessibility and features of our safety meetings are extremely important in order for the trainer to properly convey the training messages to the employee.
All of our jobsites are inspected by a third-party safety consultant in order to ensure the proper implementation of CAL/OSHA and other company safety requirements. All issues are addressed at weekly management progress meetings to address any additional jobsite specific safety concerns. As part of our ongoing quality control, we frequently invite third-party safety professionals to evaluate our safety program documentation, implementation and results.
