The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has reported that 21.4% of worker fatalities in 2015 were in construction. Because of the risks of construction work, safety is a top priority at Kenseal: we strive for the safety of our workers, customers, and their families.
Our company value on safety is as follows:
“Safety First, Safety Always. Nothing is more important than ensuring that every AH Harris associate goes home safely at the end of the day. Safety is everyone’s job and we all have an obligation to help spot and correct unsafe actions. Even if we are tired or rushed, take the time to be safe. Each of us has a duty to look out for the well-being of our fellow associates and customers.”
Because we care about the safety of our employees, we send helpful safety tips weekly to remind them how to be safe on the job and at home. Here are some that will also help you be safe at your work and at home.
- Be aware and constantly take surveys of your surroundings.
- When driving, turn around to make sure it is safe to reverse or merge. Do not just trust your mirrors or back-up camera.
- Never overextend yourself when picking up or moving objects.
In addition to our safety tips, we also protect the well-being of our employees through our wellness program, in which we set goals as a company for exercise and eating right.
Everyone deserves to go home safe and healthy. We look out for our employees and our customers by valuing the safety and health of all.
