SAFETY MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

In order to provide a safe and healthy working environment for all employees, subcontractors, customers and visitors, Clearwater has established a workplace Safety Management Program. We understand that corporate success depends on the alertness and the personal commitment of all employees to safety.  Clearwater only employs Craft-Specific Union Workers which ensures that every Clearwater employee has a significant level of training and experience in their specific trade.

 

In addition to the union craft specific training, Clearwater provides training and information to employees about workplace safety and health issues through the use of job site postings, supervisor-employee meetings, tool-box talks, memos, and site visits.

A labor-management safety committee, composed of representatives throughout the organization has been established to help monitor Clearwater’s Safety Management Program and to help facilitate effective communication between employees and management about workplace safety and health issues.

 

Employees are always encouraged to interact with the project management team members and the safety personnel to share ideas and concerns with the safety committee.  Jobsite audits are performed on a frequent basis by the Safety Director and two separate Loss Control Specialists from Clearwater’s Insurance Company.  The Safety Director and Loss Control Specialists communicate their audit results during monthly safety committee meetings.  
 

Employees and supervisors receive annual and periodic safety training.

The annual training covers the following list of topics and more:
