Stenco Construction Takes Safety Seriously.
Every person in our company is held responsible for thinking safety first. In addition to daily safety meetings, we have documented procedures in place for every job site.
Our Experience Modification Rate (EMR) of 0.74 is among the best in the industry.
EMR is used as a measure of safety performance by the insurance industry and many of Stenco's clients. The lower our EMR, the lower our worker compensation insurance premiums will be, which impacts our ability to compete in the market place.
Our Safety Awards:
Stenco is pleased to have received the AGC of Michigan Gold Safety Award for Specialty Contractor Division I in both 2014 and 2015.
AGC awards are broken into two categories, General Contractor and Specialty Contractor, which are divided into divisions based on total work hours. The Gold Award signifies an injury rate of zero.
Additionally, we are excited to have received the 2013 Award for Excellent Safety Performance from our valued client Toyota.
Our Safety Standards:
Safety Orientation: All new employees are required to complete a safety orientation. The orientation will consist of company rules, regulations, and any special requirements for their job. They will be provided with all basic personal protective equipment. Employees reporting to a specific project will receive project specific orientation.
Stenco is dedicated to providing a Drug Free and Alcohol Free workplace. Employees will be drug tested under a 10 panel program at the initial hire date, annually, and random thereafter.
Toolbox Safety Meetings
Foremen or supervisors conduct 10 minute safety meetings every Monday. These meetings establish two way communication between management and field personnel. The topics are either job specific or taken from “Weekly Safety Meeting” outlines, which are distributed to all foremen. After the meeting, each person must sign a safety form to be turned in with the week’s time sheets.
Job Hazard Analysis (JHA)
JHA are created for all high hazard projects prior to work starting. The JHA addresses the hazards of all work operations on the project. Additionally, subcontractors must complete a JHA for their scope of work and submit them to the Stenco project team for approval.
Pre-Task Safety Analysis (PTSA)
The project supervisor will share the PTSA with the crew at the beginning of the shift. They are completed each day prior to the shift starting and address the hazards of all the tasks that are to be completed during that shift.
