Safety Focus – Philosophy
At Kokosing, we truly believe one accident is too many. That is why our company is built on a solid safety foundation that would match the foundation of any structure we build. Our focus has been helping our employees utilize solid safety processes that we have established as a company – processes that allow our employees to work safely. Training, planning, proper selection and use of PPE and equipment; learning to make the correct safety decisions; and having the right and responsibility to stop any unsafe operations are just a few of the safety processes our employees use every day. They understand that one accident is too many at Kokosing.
Through extensive hands-on training, we equip our employees with the skills needed to safely construct all of our projects. Take a look at some recent photos and a full list of our safety courses here.
In 2006, we received the Willis/Construction Safety Excellence Award – which is the nation’s Grand Award from the Associated General Contractors of America. Receiving this award was a great honor for our employees.
Kokosing’s Safety Program is successful because of our people, who are focused on improving every day. They continually are working together toward the common goal of eliminating all incidents.
From our management conceptualizing our safety processes, to our solid safety staff providing the needed training and technical support on projects, to our people planning and performing the work safely – Kokosing is solidly built on a safety culture.
We’re focused on achieving ZERO incidents.
