Safety & Risk Management
Safety at Saunders is a way of life, and to support the ever-changing dynamics presented in the workplace we have our Safety Department, which is staffed with full-time employees dedicated solely to safety. The primary responsibility of this department is to ensure employees are fully implementing and utilizing the safety management systems and processes throughout every phase of construction on all our projects.
Saunders has received numerous industry Safety Awards and is a Blue Level participant of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) & OSHA’s Construction Health and Safety Excellence Program (CHASE). The CHASE program recognizes Saunders’ commitment to safety on all projects and acknowledges that our safety record and written policies are at least 10% better than industry standards.
I Work Safe, It’s My Choice: Safety Recognition Program
The safety and well-being of all persons associated with a Saunders project is paramount. Saunders is committed to implementing and fostering an injury-free and safe workplace. Safety is a mindset where no injury is acceptable and working safely is not optional. Safety is personal to each of us and it is our duty to manage and maintain personal accountability.
I Work Safe, It’s My Choice is a safety program that recognizes and reinforces the safe behavior of our employees. Its primary intent is to communicate Saunders’ commitment to safety and its the main message and idea that promotes personal accountability. This brand isn’t about Saunders, it is about our collective commitment to keeping each other safe and creating an injury free environment. Why do you choose to be safe? What is your story?
"I've been involved with the construction administration of over thirty large scale projects, (including) amphitheatres, and obviously involved working with several contractors. Without a doubt, Saunders Construction Inc. has surpassed those past contractors in terms of their professionalism and conscientious method of constructing the work."
