Corporate Health & Safety
Safety is a core value of our company. The emphasis on safety is simple to understand: Our employees, customers, the public and our business associates and partners, are the most important assets this company has. We have a responsibility to protect each and every one of them every day, whether that means by providing them with the tools, training, guidance, and methods they need to work safely and productively, or whether it means while they are visiting a jobsite or simply live and work in the area.
It is the policy of C.J. Hughes to strive for the highest safety standards achievable on all our projects. Safety does not occur by chance. It is the result of careful attention to all company and customer operations by those involved, both directly and indirectly. Our vision and values statement calls on every employee working for the company to strive for incident-free operations by managing risks to prevent injuries and accidents. Safety and health responsibilities come first and instilling the mindset to recognize all accidents and injuries are preventable is a priority.
“NO PROJECT OR JOB IS SO IMPORTANT AND NO TASK SO URGENT THAT WE CANNOT TAKE THE TIME TO PERFORM OUR WORK SAFELY.”
Some of the elements and features of our comprehensive Safety & Health Programs are:
- Employee Involvement & Recognition
- Hazard Recognition
- Incident Reporting
- Drug & Alcohol Testing
- Operator Qualification
Safety, innovation, experience, and teamwork support the foundation that allows us to keep pace with the advancing complexity and shortened lead times of today’s projects.
Project Safety Expectations
Our commitment to safety is only exceeded by our expectations for it. While we continue, day in and day out, to train our employees and engage in safe workplace activities, it is our expectation that each and every CJ Hughes associate and our trusted partners will follow those same safety-based protocols while on the job.
This expectation results in reduced workplace accidents and injuries. This is a positive step forward towards our goal of zero in that arena.
