Corporate Health & Safety
Safety is a core value of our company. The emphasis on safety is simple to understand: Our people, the public and the people who we work with and for, are the most important assets of our company. We have a responsibility that we protect them by providing them with the tools, training, guidance, and methods to work safely and productively every day.
It is the policy of CJH to strive for the highest safety standards on 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. The Company will provide and maintain work equipment and systems of work that are safe, ensure that articles and substances are used, handled, stored and transported safely and without risk to health and provide and maintain a working environment that is safe. Our vision and values statement calls on every employee working for the company to strive for incident-free operations and to manage risks to prevent injuries, illnesses and accidents. Safety and health responsibilities come first, last and always. Recognize that all accidents and injuries are preventable.
“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
Innovation, experience, safety 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.
