Safety is not just a buzz word at Grade Tech; it is a core value that is woven into the fabric of our company culture. We live and breathe it each and every day. We are committed to providing a safe, accident-free and injury-free work site above all else. We recognize our employees as our greatest assets and do everything possible to ensure their safety on the job.
Grade Tech Safety
Our safety program emphasizes training and communication as well as top-grade equipment. We continuously evaluate the program components to stay current with best practices and ensure that we are taking the right steps to protect our team, our customers and the surrounding community. Components of our program include:
We start each day at the jobsite with a daily tailboard or safety meeting to discuss potential job hazards or issues prior to starting work. We also meet monthly with the entire team to review policies and procedures and discuss potential risks.
We invest in the most advanced equipment for powerline and substation work and provide our team members with all of the protective equipment they need to keep them safe on the job.
At GradeTech, we believe that the best defense against accidents is proper training. Therefore, we invest in Substation Entry Training and OSHA 10-hour training courses for all team members and provide additional training as needed.
Communication and Accountability
We have an open-door communication policy and practice spotting and awareness each and every day; encouraging our team to watch for safety hazards/conditions and speak up when they see something that is unsafe. We also encourage information sharing amongst team members. By sharing experiences, we can all learn from one another and work more safely.
