Ducky Johnson has developed a safety culture that is an integral part of our business model. Ducky is committed to providing a safe working environment for our employees, subcontractors, and clients. The Company’s exemplary safety record is a testament to the fact that safeguarding the well-being of its workers and the public is our top priority. Ducky Johnson’s leadership is committed to supporting safety efforts with adequate resources.
Construction projects by their nature present an environment where people can be injured. However, accidents can be prevented, and people who constantly practice safety awareness will not be injured nor cause injury to their fellow workers. Our commitment is to make our projects and operations as safe as humanly possible.
An effective program requires site-specific planning, accountability, attitude and training. Each project is closely analyzed to identify and mitigate risks to the health and well-being of workers and the public. The development of project safety plans is particularly important in congested areas such as busy neighborhoods. Environmental awareness and sensitivity to the concerns of the communities in which it works are also important elements of the Company’s safety management.
Every person on the worksite shares equally the responsibility to maintain a safe working environment. Foremen and superintendents are directly accountable to management for the crew’s safety. All of Ducky Johnson’s employees are empowered to report and immediately correct any unsafe behavior that is observed. Mandatory daily and weekly safety meetings are held with all employees to discuss hazard analysis of current and future work on construction site. Daily safety inspections are also conducted by superintendents on each site and observed hazards are documented and abated immediately.
Subcontractors are contractually bound to abide by all of Ducky Johnson safety policies and OSHA regulations. Subcontractor’s OSHA citation history is also reviewed to insure that no repeat offenders are hired that would create unsafe conditions on our sites or to expose our company and clients to regulatory enforcement. A tiered level of disciplinary action is also available for use for anyone that does not comply with our policies and procedures.
