In all of our locations, our employees believe in playing it safe
S.M. Lawrence has a company-wide focus on accident prevention, and not just OSHA compliance. We believe safety has less to do with rulebooks and more to do with what’s in the minds of our workers and the hearts of our management.
Our philosophy is this: Creating an accident free environment through leadership, communication, and motivation. By fostering an attitude of safety consciousness, our key leaders develop a “spirit” of accident prevention and reduce accidents as a result.
Certainly, we do not ignore government rules, though. Our staff all receive comprehensive training and certification in OSHA 10 Hour Safety. Managers and supervisors receive OSHA 30 hour training. In addition, we provide our employees with all of the safety equipment and tools they need to perform their work.
We strictly adhere to all Federal, State and Local regulations. What’s more, our goal is to eliminate unsafe acts and conditions that might cause personal injury. We believe attitude means everything, and our expectation of zero accidents and injuries is absolutely achievable. Our results back this up, as we consistently have a safety performance far better than industry average.
We benchmark, and track safety in many areas including workplace safety, automobile accidents, and general liability. Our “Safety Index” provides continuous feedback, and drives improvement in processes and results.
Managers at all levels of our organization have a profound effect on the safety culture and continually create motivation for positive change to avoid complacency. Staying committed and involved keeps our workplace and work sites injury free, and allows some of our subsidiaries to have worked literally millions of hours without a lost-time injury.
