To DDG, ensuring the safety of our employees, subcontractors, and the public is a top priority. We are proud to say that we maintain one of the finest safety records in the industry, and continually surpass local and national safety standards.
Commitment and Accountability at each level
Safety at DDG requires a constant personal commitment from each and every individual employee. This is at each step of the way, and at every level of the company.
We put equal emphasis on the team approach to safety, however, ensuring that all our employees in the field work together to help ensure fundamental safe practices and continued innovations in our safety program.
Whether discussing safety in terms of individual accountability or teamwork, we are guided by three fundamental principles:
- Preventing injury, occupational illness, and property damage by outlining the safety, health duties, and responsibilities of all individuals involved ;
- Establishing policies and procedures that ensure all employees are actively involved in safe work practices;
- Creating and implementing a plan for safety and health education, training, and monitoring that promotes the identification and elimination of hazards;
On a human scale
At DDG, we never forget that every project is built by a team of individuals, all of whom deserve to go home injury-free at the end of each day’s work. This means that not only our superintendents and project managers make safety planning a part of each day but also all employees participate as well.
