Proactive safety planning during all phases of construction is essential in order to reduce the risk associated with construction and renovation activities, as well as eliminate hazards to construction workers, faculty, staff, students, and the public. This service includes the management and implementation of the Construction Safety Standard, pre-construction planning, evaluation of contractor safety performance, development of a project hazard analysis, detailed review of high-risk activities, and administration of a comprehensive substance abuse prevention program.
An effective construction safety program must have the endorsement of upper management. At PCS, safety is valued as highly as quality and productivity. The management of PCS realizes that performing a job safely is just as important as meeting a deadline and providing a quality product. In turn, a safe workplace leads to greater productivity and quality craftsmanship. An effective construction safety program must also have the involvement and commitment of all employees. All employees share the responsibilities of the safety team by following safe practices on and off the job and assisting their fellow employees in promoting safety and good health practices.
