Safety First, Last, and Always
Management Accountability & Involvement
TPC knows that all successful safety programs start with a strong and visible commitment from top management. Here at TPC, we actively support the safety culture. This is done through training all management that being safe on jobs is our number one priority. It is understood by all employees at TPC that the safety culture always produces a better result.
As stated above, at TPC safety is a culture, not a behavior. We strive to turn safety behavior into a culture our employees take home each day. All crew leaders are OSHA 30 certified and all crew leaders up to top management of the company have ongoing safety training.
Our Safety Team works hard to ensure that safety is a "state of mind" in all situations, allowing crews to look at jobs, engineer out any hazards first, and then implement proper safeguards and personal protective equipment. Management is required to perform numerous crew visits throughout the year because we know that understanding what is happening in the field is critical to further enhance safety protocols.
TPC has a Management Safety Committee that oversees all of our safety programs. This Committee has over 200 years combined experience in the construction industry.
TPC Safety Policies & Procedures Manual
Our Safety Policy and Procedures Manual is a company-specific reference of all policies, procedures, and disciplinary guidelines developed by the Management Safety Committee. Policies outlined in the Manual meet or exceed OSHA requirements and are reviewed and adapted to industry changes.
Job Safety Analysis (JSA)
Our safety program is further enhanced by foremen collecting and reporting daily, real-time job safety information using iPads and iAuditor. Information is received by managers and safety personnel that is discussed before the day's work begins. Additionally, crew visits are arranged to ensure safety standards are being enforced, with tasks and hazards closely monitored.
