At D.H. Griffin of Texas, Inc., our safety program is one of strength, which meets or exceeds OSHA, EPA and other Federal, State and Local requirements, and has proven to be one of the best in our industry. Our forces have worked over 5,500 workdays without a lost time injury and our EMR is .81. Hazards and liability are inherent in our industry, that is why each project that we perform has a safety program tailored to our clients needs. Safety and environmental procedures are built in from the bidding and planning stages for each individual project, each step of a project is evaluated and safety and environmental procedures are developed prior to the start of work.
Once a project has been awarded, safety begins with the instructions we give our staff before the start of work and continues through to the completion with hands on training and instructions. Before the start of a project it is carefully inspected in order to recognize any potential safety and environmental hazard. Procedures are planned in order to eliminate the risk of personal injury, damage to the environment and property.
