Safety Program

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.  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. Our safety program is predictive and proactive and is centered around SIF and pSIF which are Serious Incident and Fatality or Potential to cause Serious Incident or Fatality. 

Once a project has been awarded, safety begins with the instructions we give our staff before the start of work through a site specific safety plan and a job hazard analysis. Before the start of work each day, and before each task, our team completes Pre-Task Plans(PTPs) and our safety team regularly conducts site audits to improve the safety of our team. This safety-focused approach continues through to the completion with hands on training and instructions at various levels.  Procedures are planned in order to eliminate the risk of personal injury, damage to the environment and property.
