Milwaukee, WI — Having recently won the AGC Build Wisconsin Award, The Daily Reporter Newsmaker of the Year Award, and the Masonry Excellence Award, the Wausau-based leading general contractor, Scherrer Construction, is undertaking a massive safety enhancement initiative for all its employees.
Scherrer Construction is passionate about creating a safe working environment and believes that only constructive dialogue between the company and employees will result in a positive outcome for the workplace. In order to ensure our company is a model employer and is abiding by OSHA policies, Scherrer Construction’s management team attends regular safety, training classes. As a result, the management team passes on vital safety training materials to the workers on the site.
“Scherrer Construction is a model employer and is known in the industry for its quality work and safe work environment,” says HR Director of Scherrer Construction. The team goes to great lengths to ensure that every new employee is trained for the standard safety procedures. Each employee is made aware of the proper way to use tools and equipment, and the employer further explains the proper safety procedures in the work environment.
The employees are not only trained on a daily basis but are also given weekly safety training materials to review. The extra safety training the employees receive helps ensure Scherrer Construction is a safer workplace. In order to help keep the employees up-to-date on the latest safety measures, the safety manual is updated every few months.
The Scherrer Construction safety director boasting 10+ years of experience in the industry has tirelessly worked to develop an effective safety program that is widely used throughout the company. Scherrer Construction believes that following safety training methods reduce the overall liability of the company and demonstrates a strong commitment to safety for all of its employees, clients, and stakeholders.
Training and certification, site-specific safety programs, safety audits, and weekly safety meetings at each construction site. Training programs include high-level OSHA training and certification; this includes 10 to 30-hour certifications.
Site-specific safety programs are developed during the pre-construction phase. The plan is distributed to all project documents, and all Scherrer Construction contractors are contractually bound to the new safety procedure. Safety audits are conducted weekly. Weekly checks ensure the responsibility of each team on site and the compliance of each process.
Finally, weekly safety meetings are mandatory for all workers on the site. The Wisconsin general contractor has an initial safety orientation that informs all employees of the risks identified for each project. If a supervisor witnesses an incongruity or misuse, he or she can bring it up in a “tool discussion” to let the public know what is expected of him or her and continue to work safely.
Scherrer Construction goes even further by creating a safe environment for children in every community. Their philosophy focuses on all educational efforts for students and provides them with a safe place to learn. This idea also includes the school staff and others who will be present in the school.
Scherrer Construction organizes age-specific discussions about school construction projects and overall construction safety. The company also plans mini field checks that promote the safety of all students.
Scherrer Construction has implemented the “Safety First” program for all schools. This program specifically invests in extra attention to safety measures at each site. They require photo identification cards so that all employees are identified as part of the construction crew.
