We created a safety program that doesn't just meet industry standards, it exceeds them. One look at our low reportable injury and accident rate shows how seriously we respect safety rules and how hard we work to mitigate risks on our job sites.
Our commitment to safety is led from the top down. Our safety committee consists of Safety Promoter John Kline, President and CEO Scott A. Gregor, COO John Hunter, Vice President Andy Gregor and Vice President Brett Norton. They meet regularly to ensure we comply with all safety regulations on every job we do. This team also reviews results of safety audits, mishaps or "close calls" to make sure we take necessary measures to prevent them from happening again.
On the job site, our Superintendents take the safety of each project into their hands. They do daily job site walk-throughs to verify that all hazards are controlled and that even our Vendor Partners are held accountable for potential safety hazards or risks.
We also require that all Project Managers, Superintendents and Team Leaders comply with Safety Leadership training, OSHA 30-hour training, and complete the National Safety Council's Defensive Driving Course. Superintendents and Field Team Leads must also complete equipment training, be certified to operate all equipment in use on a project, and obtain a First Aid/CPR/AED Training Certificate.
Thanks to our diligent and purposeful safety habits, Buffalo Construction, Inc. is a proud member of the National Safety Council.
