SAFETY & ENVIRONMENT
SETTING THE STANDARD FOR SAFETY
We firmly believe that every successful project starts with safe, sound, fundamental practices. That’s why our company observes the highest safety standards set forth by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and local regulatory requirements.
Our employees are trained to know safety comes first and no short cuts will be tolerated. We implement incentive programs to encourage safe work practices, while we strictly enforce our disciplinary policy for anyone not following our safety program.
In addition to our field supervisory personnel on all job sites, we also have additional dedicated field safety inspectors who visit the sites regularly. These field safety inspectors have the authority to correct any unsafe practices, including stopping production until corrections have been completed. In fact, on many issues we are even more stringent than OSHA requires. This ensures a quality work environment and is just one more example of our strong attention to detail in every facet of every job.
Additionally, all new employees are required to attend and pass safety orientation programs to address any conditions they may encounter on the job. Topics address everything from working with hazardous materials and practicing the safest standards, to what to do in the event of an emergency and who to contact.
DEDICATION TO OUR EMPLOYEES
Most of Atsalis Brothers management has spent many years working in the field. This firsthand knowledge provides us with an understanding that our employees are our greatest asset. We know that without their dedication and team effort we would not be able to enjoy the success we have had for the past five decades.
Whether working on the freeways, over waterways, or in production plants, our employees have a very demanding job. For this reason we place great attention on safety, because after a hard day’s work we want our employees to go back to their families safely.
At Atsalis Brothers we have implemented training programs for both technical skills and safety in the classroom and on the job. We provide our workers with only the most current and reliable equipment to ensure a safe work environment and to make their jobs less stressful.
Thorough inspections are routinely scheduled and maintenance is consistently performed on all equipment for the safety of our workers. It is no wonder that in an industry known for having high employee turnover, many of our employees have been with us for more than 30 years.
DEDICATION TO THE ENVIRONMENT
In addition to providing a safe and healthy work environment for our employees. Atsalis Brothers cares about what’s right for the environment. That is why we use and design equipment that minimizes emissions and reduces waste.
We work with specialized blast trailer rigs that meet or exceed required regulations in capturing the spent abrasive, recyclable steel grit, and containments. This helps keep pollutants and airborne contaminants to a minimum. Plus, we recycle as much construction debris and packaging as we can to help make each job an environmentally sound one.
