Commitment to Safety
Safety is a top priority at Konell Construction & Demolition. Our policy is to maintain a safe work environment at all times during construction for all project crews, subcontractors, and the public. The nature of construction inherently involves many physical hazards. However, we believe that accidents and risks can be avoided if our employees are educated in safe work practices.
We are proud to have been awarded the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. STEP Award consecutively since 2011.
Konell Construction & Demolition Co. has a dedicated commitment to safety where we pride ourselves on completing projects safely and without incident. Overseeing our comprehensive training and inspection programs is our full-time Safety Manager, who also ensures that our team has the most current safety training and knowledge. We achieve this by having monthly Safety Commitment Team meetings, weekly job site meetings, weekly foremen’s meetings, and daily Pre-Task planning along with active collaboration and effective communication within the team.
Our detailed Safety Manual, which meets or exceeds OSHA, WISHA, and DEQ standards, is used to refresh and reinforce the trainings and classes provided to the entire Konell team. All employees are included in company-wide trainings which include CPR, First Aid, and AED. In addition, each employee receives training and certifications specific to their position.
All field crews receive task-appropriate training related to the project scope they will be working with. They also received OSHA 10 certification, lead, asbestos, silica, cadmium, confined space, and fall protection courses. Supervisors and foreman receive additional training and are OSHA 30 certified.
Our goal is to ensure that each employee is provided a safe work environment. In order to provide the best service for our customers, we must prevent injuries and property damage. We use pre-employment and random drug screening to ensure that our zero-tolerance policy offers the highest benefit for workplace safety.
