Safety

There is no higher priority at SASCO than the safety of our people. We are proud of our top flight safety record and are committed to an incident free work environment. We have devoted the resources and developed the strategy to assure that commitment is a reality. Our dedication can be seen in our industry leading record of 200 plus projects performed in 2015 in North America and Asia without a Loss Time Recordable Incident.

Leadership

Safety starts with leadership. The responsibility of our field and office management team is to continually improve upon our premier construction safety record. Our pledge to every employee is to send them home in the same condition in which they arrived.

Our Safety Director regularly undertakes site visits to review the implementation of our standards and ensure corrective and preventative actions are in place.

SASCO has a dedicated Safety Department comprised of seasoned professionals. The department oversees the implementation and effectiveness of our overall safety program including education and training programs, code research, safety file maintenance, workers’ compensation management, and liaison with all trades’ safety professionals, insurance professionals, and regulatory agency personnel.
