Safety

Commitment to the safety of our employees and the teams with whom we work on each project has always been the highest priority for Manganaro Northeast. Since 1958, we have developed focused, award-winning safety plans and company-wide systems to ensure that we are proactive in our safety measures managed by our dedicated Safety Director. Our safety plan starts at the top. Our dedicated Safety Director answers only to the Senior Management of the company, who are aware of the day-to-day operations and involved with all required safety practices and how they are implemented. Manganaro’s “Safety Always” approach and management mandates are invaluable to the success of our safety program, and have been recognized consistently by our clients in providing them confidence in our team’s abilities to perform effectively and safely on each and every project. The Manganaro Safety Plan includes:

• Mandatory comprehensive safety orientations & trainings

• Company Safety Handbook o General jobsite guidelines

o Fall protection requirements

o Hazard communication program

o Consistent updates based upon the outcomes of our client feedback sessions, meetings, and roundtables

• Thorough Q & A sessions with all team members to ensure understanding and application of the Manganaro Safety Plan

• Regular, interactive management safety meetings including project managers, engineers, superintendents, foreman, and sub-foreman

• Roundtables covering specific training items which are prioritized through the input from our clients

• Mandatory OSHA training items which are prioritized through the input from our clients

• Manganaro Northeast’s comprehensive "Safety & Training Manual" is given to all supervisors managing projects to equip them with the necessary tools to assess concerns quickly and efficiently, allowing them to address the hazard as quickly as possible

• Manganaro Northeast’s Safety Manager walks every project with the site foreperson for interaction and continued training

• Onsite training sessions conducted by the safety manager address scaffold erectors, equipment operators, and other specialty trained personnel to expand and further jobsite safety

• Routine communication is encouraged between project supervisors and the Safety Director for tasks that do not fit the general or normal site hazards. All scenarios are explored and discussed for optimum Safety and Production benefits

• Manganaro supervisors also attend outside training programs that look at the “Big Picture” concepts of safety vs. production and how they are intertwined

• Weekly Toolbox Safety Talks and Daily Huddles enable Manganaro forepersons to meet with all team members prior to the start of the day at each of our worksites to discuss specific hazards in their areas and any safety concerns they may have for themselves or co-workers

• In a further effort to ensure that we are diligent in adhering to our plans outlined above we have brought in an independent third party safety consultant, AON Risk Management to verify the effectiveness of the actions above and to advise us of areas for further improvement. We feel this outside influence is critical to include as they are entirely independent of the financial goals of our construction operations.
