Safety

Safety first, last and always.

Everyone talks about safety; we work hard to do something about it.

With things like well-established environmental, health and safety protocols on every job site. Mandatory safety training seminars that reinforce and refresh important lessons. And, a standing safety committee that brings together employees at every level of the company. Because at Glover, we don’t just take safety seriously; we take it actively.

Safety by the Numbers

We work hard to drive our Experience Modification Ratio (EMR) down every year. So far, so good.

Safety on every job. Every day.

It is the policy of Glover Construction/Contracting Co., Inc., to ensure a workplace that is safe, secure, healthy, and environmentally conscience for its employees, subcontractors, suppliers, site and office visitors, as well as project owner representatives. Glover prides itself on a Safety Culture that is predicated on three key focus areas:

  1. An effective accident and illness prevention program that helps eliminate workplace hazards.
  2. Ongoing company-wide safety training; mandatory for all employees.
  3. “See Something, Say Something”, and the ability of all employees, subcontractors, suppliers, site and officer visitors, as well as project owner representatives to exercise stop-work authority.

All employees and subcontractors are required to adhere to Glover’s Emergency Action and Hazard Communication plan—as well as the safety program required by the owner of each project.

All Glover job sites require ANSI Z89.1-approved hard hats, Class 2 high-visibility safety vests, ANSI Z87.1-safety glasses, and steel toe or composite safety shoes. If task-specific Person Protective Equipment is required, we’ve got that too.

Before every shift, Glover superintendents perform site safety inspections and conduct task-specific safety briefings. Because once is not enough.
