Safety is our number one concern on every project we are involved in.
Commitment to Safety
At Elmira Structures, we take precautions to reach our goal of zero injuries. This begins before the project is initialized. The Project Manager will review the drawings and site to determine what areas could possibly be dangerous. Once the job is underway we perform “housekeeping” on a daily basis to prevent accidents. During lunch, the foreman will go over Toolbox Safety topics with the crew that pertains to tasks that we are currently working on. The upper management will also make surprise visits to the jobsite to confirm everyone is being safe. We team up with Lovell Safety Management Co. who inspects the job site and makes recommendations towards potential safety hazards.
