Casper Construction, Inc. is committed to safety above all else. To us, no project is successful unless it is built safely. We believe that through proper planning and training, employee engagement and empowerment, and constant vigilance, we can ensure that everyone leaves the job site in the same condition that they arrived.
We maintain a strong safety culture with our Core Values of:
Instilling and reinforcing safe behaviors
Sharing knowledge and best practices
Investing in learning and development
Detailed root cause analysis and pre-task planning
Safety does not end with the close of the workday, but extends into all aspects of our lives.
Casper offers company-wide new hire orientation programs, scheduled safety trainings, weekly “tool box” talks on jobs sites, and job site safety audits to help prevent incidents from occurring.
New Hire Orientation
Every worker attends safety orientation training before beginning their work. We deliver in-person training, covering injury reporting, AWAIR, Right to Know, drug and alcohol policies, and specialized safety training for job-specific tasks such as excavation, traffic control flagging, and confined space. All new hires are drug tested before starting work.
Casper schedules training sessions to ensure workers have the knowledge and trouble shooting skills necessary to be successful in completing jobs productively and safely. Annual training consists of Excavation Competent Person, MSHA refresher, First Aid and CPR, along with specialized training.
Weekly "Tool Box" Discussions
Each week, “Tool Box” safety talks are distributed to the Foreman of each crew. Specific topics are selected for discussion based on upcoming tasks, client requirements, near misses, and incidents. All workers will review this weekly safety topic and are encouraged to bring suggestions of additional topics, lessons learned, or experiences forward for other to learn from.
Job Site Safety Audits
When a job site safety audit is performed, we focus on current strengths and opportunities to improve. These safety audits are detailed and raise awareness of potential health and safety hazards. When an audit is completed, it is reviewed with Foreman, Supervisors, and Company Owners, to help make the necessary improvements to maintain or improve safety and compliance.
