Safety: A Business Deliverable
We accomplish these standards through aggressive leadership, a conviction to a safety-conscious job site environment, and the determination to achieve zero accidents.
Adherence to safe work does not change because of accelerated schedules, change orders, or difficult working conditions. Instead, it becomes an even more important factor. We strive to remove the potential for unsafe acts and unsafe conditions at all times.
Safety is not just a belief for Southern States Millwrights and our contractors or even part of the task list. It’s the overriding principle for accomplishing our work.
In fact, Southern States Millwrights regard safety as an equal deliverable with cost and scheduling.
Our goal is developing a safety partnership with owners to protect our greatest asset and the owner’s investment.
Our objective is to remove job site injuries, work stoppages and higher project costs due to illness or accidents, worker disabilities and workers’ compensation claims, and death.
Is Our Training
Southern States Millwrights are trained to work and support an injury- and accident-free job site through attentiveness and continuous improvement in safety measures. Safety training starts on the first day of apprenticeship—and we reinforce safety throughout the millwright’s career.
SSMRC Millwrights acquire the skills, knowledge and preparation to be safe workers by focusing on:
Our employers’ primary goal is to complete a project with no incidents or injuries. An SSMRC contractor delivers safety practices at a jobsite by:
Safety and productivity is not an “either or” proposition. Performing work safely is in the DNA of SSMRC Millwrights. Safety-conscious contractors know that safety issues are minimized without hindering productivity when our Millwrights are on the job.
It’s a win-win, with stakes that reach far beyond the fiscal benefits for both labor and management.
