Artisan Contracting has an uncompromising commitment to safety. Our company's most valuable asset is our people. Nothing is more important than ensuring our employees return home safely to their families every day.
Artisan is committed to provide a safe and healthy workplace for our employees. We employ a full-time safety department that administers training and inspection programs covering all safety aspects of job performance in the field.
Employees participate in new-hire orientation and annual safety training. Superintendents and project foremen are provided training in OSHA 30, First Aid/CPR/AED and various competent person certifications. The carpenters, millwrights, laborers and operating engineers all receive safety training through their union apprenticeship/affiliated programs, including OSHA, MSHA, Fall Protection, Forklift, First Aid, Scaffold Erection, Rigging and various other safety skills.
Supervisors conduct weekly toolbox talk meetings in the field to promote safety awareness and discuss safety hazards specific to current work environments. They constantly observe jobsite performance and immediately correct unsafe practices. To further enhance safety awareness, the safety manager and safety coordinators visit jobsites frequently to monitor safety and consult with supervisors and employees.
