Safety

riverbend_6DV Brown & Associates believes that no job or task is more important than the health and safety of the worker. DVB employees are our most important assets and their safety at the worksite is our greatest responsibility.  The prevention of occupationally induced injuries and illnesses is of such consequence that it will be given precedence over productivity whenever necessary.

Our safety program embodies the proper attitude towards injury and illness prevention on the part of corporate management, supervisors, and employees.  It also requires cooperation in all safety and health matters, not only between corporate management, supervisor and employees, but also between each employee and their fellow workers.

Our concern for safety and health of all human beings is daily, even hourly.  We expect every person who conducts the affairs of our company, no matter in what capacity they function, to accept this concern and its responsibility.  Employees are expected to use the safety equipment provided.  Rules of conduct and rules of safety and health must be observed.

The key elements of our safety program are as follows:

  • Weekly Safety “Tool Box” Talks for all DV Brown and subcontractor field personnel
  • Weekly Safety Inspections – documented by the job-site foreman and Project Manager using a multiple point checklists
  • Pre-construction meetings – held with key subcontractors, project manager and job-site foreman to review and plan upcoming project scopes, and operations to ensure project safety
  • Health and safety training and education for all DV Brown foreman including OSHA 10 and 30 Hour Construction training, fall protection, and excavation/trenching safety
  • Job site inspections performed by a contracted safety firm. This firm provides support to both the field and office to ensure all safety related matters are handled properly and efficiently.

Commitment to quality, value and integrity is the cornerstone of our services, and it is what differentiates DVB from other mechanical contractors.
