SAFETY

"It is very evident that Foushée's commitment to safety is from the top down. This, as you know, is critical to the success of any safety program. Employees must see the company's commitment translated into action."
- Lauren Gubbe, AGC Group Retro Program

Where SAFETY is Not Only a Priority, It’s a Core Value

Ensuring that everyone goes home safely every day is something we take very seriously. That focus - a product of being a family-oriented business, and of having proven procedures and training in place - has paid off in our better-than-the-industry-average safety rate, and that translates into cost savings for our clients.

To ensure safety compliance and accident prevention, Foushée provides:

  • A full-time Safety/Risk Manager.
  • Accountability - Supervisors are accountable for accident prevention at the job sites.
  • Disciplinary/Incentive Measures - Any employee, supervisor and subcontractor who fails to comply receives safety-violation penalties up to and including termination. Those who excel in safety compliance are rewarded for their performance.
  • Training - We schedule new-employee training, regularly continuing safety seminars, supervisor safety training, and we provide consulting to our subcontractors.
  • Inspection - A comprehensive, project specific job site safety inspection program.

The Experience Modifier Rating judges the industry average on safety statistics. Foushée is proud to have earned an EMR that is significantly lower than the industry average.
