Every company has one thing in common: a safety-first culture. This passion translates to teamwork on safety issues, satisfied employees and a thriving business. At Guarantee Restoration, we constantly train our Project Managers, Carpenters, Supervisors and Technicians the importance of safety and how to practice it on the job.

Practicing Behavior-Based Safety

At Guarantee Restoration, safety is paramount. Before each job, our project manager and regional manager walk the site with the consultant and owner. All duties are discussed as well as any potential hazards. Before each job begins, the project manager has a team meeting with all technicians, carpenters and specialist to ensure everyone understands the project objectives and potential hazards. Each team member is given a Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) bag that helps them stay safe in the hazardous environments we work in.

Ways to Create a Safety Culture

  1. Involve your employees in safety planning. Empower your team to practice safety, but educating them on it. The more they understand, the more they will take ownership of the safety plan and take ACTION!

  2. Provide clear work instructions. Make sure all safety instructions are clear and understood. Review and confirm that your team understand what they are being asked to do.

  3. Focus on the “most likely” issues. Of course you should plan for major safety concerns, but eliminate the small safety violations that contribute the most frequent injuries.

  4. Maintain a clean work area. Remove the clutter and potential safety issues. This will also help your team be more productive.

  5. Encourage your team to voice safety concerns. When your team brings safety deficiencies and new ideas to management’s attention, they contribute to the safety culture of the company.

  6. Maintain all machinery in good working order. If you use machinery at your office, it’s the employers responsibility to ensure that it is in good working order and that a routine maintenance program is in place.

  7. Remove unnecessary hazards. Routine inspections of your workplace should be done to identify any unnecessary hazards.

  8. Revisit your safety guidelines every year. Start off each year with an inspection and a thorough review of your safety program.
