Worker safety and health is a top priority for mechanical contractors.

  • The components of a corporate safety policy
  • The importance of a corporate commitment to safety that has the buy-in of leaders and workers alike
  • Worker training requirements
  • The importance of a disciplinary action policy
  • The components of a safety incentive program
  • The importance of substance abuse and drug testing
  • The components of a work site hazard analysis
  • Accident/incident investigation’s role in preventing future accidents/incidents
  • The importance of modified duty policies to getting workers on the job and saving the company money
