Safety

At Ajax Building Corporation, we are committed to providing the safest possible work site for our employees, employees of subcontractors, owners, and the general public. It is our belief that all accidents are preventable, and our goal is to send every employee home whole and healthy everyday. To achieve this goal we have developed a safety program that we believe leads the industry; some of the main points of this program are listed below.

These are just a few of the ways we work to insure the safety of all personnel on our jobs. If you have any questions concerning our safety program please contact Marc Reeves, Safety Director.

Yes, we do invite OSHA to visit our projects! Knowledge of workplace hazards and ways to eliminate them can only improve the overall operations of a company. Ajax Building Corporation works in partnership with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Consultation Services at the University of South Florida as well as a full-time safety team to help identify and correct hazardous conditions on our projects. For more information on the OSHA consultation service please visit www.safetyflorida.USF.edu or www.OSHA.gov.

Ajax Building Corporation Safety Programs

  • Project Hazard Analysis

    Prior to work beginning, the safety director reviews the contract documents with the project team to identify potentially hazardous task, conditions, materials, or special training required to perform the task.
  • Pre-task Planning

    This is specific task analysis by the superintendent and foreman. They discuss, with the crew, the hazards anticipated with the task, equipment needed to perform the job safely, and personal protective equipment to be worn.
  • Safety Orientation and Training

    All new employees are required to go through our safety orientation program prior to starting work, and all employees are given more specific training for complex or technical jobs.
  • Drug and Alcohol Abuse Program

    Our drug and alcohol abuse program includes pre-employment screening, random testing, and post accident testing. We also give extra consideration to subcontractors who have a similar policy in effect.
  • Regional Safety Committees

    We have safety committees in each region of Ajax that work to improve local workplace safety programs. They also work together to implement improvements to our company wide safety policies.
