A successful safety program will add to a company's professionalism. One cannot exist without the other. Safety is a must on every project and this is why top management sets the tone for employee's to follow. The goal is to ensure that plumbers, trades people, and even customers are not injured while on the job. DeGarmo Plumbing conducts employee safety training regularly, performs weekly toolbox talks, and conducts field audits to ensure we're part of the solution for a safer job site. DeGarmo Plumbing utilizes insurance professionals, a contracted and certified safety consultant, and experience to ensure employees have all the resources they need for better decision making.
Accidents cost money and DeGarmo's preventative approach towards safety makes each job better for everyone involved. DeGarmo Plumbing's safety record has translated to lower costs overall that will benefit the customer with competitive bids. Because of a safety record that bests the industry average, less money is spent on lost time accidents, time away from job sites, lower worker's compensation costs, and keeping people focused on the tasks.
The view of DeGarmo Plumbing is to use the OSHA standards as the bare minimum and build upon those regulations. Employees are advised to utilize available resources before the work begins. DeGarmo Plumbing educates employees regularly on fall protection, electrical safety, hot work permits, Hazardous Chemical Communication, lockout / tagout, emergency evacuation, portable fire extinguishers, powered industrial trucks, confined space, Bloodborne Pathogens, and excavation safety.
