Safety & Training

Safety & Training

With more than 40 years of experience we have learned that one of the primary keys to a successful building project is the utilization of proper safety and training techniques. At LeMaster Steel Erectors, we are committed to policies and practices in order to avoid occupational injuries and damage to property. We have on staff a full-time Safety Director to ensure the adherence to these policies and practices in the workplace.

Safety Program Highlights

  • All job sites are visited weekly by the Safety Director to inspect for any hazards and equipment deficiencies as well as to ensure that our safety policies are being adhered to by our employees.
  • New job sites are inspected by the Safety Director before work begins to ensure all safety concerns are addressed up front and communicated to our employees.
  • 100% fall protection when working 6 feet from an exposed fall hazard of 6 feet or greater.
  • At least one-third of our workforce is certified in workplace First Aid and CPR.
  • A comprehensive and successful fleet safety policy has been implemented for every employee operating a company vehicle.

Training Program Highlights

Our employees are trained to recognize and correct safety hazards before an accident takes place. An emphasis on job training and safety empowers our employees to perform in the most efficient and effective manner possible. Each newly hired employee undergoes a 2-day orientation and an in-depth training session followed by a 90-day period of continuous teaching and evaluation.

Day 1 of New-Hire Orientation is conducted at our office and covers procedures in both safety and company policies. While the primary focus of this session is our safety policy, training also includes proper procedures for construction assembly and equipment training and certification.

Day 2 of New-Hire Orientation is conducted on the job site and utilizes hands-on training for job duties, equipment operation and safety procedures. During the first month, the newly-hired employee will receive occasional on the job inspections and additional training as needed.

A 30-day evaluation is administered at the end of this period. Following the 30-day evaluation, the newly-hired employee will receive occasional on the job inspections and additional training sessions over a 60-day period.

At the end of this period the employee will undergo a 90-day evaluation. Upon passing the evaluation satisfactorily, the employee will be released from his probationary period and will achieve full-time employee benefits.
