Monza Safety Policies & Procedures
Monza Construction Company Inc. is committed to providing a safe working environment for our employees, subcontractors, clients, and the public at large. Job Site Safety is one of the most important items we deal with on a day-to-day basis. The most crucial element of Job Site Safety is awareness. The purpose of the following policies and programs are to make all employees aware of our obligations to local, state, and federal agencies as well as our customers, coworkers, and insurance providers.
Job Site Safety
This program covers all facets of safety that our personnel might encounter on a construction job site. Through this program we provide education to our own employees through regularly scheduled company safety meetings as well as to our subcontractors through weekly subcontractor job site meetings. Furthermore, we provide safety equipment and supplies to our employees as required on each job site.
Monza Construction Company Inc. takes our weekly safety meetings very seriously. During this meeting, our project superintendent meets with our subcontractors, suppliers, and customers to review our expectations on safe work procedures. We use this time to review the importance and requirements of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), Materials Safety & Data Sheets (MSDS), and HazCom programs among other things. We usually discuss four (4) topics each week and document these discussions as necessary.
Our Job Site Safety Program has been developed in conjunction with the requirements set forth by federal agencies such as the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) and state governing authorities such as the Arizona State Legislature.
