Safety is a very important issue at Schlecht Construction. We have made numerous strides over the past few years to develop, implement, and improve our safety program. Our safety record has been outstanding.
Our Safety Committee conducts monthly meetings, develops and initiates new policies, and plans for safety training. We issue monetary safety bonuses based on our safety record every six months to all eligible employees.
Weekly jobsite safety meetings are held at each project and weekly jobsite hazard inspections are performed. First aid and CPR classes are held in-house for all employees every two years or as required.
The company continually upgrades its corporate safety policy manual, and requires subcontractor compliance on every job. Important components of our policy are zero-tolerance for drug and alcohol use and an in-depth hazardous communications program.
Schlecht has received recognition from both the Ohio Casualty Group and the Associated Builders & Contractors for the development and initiation of a quality safety program.
