This year marked the 6th annual year for the OSHA National Safety Stand-Down. HKJ participated during the week on all current projects.
A Safety Stand-Down is a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety. Any workplace can hold a stand-down by taking a break to focus on "Fall Hazards" and reinforcing the importance of "Fall Prevention". Employers of companies not exposed to fall hazards, can also use this opportunity to have a conversation with employees about the other job hazards they face, protective methods, and the company's safety policies and goals.
We asked for participation from subcontractors and without hesitation they all agreed to participate with “Safety” in mind.
“Our number one priority is to offer the safest workplace possible for our employees and subcontractors,” said Hal Jordan, President/Founder of HKJ. “It’s important we recognize our employees and subcontractors for being safe,” he added.
Each project hosted a 30-minute Safety Meeting discussing fall protection and ladder safety as the main topics.
“We believe education is key when it comes to Safety,” said Glenn Turner, Environmental Health & Safety Director of HKJ. “We continue to make Safety a main focus for the HKJ culture, and this is one way we approach it,” he added.
Harold K. Jordan & Co., Inc. (HKJ Construction) is proud of our employees and subcontractors for participating in the annual OSHA National Safety Stand-Down. Thank you for making “Safety” a priority.
