Our Safety Performance
Our safety policies, procedures, and training, overseen by our full-time Safety Director, have ensured us an EMR among the best in the industry.
Our Safety Program – Above and Beyond
Going above and beyond to eliminate accidents is the aim every day for everyone at our offices, in our fabrication shops, our warehouse and on Walton job sites. Our safety program exceeds OSHA requirements, raising the bar on the commitment to safety.
We have a culture of safety. Excellence in safety is not a goal, it is an expectation. We establish this expectation from the start. Safety training is an integrated part of Walton’s new employee orientation program. Every employee receives fall protection, GHS/Hazcom, equipment safety and general construction safety training before going to work.
We provide both OSHA 30-hour and 10-hour training in-house to our employees, addressing each sub-part of the OSHA standards. In our training we examine the components of Walton’s Safety Program and how they exceed OSHA standards.
All workers attend a mass safety meeting 2-3 times a month, where we address current issues, safety audit findings and things we can do to stay ahead of the curve. Crews have weekly tool box talks on site as well. At Walton, we use analytics to be proactive, to do our best to share knowledge and prevent accidents from occurring.
Our project teams are expected to lead by example, putting safety first in their daily work activities. For each of our projects, a site specific project safety plan is developed, taking into account the specific safety requirements and environment of the project. This plan outlines the responsibilities relating to safety for everyone on the project.
Our safety principles are firm and our safety program is backed by company policy. We are fully committed to a drug-free work environment through both pre-employment screening and random drug testing for all employees.
