To put it bluntly, Johnston Contractors number one priority every single day, year in and year out is to ensure that all employees are safe. Being a local company working with local craftsman, the men and women on the job site are the number one and most valuable asset. Safety is at the forefront of every conversation and project that we complete.
A Proactive Approach to safety means the safety program is actively managed by a trained and dedicated staff of professionals. A safe work environment is provided by pre-planning for any hazards that may arise during a project. When existing hazards are unavoidable Johnston Contractors minimizes their effects through environmental controls, training in safe work methods and providing personal protective equipment. Scheduled and surprise inspections are conducted regularly to identify potentially unsafe conditions and provide immediate correction.
Johnston Contractors has partnered with OSHA in the past on larger projects. During the construction of the US Cellular Coliseum Johnston Contractors minimized the lost time incidents to less than 1/3 the national average.
