The 6 Major Elements of the Safety & Health Program at JB STEEL®

1. Safety Management Commitment and employee involvement are complementary. Safety Management commitment, supplied by our safety manager, provides the motivating force and the resources for organizing and controlling activities within an organization. At JB STEEL®, management regards workers safety and health as a fundamental value of the organization and applies its commitment to safety and health protection with as much vigor as to other organizational purposes.

2. Employee Involvement provides the means through which workers develop and/or express their own commitment to safety and health protection, for themselves and for their fellow workers.

3. Worksite Analysis involves a variety of worksite examinations, to identify not only existing hazards but also conditions and operations in which changes might occur to create hazards. Unawareness of a hazard which stems from failure to examine the worksite is a sure sign that safety and health policies and/or practices are ineffective. Effective management actively analyzes the work and worksite, to anticipate and prevent harmful occurrences. Worksite Analysis is executed on every project and is incorporated into the Jobsite Specific Safety Plan created wholesomely by the project team and upheld through all subcontracting.

4. Hazard Prevention and Controls are triggered by a determination that a hazard or potential hazard exists. Where feasible, hazards are prevented by effective design of the jobsite or job. Where it is not feasible to eliminate them, they are controlled to prevent unsafe and unhealthful exposure. Elimination or controls is accomplished in a timely manner, once a hazard or potential hazard is recognized.

5. Safety and Health Training addresses the safety and health responsibilities of all personnel concerned with the site, whether salaried or hourly. It is often most effective when incorporated into other training about performance requirements and job practices. Its complexity depends on the size and complexity of the worksite, and the nature of the hazards and potential hazards at the site.

6. Jobsite Safety Meetings are required on all JB STEEL® projects weekly. Upcoming work is evaluated to ensure proposed means and methods will meet or exceed all safety requirements. Plans are discussed and agreed upon between all crew members and management. Documentation is part of this weekly routine. Safety Manager will attend these meetings at least twice a month on all project.
