It is the policy of Marathon Electrical Contractors, Inc. to provide a workplace free of all recognized safety and health hazards. Our Safety Program presents a strong emphasis on attitude, education, commitment, accountability, and reinforcement, under the direction of dedicated Senior Management and the Safety Department.
Lead by our Safety Director, Area Safety Directors and Safety Committees, each level of management and labor is trained accordingly in: First Aid / CPR, OSHA’s 30 and 10 hour Occupational Safety and Health Training Course for the Construction Industry, Specialized Training, such as High Voltage Training, Competent Person Training in every area of work we are involved as a company and as often as needed.
Additional training is also provided at weekly jobsite safety meetings. Lead by the Job Manager and/or Safety Officer, the safety meetings identify site specific hazards for that week and provide specific methods or instruction to work safely.
Our knowledge and performance of safety practices is then internally audited and reinforced by a series of written inspections by the Safety Director, Area Safety Directors, Safety Officers, Project Managers, and Job Managers.
These inspections identify hazards and provide accountability to see each deficiency addressed. Each employee is also required to daily inspect his/her work environment, tools, equipment, and safety practices of others. Deficiencies are reported to the Job Manager immediately.
Our commitment and attitude towards safety is reinforced through an evolving safety incentive program that promotes accountability and proactive resolution. Every employee has a voice in the recognition and control of hazards associated with our industry and we are firmly committed to providing all employees with a safe and healthy work place.
