“Doing the work safely will
give you a quality job.”
Safety is a prime concern at JJH. Our company has a very safe work environment as evidenced by our worker’s compensation modifier rate. JJH has a formalized safety program with a full-time safety coordinator on staff and a significant ongoing safety training program. The safety coordinator inspects all jobsites on a regular basis documenting the results in writing and photographs.
The JJH Safety Committee, headed by the safety coordinator,
is comprised of a company VP, project manager,
superintendent, carpenter and laborer. The participants, except the
safety coordinator, rotate annually providing an opportunity for
different project managers, superintendents, carpenters and laborers
to participate in safety committee meetings and decisions. Their
primary function is to investigate and give feedback on subjects
introduced by the safety director. They also review forms, programs
and incentives, and offer suggestions on how to improve them.
Safety is a priority for all JJH personnel from the president to the field staff which is evident by the number of safety awards received over the years. Safe jobsites are rewarded with a catered “safety” lunch and cake (of course).
