Civil contractor: Safety Under 100,000 hours (TIE)
Tunista’s safety program promotes all three of AGC’s values: skill, integrity and responsibility.
Skill comes in to play with every employee. Each employee must have the necessary safety training prior to accessing construction sites, operating equipment and engaging in construction activities.
Every person in the company takes responsibility for safety, from the top down. Tunista establishes the need for continual safety training and has implemented a company-wide training program to ensure compliance and success. All employees are encouraged to take the responsibility upon themselves to stop work, and stop someone else’s work if they see an unsafe work condition or hazard.
Tunista’s safety program assists in encouraging this by providing “stop work” wallet cards in English and Spanish that all employees receive on their day of hire at orientation. If they have to hand them out and don’t get them back, there plenty available at each job site so they can always have them on hand.
