Recognition and consistency are the primary attributes of the safety culture at Cobra Building Envelope Contractors. Cobra’s workforce training starts with the management and ownership sharing a commitment to safety so that their workforce knows that they are supported.

When employees are individually recognized for outstanding safety practices in front their peer group, it builds camaraderie and teamwork, and validates the employee’s safety performance. Each employee, regardless of title, knows from day one the obligation of making safety the primary operational priority every day.

Cobra has brought most of its training in-house to tailor the curriculum to fit their needs. This has afforded them the ability to target and enhance the strengths of their program and to identify any weaknesses of their training.

Cobra has also gone to a more frequent training schedule, which has shown to increase retention of core materials that used to be refreshed only every three years. They have also established an authorized-driver program where select employees are trained in practical driving skills.
