Every Company in the utility construction industry will reference safety and highlight in words how important it is for the company. At Alvah, we can provide those same words. However, the real question is, how does the company’s performance match those words and how invested is Senior management?
Alvah is proud of its safety performance but realizes that every day is a new day. You cannot deviate or lose focus on the enormous challenge of trying to do the work right and do it in a manner that eliminates risk to employees. It starts at the top with the attitude of management and cascades down through the organization with training, constant reinforcement and behavior modeling. Almost every Wednesday you’ll find Mr. Hale leading a safety session that includes both the Senior leadership and field leadership of the company. Safety doesn’t just happen. It is an intentioned result.
Below are graphs of our OSHA Incident Rates and man hours for the past 5 years. This shows where we were yesterday, the real challenge is to continue to get better today and tomorrow.
