Our Safety CommitmentCommitted to Quality with SAFETY the Priority
At Garbutt Construction Company, we believe no project, task, or schedule is more important that the safety, health, and well-being of our team members and associates working with us to make your vision a reality. Our commitment to safety ensures that everyone goes home injury and accident free on our job site, traveling to, from, and in our offices. This dedication to exemplary safety standards is shown by our consistent ability to maintain a low EMR rating.
Garbutt team members practice the most up-to-date safety procedures, and many field personnel have completed the OSHA 10- and OSHA 30-hour safety certification courses. Trade contractors working in the field on Garbutt projects are expected to uphold their own elevated standards of safety practices, including weekly jobsite safety meetings and reviews.
Garbutt Construction Company has implemented an additional layer of safety expertise at all of our jobsites as participants in AGC Georgia’s workers compensation program. Affinity Service Group (ASG), a wholly owned subsidiary of ACG Georgia, is a third party provider whose professional safety staff conducts regular safety inspections on our jobsites and delivers written safety audits to ensure no unsafe practices occur. Onsite safety training is delivered by ASG staff via their safety van where safety toolbox topics are selected to match the unique safety needs of a project during a particular phase of the construction process.
Site specific safety plans are developed for every project in English and Spanish. These plans are used by Garbutt superintendents and subcontractors to orient jobsite personnel to the specific project and any potential safety issues especially when working in occupied space. Implementation of the jobsite specific safety program continues throughout the project and includes weekly safety meetings with compliance the responsibility of every Garbutt team.
