We regard safety as a primary concern in our business. We are trained to recognize, evaluate and control potential environmental health hazards associated with painting service operations.
We adhere to standard safety regulations such as identifying and implementing non-specific hazards and control methods, hazard communications, occupational and environmental safety procedures.
We ensure the safety of our employees and clients. We adhere to all safety regulations on-and off-site, consistently and carefully working to ensure that we observe strict guidelines with all prescribed safety and protection standards.
Our professional crew are trained to correctly identify and label various chemical warnings, read Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS’s), and complete all required employee education and training modules. Our safety certification program is extensive and thorough, ensuring that the employee is able to use all equipment and chemicals correctly, according to both Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and company standards.
But we don’t stop there, we regularly conduct product and refresher training programs to ensure that our employees are constantly reminded and keep them up to date with the latest in product development and technology. The employees then go through an assessment process and should be able to process and repeat the correct safety procedures.
Since most of our projects are conducted off-site in different locations, our employees are trained to properly clean up, secure, and put away all chemicals and equipment for the project.
Adhering to the correct safety OSHA approved guidelines will ensure that the employee is safe from any potential hazards. To emphasize the importance of safety, any OSHA certified employee who fails to display correct safety procedures on- and off-site are subject to disciplinary action.
This is not to discourage employees but to emphasize the importance of exhibiting correct safety procedures at all times. Proper OSHA certified safety procedures ensure the continued good relations and health of both internal and external parties.
