Our construction company knows safety
For us, there are two things we value above all. Taking care of our team. And getting the job done.
The complete safety of our workers is one of the greatest keys to our success. We’ve invested heavily in it. After all, we’ve had an effective written safety program since the 1980s, well before it became standard practice for construction companies.
We’ve always held a safety EMR score below one. We’ve completed more than one million work hours on job sites without an accident causing lost time. And we’ve been recognized on numerous occasions with safety awards. The Korte Company is ISNetworld certified, and we're always open to sharing our complete safety track record.
We have more than 20 Safety Trained Supervisors Construction (STSC) on our staff. The STSC is a certification awarded by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) to individuals who meet rigorous experience and education requirements, including passing a comprehensive examination that is accredited through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). Many companies don’t have one STSC. We have 20. Continuous safety training is the key to maintaining our high standards of Safety.
Through Korte University, our team has access to an online learning center that provides training and preparation for safety certifications. All of our team members meet OSHA 30 Hours Construction safety training requirements along with CPR/1st Aid, fall protection, confined space training and a host of other programs. Our goal is to maintain at least 8 hours of training each year for our team members.
At The Korte Company, we keep our safety standards up to the rigors of military-grade quality, keeping our team trained to Army Corps of Engineers EM 385 standards.
We’ve got specialty safety knowledge for specialty construction jobs
Whatever environment we’re in, we know what we’re doing. If our team works in an active manufacturing setting for your build, we structure our work not only to avoid disrupting production, but also to keep both our team and your team safe. We build safely around your active operation. Our Healthcare Facility team is trained to work in and around these specific facilities. Our teams take great pride in providing the client and their patients with the latest in healthcare facility construction safety. Our safety process starts long before the construction team steps onto the site. We develop our plans and construction program to the best practices in healthcare construction in occupied facilities.
If your needs are a renovation of your current facility, our team will walk you through the EPA’s requirements of inspecting your facility for asbestos, lead or a host of other items that will need to be considered to give you the peace of mind that your project will be constructed safely as well as with quality. And a number of our team members have even earned RRP (Renovation, Repair and Painting Program) certification to work with lead.
Safe construction means a better bottom line
Our extensive, thorough safety practices allow us to deliver our work safely and efficiently. Our proven processes mean no slowdowns, so we can keep your project moving as rapidly as possible. No worries. No headaches. No delays. Safety is just one more way we build smart.
