Echelon Construction has developed a comprehensive Safety Program through consultation with Safety Experts, Insurance Agents and our own past experience. This program was designed to protect all of our employees, the subcontracted work force, inspectors, owner’s representatives, project visitors and the existing neighborhood. We are proud to say that we have an exemplary safety record and enjoy a preferred insurance rate due to our continuing safety excellence. 

The safety and health of our employees is ECHELON’s most important business consideration. No employee will be required to do a job that they consider unsafe. ECHELON will comply with all applicable OSHA workplace safety and health requirements and maintain occupational safety and health standards that equal or exceed the best practices in the industry.

ECHELON has established a safety committee, consisting of management and labor representatives, whose responsibility is identifying hazards and unsafe work practices, removing obstacles to accident prevention, and helping evaluate the company’s effort to achieve an accident-and-injury-free workplace.

ECHELON pledges to do the following:

  • Strive to achieve the goal of zero accidents and injuries.

  • Provide mechanical and physical safeguards wherever they are necessary.

  • Conduct routine safety and health inspections to find and eliminate unsafe working conditions, control health hazards, and comply with all applicable OSHA safety and health requirements.

  • Train all employees in safe work practices and procedures.

  • Provide employees with necessary personal protective equipment and train them to use and care for it properly.

  • Enforce company safety and health rules and require employees to follow the rules as a condition of employment.

  • Investigate accidents to determine the cause and prevent similar accidents.


Managers, supervisors, and all other employees share responsibility for a safe and healthful workplace.

  • Management is accountable for preventing workplace injuries and illnesses. Management will consider all employee suggestions for achieving a safer, healthier workplace. Management also will keep informed about workplace safety-and-health hazards and regularly review the company’s safety and health program.

  • Supervisors are responsible for supervising and training workers in safe work practices.

  • Supervisors must enforce company rules and ensure that employees follow safe practices during their work.

  • Employees are expected to participate in safety and health program activities including, immediately reporting hazards, unsafe work practices, and accidents to supervisors or a safety committee representative, wearing required personal protective equipment, and, participating in and supporting safety committee activities.
