Safety vision statement
Winger Companies’ Safety Vision is to provide a safe and healthy place of employment for our employees. The following safety values are integral components to our overall core business beliefs.
The health and safety of our employees is valued as priority one in every job that we perform.
The prevention of accidents is our ultimate goal at all times.
Safety is an attitude and a culture that each and every employee MUST take personal responsibility for.
Each of us has an obligation to ourselves, our families, our fellow employees, and our customers, to work safely.
Safety is leading by example.
Zero injuries are possible.
As a member of our organization, safety consciousness MUST always exist in your thinking and planning. After an accident occurs, it is too late to prevent it.
At Winger Companies, each and every employee is an extremely valuable resource to us. We foster a safe, caring work environment. Our sincere desire for all of our employees go home to their loved ones and friends, unharmed from the work day’s activities. In order to achieve this, all employees must have the safety training, PPE, tools, and materials they need to be successful.
All of our union trades have a comprehensive apprenticeship program that teaches the skills needed to do their job safely and professionally. All of our field employees have OSHA 10-Hour Construction Safety Training. All of our Supervisors and Foreman are expected to complete the OSHA 30-Hour Construction Safety Training. Safety personnel have completed the OSHA 500/502 Construction Outreach Training and/or the OSHA 30-Hour Construction Safety Training.
Training does not stop in the classroom. Training is carried throughout every day, teaching our apprentices and helpers the safest way to perform their sometimes very dangerous job tasks.
Winger has reached several safety milestones in the past year, never before achieved. Our employees have worked very hard to achieve this significant breakthrough in our company history. They have proven that safety “is” important to them.
