At JPS, we firmly believe that our team is our greatest asset. Therefore, we take pride in developing a safety culture that ensures all personnel return safely home.
Here are the three key ways in which we make safety a priority:
- We make safety a key part of our culture. This starts with our top-down approach, where management is trained to set a good example for employees and subcontractors. We strive for (and celebrate) a zero-incident track record.
- We emphasize safety training and best practices. Our training programs are designed to reduce job site confusion and prevent lost-time incidents. We develop ongoing safe job procedures and best practices.
- Equipment maintenance is regular and thorough. We monitor all vehicles and equipment for deficiencies that may cause potential hazards.
As the HSE Manager at the JPS Construction Group, I am responsible for planning, implementing, and overseeing our team’s safety at work, which means safety is my top priority. I am committed to compliance and take pride in fostering an open and positive safety culture that includes everyone as we strive for (and celebrate) a zero-incident track record.
Safety is the foundation that supports our core values: integrity, inclusion, and innovation. These values allow us to provide the best quality of service and maintain a strong, open, and proactive health and safety culture. I draw from 8 years of direct safety experience and am dedicated to developing the safest job procedures and practices as the JPS Construction Group experiences a rapid growth rate.
