Champion Site Prep, Inc. ensures proper training, licensure, and ongoing safety checklists.
All of our employees complete a pre-employment safety training course. Field personnel are assigned the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). We conduct weekly Tool Box Safety meetings, monthly safety committee meetings, and company-wide quarterly safety meetings.
Additionally, we conduct regular site reviews with written reports to discuss with the project manager, site superintendent, and site foreman.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
The following checklists may help you take steps to avoid hazards that cause injuries, illnesses and fatalities. As always, be cautious and seek help if you are concerned about a potential hazard.
Eye and Face & Ear Protection
- Safety glasses or face shields are worn anytime work operations can cause foreign objects getting into the eye such as during welding, cutting, grinding, nailing (or when working with concrete and/or harmful chemicals or when exposed to flying particles).
- Eye and face protectors are selected based on anticipated hazards.
- Safety glasses or face shields are worn when exposed to any electrical hazards including work on energized electrical systems.
- Occupational noise-induced hearing loss is 100% preventable through proper use of suitable ear protection when doing work that is noisy or when working near machinery that is noisy.
- What is “noisy”? Rule of Thumb : If you have to raise your voice to be understood by a person that you can reach out and touch with your thumb, you should wear hearing protection while doing the job or working near the source of the noise.
- Ear plugs are provided and required to reduce occupational induced noise and prevent occupational noise-induced hearing loss.
- Construction workers should wear work shoes or boots with slip-resistant and puncture-resistant soles.
- Safety-toed footwear is worn to prevent crushed toes when working around heavy equipment or falling objects.
- Gloves should fit snugly.
- Workers wear the right gloves for the job (for example, heavy-duty rubber gloves for concrete work, welding gloves for welding, insulated gloves and sleeves when exposed to electrical hazards).
- Workers shall wear hard hats where there is a potential for objects falling from above, bumps to their heads from fixed objects, or of accidental head contact with electrical hazards.
- Hard hats are routinely inspected for dents, cracks or deterioration.
- Hard hats are replaced after a heavy blow or electrical shock.
- Hard hats are maintained in good condition.
