WBI Safety Training

Improving safety performance is a strategic priority at Wayne Brothers. We work hard to continuously enhance our safety program to insure the safety of our clients and employees. The following summarizes some of the proactive programs Wayne Brothers has instituted:

WBI has one of the most comprehensive instruction programs of any contractor including:

  • New Employee Orientation and Safety Training for all employees on their very first day of work
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) provided to all employees, and replaced as required
  • Job Site Safety Orientation specific to their onsite job tasks
  • Daily Pre-Task Planning that focuses on daily work tasks and related risks
  • Weekly Safety “Toolbox Talks”
  • Weekly safety instructions including a 24 week safety program
  • Safety Training Units within WBI Craft/Supervisory/Executive Management Training Programs
  • Specialized Safety Training Activities including OSHA 10/30 Hour, Competent Person, Trench, and Confined Space Training.

SAFETY PROGRAM


Pre Employment Screening
• Pre-employment and random drug testing throughout employment
• Drug-free work environment & zero tolerance policy
• Physical Exam
• Fit for Duty Exam

More Safety Protocols
• Four full-time safety professionals including a Safety Director and three Field Safety Supervisors. This increases our response to project needs and unannounced safety audits.
• Two full-time bi-lingual trainers who are OSHA trained. This allows WBI to effectively communicate the latest OSHA information and best safety practices to our Hispanic workforce.
• Safety Incentive Rewards Program to reward employees who attain WBI’s goal of zero accidents.
• WBI has addressed personal accountability for safety actions by implementing a stringent disciplinary policy. The goal is to stop the unsafe behavior before an accident occurs.
• The prevention of soft tissue injuries presents a challenge for any construction contractor. WBI has elicited the expertise of a chiropractor to develop a stretching program for the purpose of reducing these types of debilitating injuries.
