Our continuous improvement initiatives empower co-workers to take an active role in creating a safe workplace. Moncon Inc offers company-wide, targeted new-hire orientation programs, scheduled safety trainings, weekly “tool box” talks on job sites, daily equipment inspections, observation programs, period reviews and weekly, monthly safety incentive programs to appreciate co-workers & prevent incidents from occurring.
Moncon Inc implemented comprehensive safety programs that allow us to deliver on our commitment to safety. Our safety programs include:
In an effort to integrate safety into every aspect of our business, Moncon placed concrete safety managers as members of our corporate staff. Along with them, we have Deck watch supervisors. Management personnel, from project manager to the first line supervisor, attend formal safety training sessions constantly. This improves safety awareness and provides instruction for implementing safety regulations on construction sites.
New Hire Orientation
Every Moncon Inc worker attends safety orientation training before beginning their work. We issue each new hire a Safety Handbook and present them safety training videos: available in both English and Spanish.
Throughout the year, Moncon Inc schedules OSHA recertification training sessions. In addition, various positions receive sessions on a more frequent basis; field supervisors receive weekly safety training sessions; and specialized safety training for job-specific tasks, such as rigging, scaffolding are offered throughout the year.
Periodic Job Review
Moncon Inc Concrete Safety managers conduct periodic job reviews to ensure full compliance with Safety Policies, OSHA and any other applicable local, state or federal regulations. The Concrete Safety Manager assesses the effectiveness level and performance of all job site personnel in meeting Safety Standards, as well as those required by any other regulatory body. Along with good housekeeping practices are a few of the ways we perform to minimize the risk of accidents. Before the Safety Specialist leaves the job site, all areas requiring improvement are addressed and communicated to each co-worker on-site, and corrective measures are taken.
Weekly “Tool Box” Discussions
Each week, fifteen-minute “Tool Box” safety talks are distributed to the workers. Specific topics are suggested for discussion; more importantly, supervisors are requested to review recent injuries, unsafe acts, additions to Hazard Communications and upcoming work requiring special crew precautions.
Accident Reporting and Documentation
Accident reports are reviewed by the Concrete Safety Manager, and Project Manager. Corrective action is taken when required.
Fall Protection Program
Includes training in leading edge formwork, proper equipment and tie-off procedures, controlled deck access and qualified personnel recognition.
