Safety Before Production

Safety will not be sacrificed for production. It is our policy to provide and maintain a safe and healthy work environment at all times. The goal of DeMaria management is to prevent occupational accidents, injuries, illnesses, or unnecessary environmental damage.

Protecting Everyone

These objectives are achieved through management leadership by placing accident prevention and the protection of the health and safety of our own employees, the clients’ employees, the general public, and the employees of every subcontractor above any other consideration of job operations or administration.

Plan for Safety

DeMaria believes that pre-planning and coordination are key to employee and project safety. The planning process does not stop at the pre-planning stage, but is a continuous process of assessment and evaluation. Where there are significant hazards we will take all practicable steps to eliminate, isolate, or minimize the hazard. Every procedure must be a safe procedure. Shortcuts in safe procedures will not be tolerated.

All Accidents Are Preventable

  • Do it safely or not at all;
  • There is always time to do it right;
  • When in doubt, find out.

Proactive Prevention

If a worker observes any unprotected job that may pose a potential threat to their health or safety, he or she must inform management and management must take adequate precautions. All employees and contractors working on a DeMaria project adhere to the requirements of this policy, as well as the safety rules, instructions, and procedures issued in conjunction with it as a condition of employment.

No Exceptions to Safety

All subcontractors and visitors to any DeMaria job site, including, but not limited to, suppliers, owner representatives, business agents, architects or engineers, regulatory authorities, and insurance company representatives shall be required to follow all safety rules and regulations in effect during their time on the project. The director of safety, project manager, project superintendents, and foremen have the full support of the DeMaria executive management team to enforce the provisions of this policy as it relates to the responsibilities assigned to them.

Working safely may get old, but so do those who practice it.
