all hands on deck.

industry-recognized safety program //
McCoy Rockford is a safety authority in the industry. Our company’s safety program is directed by a full-time Safety and Risk Manager and includes in-house routine safety training and refresher courses and OSHA safety training. We also perform onsite Job Safety Analysis (JSAs) prior to beginning any project to address all potential hazards. Once a project begins, onsite safety is monitored by OSHA-certified field supervisors, who are also trained by the National Safety Council in CPR and First Aid.

We operate the “Stop Work Authority” process, which requires a stop, notify, correct and resume approach for resolution of perceived unsafe conditions. SafeStart, a behavioral program, and Smith System, a driver program, are also company-wide safety initiatives. To maintain our safety culture, employees receive our safety manual, comprised of over 80 documents detailing safety guidelines and procedures for both the office environment and commercial job site. The manual addresses everything from electrical safety, tool safety and fall protection, to environmental handling and blood-borne pathogen exposure.
