HEALTH & SAFETY
Assuring the safety of Yonkers’ employees, clients, subcontractors, and the community are paramount. Yonkers’ Safety Program is built on a pro-active approach that incorporates training, oversight and reinforcement. Its aim is to facilitate performing construction operations without harm to people directly or indirectly involved with construction activities.
A core value at Yonkers, Health & Safety is embodied in Yonkers’ Code of Conduct. Yonkers believes in identifying and communicating the hazards workers at each jobsite face, and providing workers training for measures to mitigate the hazards so that they can perform their work without injury to themselves or others.
Safety professionals guide and assist the project team with measures to prevent accidents and injuries. Ultimately, safety requires participation by all employees throughout the organization – from management to workers and subcontractors. Oversight and guidance from safety professionals provides reinforcement critical to the Program’s success.
Committed to a goal of zero accidents and injuries, Yonkers regards environmental, health and safety issues as significant performance indicators of a project. Field activities are monitored at all management levels.
