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.

 

EMPLOYEES IMG_1231

Yonkers’ employees are a critical piece of the safety program. Yonkers expects workers to take pride and ownership of the Safety Program to assure that they and their coworkers go home safely to their families every night.

All management level employees are required to have OSHA 30-hour training, and all workers at every jobsite a minimum of 10-hour OSHA. Training is provided specific to each job site and the tasks at hand.

We expect our employees to work as a team, in partnership with owners and subcontractors to assure a safe workplace for all.

SUBCONTRACTORSIMG_1252

All subcontractors working on any Yonkers project are required to sign-on to Yonkers’ Safety Program, comply with all project-specific safety requirements, and provide job-specific hazard analyses for the areas of work they will perform. In addition, subcontractors should be aware of the project’s Owners requirements and be able to comply with them
