Concord, NH – North Branch Construction has donated the proceeds from the firm’s annual Safety Fine Program to two nonprofit organizations: NFI North, Inc. out of Contoocook, and Families in Transition-New Horizons in Manchester. In 2021, the Safety Fine Program proceeds totaled nearly $3,500, resulting in a $1,750 donation to each organization.
The firm developed its Safety Fine Program 15 years ago with the intent to increase hazard recognition, reduce risk of injury, and create an overall safer working environment for all personnel working on North Branch Construction jobsites. At a minimum, the program requires subcontractors, as well as North Branch Construction’s own employees, to abide by the OSHA Construction Industry Regulations at all times. When safety violations are observed, it is North Branch Construction’s objective to correct them immediately. Consequently, the firm warrants safety fines for any repeat violations. Each year, North Branch Construction donates all proceeds from the Safety Fine Program to nonprofit organizations the firm has worked with during that year.
North Branch Construction completed two renovation projects for Families in Transition-New Horizons (FIT-NH) at the end of 2020. FIT-NH provides hunger relief, emergency shelter, safe affordable housing, and supportive services to individuals and families who are homeless or in need, enabling them to gain self-sufficiency and respect.
The firm is currently renovating a property at 573 Maple Street in Manchester into an eight-bedroom group home facility for clients of NFI North, Inc., an accredited nonprofit organization providing specialized education, counseling, supported employment, care management, foster care, residential services, and other services helping people living with mental illness or behavioral disorders.
