Concord, NH – North Branch Construction’s dedication to jobsite safety includes the implementation of the North Branch Construction Safety Fine Program on all of its projects. This program was developed in 2005 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, it 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, the objective is to correct them immediately. Consequently, the firm warrants safety fines for any repeat violations.
At the end of each year, all proceeds from the North Branch Construction Safety Fine Program are donated to nonprofit charities and organizations. This year, the firm donated the proceeds to Colby-Sawyer College. North Branch Construction recently completed construction of the new Center for Art + Design on the Colby-Sawyer campus in New London, N.H.
North Branch continues to raise the bar for construction jobsite safety by performing random inspections and obtaining OSHA 30-Hour Certification for all of its project managers and project superintendents.
This diligence has led to North Branch Construction once again obtaining the lowest EMR of all 38 members of the Workers’ Compensation Self-Assurance Group, with which the firm is affiliated. North Branch Construction also reported no lost time injuries for 2017.
