Structural Steel Industry Safety

At Skyline Steel Inc. safety plays a large, decision-makiing role in the way we set up shop. In March of 2004 the initial goal was zero accidents. In 2003 we had 91 accidents. So a more realistic goal was to cut the accidents in half for 2004. The company was separated into more defined divisions (Carports, Structural Fabrication, Industrial Fabrication, and Structural Erection) to break up the topics and make the sessions more specific to each area. The separation also helped identifiy safety specific problems, their frequency, what department and began to create patters in the time of year, times of hiring etc. As topics became more specific, our accidents began to go down.

The goal for the department is still zero accidents but to be more realistic we strive to continue to cut the quantities of our accidents in half for the next year.

What Safety has done for us:

In 2004 we began our safety training program. We started with the Structural Field Foremen because it was in our structural department where the larger contractors had increasingly more rigid safety requirements. More and more are requiring 10 and 30 hour training of the Subs. All of our structural foremen now hold 30 hour OSHA traning and the ironworkers and laborers have 10 hour OSHA training. We strive to go above and beyond our standard requirements and offer Annual Fork lift Certifications, Annual Fall Protection Certifications, CDZ, Subpart R and Subpart M Certifications. As some of our General Contractor’s require adherence to more stringent policies, we strive to meet those policies and surpass them.

Out in the field, we are exposed to an uncontrolled environment, other trades and the harsh elements of the Southwest. We will continue to see improvements in safety as the company grows and matures. Our goal for 2006 is to have everyone trained in their specific areas and in either OSHA 10 or OSHA 30 hour classes within their first year of employment.

Fleet Management:

Federally mandated requirements ask that we train our drivers in Drug and Alcohol policies, and Driver Basics. We take the time with our drivers to make sure they know the proper ways to complete thier required reporting including Accident Reporting and Hours of Service reporting. As our own hauling service we are exposed to the hazards of the road. It is just as important for our drivers to be aware of thier driving regulations as well as others.
