We believe that safety is a direct reflection of our relational and organizational skills. Safety embodies all of our values and is the most fundamental indicator of project success. We truly care about people and understand that we are responsible for their well-being on our projects, thus we are committed to the health and safety of all personnel on our projects.
At DesCor Builders, we proactively manage challenges instead of reacting after it’s too late.
We plan for safe projects by:
- Building in safe processes during the preconstruction phase
- Developing site-specific safety plans unique to each project
- Employing a full-time, in-house specialist committed 100% to safety
Our plan for safety is continually reinforced through:
- Daily site inspections
- Weekly all-hands safety meetings on each project
- Ongoing analysis of safety trends and leading indicators
Whether an individual is a worker on site or a visitor to the construction project, we strive to provide the safest working conditions possible!
