Hutter Construction Corporation has an extensive safety program that covers both field and office staff. We continuously update our program and train employees to ensure our safety success. Every employee, as a condition of employment, maintains safety in every action, on every project, every day.
Focused On Safety
Training is an integral part of Hutter’s safety commitment. In addition to the traditional weekly toolbox talks, ongoing safety training is regularly provided by outside professionals. Among the topics continually addressed: competent persons, confined space, boom lifts, forklifts, snorkel lifts, CPR and first aid. All of our employees, including project managers have received the OSHA 10-Hour certified training and new employees receive the training within 30 days of hire. All of our superintendents have received OSHA 30-Hour training.
Safety performance is paramount to Hutter’s daily operations and project successes. Our performance has been more than satisfactory on a daily basis as well as a project basis. When safety issues have occurred, we have immediately addressed them with our team members, employees and subcontractors.
Hutter tends to self-perform several subcontractor trades in lieu of subcontracting these trades. Because Hutter maintains a work force of one hundred twenty-five to two hundred employees, our incident rate per hours worked is exemplary for our industry.
A review of our safety record indicates that our trend remains better than the industry averages as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. When compared to the individual self-performed trades, our scores are significantly better than our peers.
Hutter Construction prides itself on our very effective safety program.
Hutter Construction has experienced a decrease in our total number of injuries over the past five years. We feel that this is the direct result of our focus on safety and training.
