Safety is a top priority at State Mechanical Services. We continually strive to maintain the highest standards in HVAC safety, with employees at all levels working diligently to carry out our safety policies. We feel that safety is the result of careful attention to detail by our team as well as our subcontract partners.
With the cooperation of our insurance carrier, State Mechanical Services developed safety and prevention guidelines that we follow on all projects, regardless of size. These guidelines were created based on our knowledge of construction and our extensive industry experience.
The primary focus of our safety program is to anticipate and control the conditions and marginal safety practices that may occur as each job progresses. Our foremen are required to attend periodic seminars to ensure compliance with all federal, state and local regulations. Supervisors at all levels and our safety officer are responsible for seeing that our field personnel as well as our subcontractors follow the safety requirements, so that we may achieve the highest degree of safety awareness.
Our formal Safety Program was implemented to increase each employee’s adherence to the safety guidelines and provide positive reinforcement for workers to remain accident free. As a result of these proactive safety measures, State Mechanical Services has been able to achieve lower Experience Modification Rates (EMRs) and create a "Safety First" culture.
At State Mechanical Services, safety awareness is an integral part of our company’s philosophy. We strive to provide a safe working environment free from recognized hazards. Toward that end, we offer a variety of safety training programs:
- Fall Protection
