Safety

Integrating Safety with Company Culture

At Renier Construction, we pride ourselves on putting safety at the forefront of each and every project. Because we are a company built on integrity, Renier’s executive team has made the safety of all employees the highest priority. Our company’s safety efforts are led by Kevin Kenney, Renier’s on-staff safety officer. As commercial contractors, Renier teams work with subcontractors, who are held to the same high safety standards. Kenney spends the majority of his time on job sites ensuring that all of our employees, subcontractors, project managers and on-site superintendents are aware of and abide by Renier’s safety guidelines.

Components of Renier’s safety program include:

  • A comprehensive vetting process for all subcontractors
  • Requiring all subcontractors to provide specific safety plans for their scopes of work
  • All Renier superintendents and project managers are required to complete an OSHA 30-hour certification course as well as periodic OSHA 10-hour refresher courses
  • Mandatory First Aid and CPR training, including periodic renewal certification, for all Renier employees
  • Drug-Free Workplace training
  • Formal written job site safety audits by the project superintendent on a weekly basis
  • Renier Safety Committee
    • Meets monthly; consists of representatives from each of the six (6) departments within the company; representatives rotate after serving a 6-month term; all employees participate
    • Works together to evaluate and improve company safety culture
    • Conducts monthly job site safety audits to identify hazards and recommend methods for eliminating or controlling them
    • Reviews all safety-related incidents, accidents, and injuries
  • In-house safety training sessions for project managers, superintendents, Renier Custom and Renier Services personnel
  • Project-specific safety plans are developed to protect not only the project participants but our clients and their customers in the event that the project involves working in an occupied building or space

Additionally, we require that subcontractors and all of their employees attend an orientation session on their first day at the job site to review Renier's safety protocol

  • Specific Renier job site safety requirements
  • Emergency plans
  • Emergency phone numbers
  • Locations of the nearest medical facilities
  • Communication with building owners and the public (if the site is active)
  • Weekly Tool-Box Talk requirements for each subcontractor to discuss safe working habits, ongoing job-site activities, and hazards
