VJS’ Commitment to Safety
Our project team understands the challenges and the necessity of maintaining a healthy environment for all building occupants during the construction process. All life safety concerns, including, building egress modifications, fire alarms, and fire protection systems are continually monitored. Interior phasing is sequenced and designed to maintain an environment that minimizes disruption and maximizes isolation opportunities for occupants and construction services. We will continually monitor and modify, as necessary our project phasing and utilization plans as required to maintain an efficient jobsite. We are committed to flexibility and your priorities will guide the construction process.
Traditionally, construction companies have used such things as OSHA compliance, lost work time hours, and experience modification factors as the only tools in their safety arsenal. We believe safety is much more than just OSHA compliance and numbers that measure past experiences. VJS emphasizes that "safety is the only way to work." It is the obligation of every VJS employee to make safety a priority. VJS management believes any incident, regardless of severity, means we have failed. Our corporate motto is, "Anything Less Than Exceptional is Unacceptable." What sets us apart from other general contractors is our pre-planning approach to ensure safety, the involvement of senior management in reinforcing safety standards throughout the company and the relationship that we build with each and every one of our employees so that they prioritize safety at all times. Safety is the responsibility of each employee, not just the safety directors.
Our commitment to safety is about more than compliance but rather to strive for safety excellence in all aspects of our work on each and every project, everyday through employee feedback and engagement.
