WE BELIEVE SAFETY IS AN INVESTMENT, NOT AN EXPENSE. WE UNDERSTAND WHAT IT TAKES TO CONSTRUCT FACILITIES IN A SAFE, HEALTHFUL, AND EFFICIENT MANNER. AT VJS, WE BELIEVE IN “SAFETY FIRST.”
COMPANY MILESTONE - 3,000,000 SAFETY HOURS
VJS Construction Services (VJS) has achieved 3,000,000 safe work hours without a lost-time incident.
Our commitment to safety is about more than compliance, but rather to strive for safety excellence in all aspects of work on every project, every day, through employee feedback and engagement.
ON THE JOB
"SAFETY FIRST" ON EVERY JOB
We take safety seriously, and it is a top priority on each VJS project. VJS’ full-time Senior Safety Manager, Elizabeth Polheber visits each job site weekly and oversees our entire safety program.
She works with the Superintendent to ensure all safety requirements are carried out throughout the project duration. 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 of our employees so that they always prioritize safety.
Safety is the responsibility of each employee, not just the safety directors.
VJS is a proud member of the Wisconsin Construction Wellness Community (WCWC) and the Associated General Contractors of America.
We focus on a holistic approach to safety - human, organizational, and technological. We make sure that all our employees are trained and prepared for the tasks they are going to complete. We want our employees to be prepared emotionally and in the right mindset to make sure they are focused on themselves, their crew, and the client.
