Safety

Our Accident Prevention Program makes a difference. The prevention of accidents is both our moral obligation and good business. Our safety efforts are based on our belief that every working person deserves a safe and healthful place to work.

The responsibility for the health and safety of our employees goes far beyond simple compliance with the federal and state regulatory requirements. We understand that the protection of our and your employees and property, the public, and our environment are essential to the successful completion of every project we undertake.

Safety is more than a priority at The Micar Company – it’s a value. It’s ingrained in who we are and how we work. It’s a company-wide responsibility from the President to our craft work force. As mangers we are dedicated to establish and protect our safe working environments through formal programs and by being a safety resource for our workforce. Our Accident Prevention Program includes formal safety training, inspections, audits and formal reporting. Our branch and project management teams administer our Accident Prevention Programs at the branch and project level, with the support of our full-time Safety Manager who reports directly to the President. As a workforce we understand that it’s our responsibility to maintain safe working environments as a team of leaders through the identification and correction of unsafe work conditions and work practices.

At the Micar Company, we recognize that accidents are preventable. Our goal continues to be ZERO ACCIDENTS.

From our Safety Manager:

“As a result of Micar’s commitment to safety, we have one of the cleanest records in the area in regards to accident prevention. I work hands on with each employee on a regular basis to get them personally involved with safety. We give weekly safety meetings along with daily gang box talks, safety videos, presentations and classroom OSHA training, all to stay one step ahead of the next potential accident.

I also serve on the Contracts Safety Program committee at the ADM. This committee involves all the contractors working with ADM and uses the DuPont Safety Program which helps us in our proactive approach to safety.

But maintaining a safe working environment is more than various trainings and committees. It takes a culture focused on ZERO ACCIDENTS.”
