Letter from the Safety Manager
In a highly hazardous industry such as construction, safety is an investment that consistently delivers real benefits. A safe work environment helps to keep skilled employees on the job and projects on track. Accidents that could result in injuries and schedule delays can also be reduced, as well as the potential for litigation and regulatory action.
As Safety Manager for MZI Group, Inc. I am proud to say our company works in the safest manner possible and is consistent with best-in class construction practices. Our top priority is the safety of the general public, our employees and other personnel on or near any MZI Group worksite. Each operation must meet or exceed our standards, and no work is performed without safeguards in place and careful planning.
MZI employs a multi-point approach to safety, including incident tracking, risk assessment, worksite inspection, employee training, continuing education, accurate record keeping and outreach. This approach extends to the selection of subcontractors who must also embrace a strong safety ethic. Our commitment to safety begins with our CEO Arthur Miller and continues with every employee. Managers and supervisors share responsibilities for the daily compliance to MZI’s safety program; project managers, superintendents and foremen are trained in accident investigation, substance abuse, conflict resolution, pre- job safety planning, loss analysis and subcontractor management. Construction and design office personnel must complete required OSHA training.
MZI ensures I am on the cutting edge of all safety-related standards with seminars, trainings and certifications. I know our Safety and Health Program will minimize, if not eliminate incidents, injuries and illnesses while surpassing the best practices of similar operations. Every day, our goal is nothing less than zero accidents and injuries. Our mindset is safety - first, last and always.
