Commitment to Safety
Our employee's safety is the main emphasis of our company culture. It is the stated goal of the company to have continuous improvement and ZERO injuries.
The company commitment to safety encourages an environment that emphasizes comprehensive training with a teamwork approach and rewards for success. The key to this approach is our experienced supervisors. Our supervisors average over 20 years experience in the industry. The company commitment to safety involves training programs for Supervision and hourly employees.
The safety process at Cowin also encompasses subcontractors and suppliers. They are held to our rigid guidelines for project safety and must participate in the safety process. This includes a comprehensive substance abuse program.
The company safety program is overseen by a company officer with over 20 years experience in the industry. He works closely with MSHA, OSHA, our insurers and employees.
