NOTHING MATTERS MORE THAN WORKER SAFETY

SAFETY

“For over 60 years, Kelley Steel Erectors has developed a corporate culture that puts safety above all else.
It would be difficult to find a steel erector company that goes to the lengths we go to in order
to secure the safety of all our employees, both on and off-site.”

We leave nothing to chance. Safety is a core value at Kelley Steel. A successful day for us is not based on production alone, but rather when the men and women we employ make it home safely to their families each and every day. We require rigorous classroom and field training and testing to make sure every worker goes home injury free.

The United States Department of Labor sets and enforces safety standards through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Using OSHA training as a foundation of safety training and hazard awareness, we have created an enviable safety record the exceeds the standards of excellence in our industry.

All of our general foremen are OSHA 30-hour trained, and every three years we do an 8-hour refresher. Our Safety Director is also an experienced Project Manager who has had OSHA 500 Training and is qualified to teach others. He knows the business of safety inside and out.

Safety is a core value at Kelley Steel.

TRADE UNIONS PLACE HIGH PRIORITY ON SAFETY

We are lucky to work with skilled tradesmen whose unions also value safety training. New Ironworker apprentices, for example, now have OSHA 30-hour training which contributes to keeping our job sites safe and secure.

We do our own training on site depending on the qualifications of the people who are hired.

The training record of each worker we hire is examined and documented. If there is any deficiency, we require that worker to complete his required training. The training starts in the classroom but continues on the job site. Our project foreman goes through a job hazard analysis at the start of every day.

OUR PEOPLE ARE OUR MOST VALUABLE RESOURCE

Many of Kelley Steel’s employees are second and third generation with the company, creating a caring family culture. We have decades of experience providing safe working environments for our employees, and we have earned a reputation among our customers and peers as a company that performs quality work safely. Our investment in our employees is also an investment in our industry. We offer multiple accreditation and training programs that allow our employees to gain knowledge and skills to protect themselves and their peers.

Steel fabrication and erection are in the top 10 most hazardous occupations in the country. We don’t take that lightly. Our commitment is unrivaled, and our goal is total elimination of accidents from our fabricating shop to our job sites. We help write State and Federal safety legislation, teach classes for international ironworkers, and evaluate the instructors that provide training.

Every plant manager, superintendent, foremen and project manager receives continued safety training annually. Every team member attends a state-of-the-art orientation program, OSHA and safety training, along with training provided by The International Ironworkers IMPACT program.

ADDITIONAL TRAINING IS GIVEN IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS:

  • Fall hazard and fall protection
  • 30-hour OSHA
  • Hazard communication
  • Emergency response procedures
  • Fire protection and prevention
  • Forklift, Scissor Lift and Boom Lift
  • Proper use of hand tools
  • Rigging
  • Zero-tolerance policy
  • PPE requirements
  • Engineered Safety Systems
    (floats, angel wings, horizontal life lines)
  • Heat illness
  • Infection Control Risk Assessment
  • Leadership and communication

We require that all workers be tied off at six feet which exceeds OSHA requirements. In our industrial settings, we tie-off at four feet.

We are a drug-free workplace, consistent with work rules established by all labor unions as part of their respective collective bargaining agreements.

MEASURING SUCCESS OVER TIME

Companies that enact strict safety rules that reduce accidents and injuries reap the benefits of having their Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC) costs reduced. There is plenty of evidence that we are winning the battle to keep workers safe. Consider, for example, the following:

– We are proud to have earned an Ohio BWC Group Retro Rating with an EMR (Experience Modification Rate) of .99, which beats the industry average. As a result, we enjoy lower Bureau of Workers Compensation costs.

– Our EMR rating is the result of our strong safety program and the reduction of accidents. Between 2015 AND 2019, for example, our man hours increased by 45 percent, yet our total recordable incident rate of injuries decreased by 43 percent. We attribute this solely to the safety culture of the company and the extensive training we require and provide.

– We are equally proud to belong to the Construction Employers Association (CEA) where labor unions and contractors come together to tackle issues of safety, drug testing, and collective bargaining.

– Our safety commitment is also reflected by our being “A” rated through ISNetworld, used by large steel mills. ISNetworld collects safety, quality and regulatory data from more than 70,000 contractors and suppliers all over the world. It is the global leader for helping clients connect with qualified contractors and suppliers.

– Kelley Steel has earned certification from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) as an Advanced Certified Steel Erector with a Metal Deck Erection endorsement. The AISC looks at a company’s training and safety programs as part of its certification evaluation.

We run things the way they should be run. We’re safe.

PROTECT

Our safety record didn’t just happen of its own accord. It came about through focused
attention to the many details that keep workers safe, day in and day out.
