(Concord, NH) North Branch Construction participated in National Fall Prevention Safety Stand-Down week by hosting OSHA Assistant Area Director George Kilens and Compliance Assistance Specialist Andrew Palhof at the firm’s Concord office for a presentation about fall hazards and prevention. North Branch Construction’s entire staff, along with safety representatives from local subcontractors including Envirovantage, Multi-Weld, CRM, and Chestnut & Cape, were in attendance.
North Branch Construction’s award-winning Safety Department continues to raise the bar for construction jobsite safety with the development and utilization of a Safety Fine Program, by performing random jobsite inspections, and by obtaining OSHA 30-Hour Certification for all of their Project Managers and Project Superintendents. This diligence has led to North Branch Construction repeatedly obtaining the lowest EMR of all members of the Workers’ Compensation Self-Assurance Group with which the firm is affiliated. North Branch Construction also reported zero OSHA Log 300 recordable injuries for 2016. At the end of each year, the company donates all proceeds from its Safety Fine Program to the non-profit charities and organizations that they work with. 2016’s proceeds were given to Mascoma Community Healthcare.
