(Concord, NH) North Branch Construction has donated the proceeds from the firm’s annual Safety Fine Program to two deserving non-profit organizations – NFI North, Inc. out of Contoocook, NH, and Families in Transition-New Horizons in Manchester, NH. In 2021, the Safety Fine Program proceeds totaled nearly $3,500, resulting in a $1,750 donation to each organization.
North Branch Construction developed its Safety Fine Program fifteen years ago, with the intent to increase hazard recognition, reduce risk of injury, and create an overall safer working environment for all personnel working on North Branch Construction jobsites. At a minimum, the program requires subcontractors, as well as North Branch Construction’s own employees, to abide by the OSHA Construction Industry Regulations at all times. When safety violations are observed, it is North Branch Construction’s objective to correct them immediately. Consequently, the firm warrants safety fines for any repeat violations. Each year, North Branch Construction donates all proceeds from the Safety Fine Program to non-profit organizations the firm has worked with during that year.
North Branch Construction completed two renovation projects for Families in Transition-New Horizons (FIT-NH) at the end of 2020. The renovations were completed in two buildings owned and operated by FIT-NH and were completed concurrently. The renovations allowed FIT-NH to respond more effectively to operational limitations due to the COVID-19 pandemic and provide assistance for food insecurity and homelessness moving into the future. Families in Transition-New Horizons (FIT-NH) provides hunger relief, emergency shelter, safe affordable housing, and supportive services to individuals and families who are homeless or in need, enabling them to gain self-sufficiency and respect.
