Safety

KVCC is committed to creating a company wide culture of health and safety for our employees as well as the traveling public. We hold ourselves accountable for safety at every level. Regardless of role or title, each employee is empowered, and expected to be engaged in fostering a culture of safety.

KVCC Safety Programs:

We have implemented several programs and procedures to ensure that every employee is equipped with the knowledge and resources to establish and maintain a safe and healthy working environment.

  • Alcohol and Drug-Free Workplace Program
    Every employee participates in our Alcohol and Drug-Free Workplace program.
  • Training & Certification Programs
    All construction superintendents and project managers receive the receive OSHA training and an annual refresher course on various safety topics and company policies and procedures. The Safety Department also conducts frequent safety meetings on each of our projects addressing site specific issues. Certification programs include Excavation Competent Person, First Aid / CPR, and Fall Prevention & Protection Competent Person & Equipment Inspection training.
  • Subcontractor Compliance
    The belief in protecting employees also extends to subcontractors through training sessions on KVCC policies and procedures. Subcontractors are thoroughly evaluated, continuously monitored for safe practices, and carefully reviewed prior to signing contracts.
  • Jobsite Safety Inspections
    KVCC jobsites are inspected daily for traffic control, employee work practices and PPE usage by the Safety Director and an outside Safety Contractor to ensure the employees are following the company’s safety program. Also, safety department personnel conduct regular "Walkthroughs" on all jobsites.
  • Weekly Toolbox Talks
    The foreman and superintendents, along with our Safety Director, engage our employees in weekly safety meetings to review a new safety topic and review any incidents from the previous week.
