Safety

Looking Out for Each Other

accident-free-logoAs a family-owned company, it is our job to make sure that anyone who sets foot on a Korsmo job site returns home to their family safely. Our experienced Safety Team is committed to proactive planning, eliminating all potentially unsafe situations before a project breaks ground. Korsmo continually invests time and resources in proper training for all field personnel, including assisting with proper qualifications and certifications for subcontractors. Strong communication and continuous monitoring are cornerstones of our safety success, and help ensure that we complete each job accident-free.

Instead of relying solely on a “top-down” approach, we have worked hard to instill a positive attitude toward job site safety in every Korsmo team member. Whether a new employee, subcontractor or experienced carpenter, we empower and expect all team members to take initiative by fixing potential hazards before an accident occurs. This has resulted in strong relationships among crews and a genuine concern at the individual level for the safety of all workers, project owners and members of the public.

Our company-wide Safety and Accident Prevention Program includes:

  • Zero tolerance for serious safety violations: immediate removal from the project
  • Weekly visits by Site Safety Manager with detailed audits
  • Mandatory Job Hazard Analysis for all tasks
  • Ongoing and pre-task training for safety procedures and regulations
  • In-house incentive program that rewards employees for the number of safe hours accumulated
  • Safety orientations conducted prior to anyone beginning work on site
  • Daily “Stretch and Flex” program to prevent strains and sprains
  • Drug Testing Program
  • DOSH and OSHA code compliance
  • Daily job site cleaning

We have particularly benefited from their approach in facing the challenges associated with maintaining safety and preservation of the gaming operation during on site construction in areas within close proximity to our current gaming operation, minimizing impacts and disruptions.
