Safety is everyone’s responsibility

GDA Contractors takes great pride in the depth of our safety and training programs. It starts with prioritization by leadership and is the responsibility of every employee at GDA Contractors.

And this isn’t lip service – we employ three full-time safety and quality control coordinators who manage our daily safety and training needs for our field operations. Some of our safety team’s qualifications include an OSHA 500 Outreach Trainer, Authorized User & Competent Person Fall Protection Trainers, Authorized User & Competent Person Scaffolding Trainers, First Aid & CPR Authorized Trainers, and a Qualified IPAF Aerial Lift Instructor with an AWPT Approved Training Center. At a minimum, all of our field employees are OSHA 10-Hour trained, while our Foremen are required to obtain an OSHA 30-Hour training. Numerous other field employees are additionally trained by third-party instructors for other special safety and access considerations.

Our group of companies hold weekly safety meetings at each of our locations. These weekly “toolbox talks” align with pertinent safety communications from the week and foster an open forum to “hear the voice” from our field staff. During our weekly safety meetings, our field staff are rewarded for the recognition and reporting of jobsite safety hazards. Additionally, the company has an annual Safety Rewards Program that recognizes employees for safety excellence.
