MJ Mechanical Continues to Strive For Success
MJ Mechanical Services, Inc. strives for an accident-free environment. Excellence in safety is critical to protect our most valuable resources – our team members. MJ strives to maintain a safety and health program conforming with the best-proven practices of organizations in business today. Our program embodies the proper attitude toward injury and illness control on the part of every employee and requires cooperation in all safety and health matters. Only through such a cooperative effort can a safety record in the best interest of all be established and preserved.
The objective at MJ Mechanical Services, Inc. is a safety and health program that will minimize and control the number of disabling injuries and illnesses, not merely in keeping with, but surpassing, the best experience of other operations similar to ours. Our goal is to become a leader in the control of losses to match their record and reputation in the mechanical contracting and servicing industry.
Safety, quality, and production are equal partners in the work process. To be successful a company has to achieve all three and …“Attitude”… is the key element that drives successful achievement. It’s a positive attitude that promotes good behavior – safe behavior, productive behavior and quality work. Superior attitudes produce superior performance and poor attitudes produce failure. It’s all about attitude – your attitude towards safety, your attitude towards getting the job done and your attitude towards quality.
Supervisors are Key to MJ’s Safety Success
The supervisor is, among other things, a funnel, directing all our material and information to the employee. Everything that motivates employees is applied by the supervisor, and obviously this role is critical. The supervisor, of course, must be motivated, and must share the company’s goals if we are to achieve success.
Supervisors are responsible for developing and maintaining a constant safety climate in the work area. By fostering a safety-oriented attitude in all employees, we increase the potential for them to work safely both as individuals and as a group.
Only through supervisory leadership can we prevent accidents directly (e.g. by correcting hazards on job site and enforcing safety policies).
An effective Safety training program does more than just transfer knowledge and skill, it inspires people to apply and practice what they have learned “… to walk the talk and do the next right thing.
Important aspects of our Safety Program
- All field employees have at a minimum their OSHA 10hr. training
- Supervisors are 30hr. OSHA trained
- Substance Abuse Program in place
- Monthly Safety Training for field personnel
- Formal Written Safety Program
- Safety Committee –Members represent each department including top management.
Safety training is not just directed towards our field personnel. It also includes top management, project managers, sales representatives and office personnel. The goal is to keep everyone abreast of the rules and regulations.
Rules and regulations do not effectively prevent accidents, people do.
Safety is a people business. This is why the MJ Mechanical safety process is a people based program that looks at what produces safe behaviors and eliminates unsafe acts.
