Yannuzzi Group provides the highest level of safety on all demolition projects Yannuzzi Demolition Services is commited to providing a safe work environement

Commitment to Safety

Yannuzzi is committed to providing the highest level of safety standards across all of our projects. We promote safe work practices through a combination of continuing education, training, and strict enforcement of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety guidelines.

Our Commitment to Safety:

Before every shift, we have a project and safety meeting at each of our worksites and our recycling center. We know it is important to constantly remind our employees about safe procedures, and to keep them informed about the work that will be going on each day. By ensuring that safety guidelines are followed at all times, we are able to create a predictable, safe working environment that is the cornerstone to our Safety Program.

Our employees are constantly trained in jobsite safety procedures, including the proper use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), equipment safety, restricted areas, clean working environments, energy safety and fall protection. Our employees are trained and encouraged to speak out and resolve safety issues as soon as they arise.

Yannuzzi corporate Safety Officer Bob Anderson is personally committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of everyone on the Yannuzzi team. Bob holds an OSHA 40-hour certification and current Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard (HAZWOPER) certification. Every day Bob comes to the job with the drive to ensure that we all have safety at the top of our minds while on the construction site.

AN OPEN LETTER ON SAFETY IN THE DEMOLITION AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

The Yannuzzi Group of companies has been performing work on the East Coast since 1929. Throughout our eighty-seven years of experience we have remained committed to the welfare and wellbeing of everyone in our company and in the larger community.

Demolition Contractors are not known for surviving this long in an industry that is plagued with injuries. The Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is a tool that the workman’s compensation insurance industry uses to gauge the past safety record of an employer and determine future risk. The OSHA 300 log of work-related injuries and illnesses is utilized to determine the EMR. Ratings lower than 1.0 indicate a safer working environment than the average in the industry.

The Yannuzzi Group’s rigorous safety programs, training and well maintained equipment have yielded an excellent Experience Modification Rate (EMR) of 0.667. Our consistently low rating proves that Yannuzzi’s safety record is significantly better than the industry average, solidifying our position as a leader in jobsite safety.

We are committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment by consistently enforcing our comprehensive Safety Program at all times – no excuses. A top priority for the Yannuzzi Group is to continually refine and improve our Safety Program far beyond industry norms so that we can maintain our status as an ideal employer and trusted contractor in the construction industry.

One of the ways in which we accomplish this goal is by distributing state-of-the-art safety equipment and training to our employees. Yannuzzi’s commitment to our employees means that we must go above and beyond to provide a safe working environment. We exceed OSHA requirements for employee exposure monitoring and make certain that no one is overlooked. We keep abreast of industry standards and strive to go beyond those requirements.

At Yannuzzi, we believe strongly that safety is everyone’s job. We will continue to encourage our employees to immediately recognize and correct any safety issue, and to bring issues that they cannot resolve themselves to the attention of the Site Safety Officer.

Construction and demolition sites can be dangerous, but the hazards can be mitigated by following proper safety procedures. No construction site should ever be chaotic – our jobsites are noted for their coordination, orderliness and teamwork under strict supervision of trained onsite foremen. Proper adherence to safety measures reduces risks and ensures a predictable, safe working environment so that our employees can go home to their families at the end of the day, safe and sound.
