Safety—a Business Deliverable

Safety is not just a belief for UBC Millwrights and our contractors. Or even part of the task list. It’s the overriding principle for accomplishing our work.

In fact, UBC Millwrights regard safety as an equal deliverable with cost and scheduling.

Our goal is developing a safety partnership with owners to protect our greatest asset and the owner’s investment.

Our objective is to remove job site injuries, work stoppages and higher project costs due to illness or accidents, worker disabilities and workers’ compensation claims, and death.

UBC standards on job site safety include:

  • instilling a core value of safe work by everyone, from apprentices to superintendents, via continuous training
  • teaming with GCs, PMs, specifiers and owners on a project’s safety program to identify, assess, monitor, manage and eliminate risks
  • consistent safety-related communications among all stakeholders prior to and throughout the project’s life cycle
  • meeting and exceeding the highest level of OSHA and other industry safety standards
Millwrights at Work
  • reinforcing zero-tolerance from our millwrights regarding safety infractions and near-misses
  • ensuring that the level of safety training meets and exceeds the level of inherent risk factors

We accomplish these standards through aggressive leadership, a conviction to a safety-conscious job site environment, and the determination to achieve zero accidents.

Adherence to safe work does not change because of accelerated schedules, change orders, or difficult working conditions. Instead, it becomes an even more important factor. We strive to remove the potential for unsafe acts and unsafe conditions at all times.
