Our Commitment to Safety
With a workforce of nearly 100 highly trained and dedicated craftsmen, project safety is a fundamental business principle for all historic building restoration services. During a restoration project, we have the responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone on the job site. This includes our clients, employees, subcontractors, suppliers, and the public.
Each project begins with a hazard assessment review performed by the Project Manager and is reviewed regularly throughout the project.
Our exemplary safety record is largely credited to our comprehensive Safety and Hazard Communications Program designed to educate and train our employees on the many aspects of project safety. Our partnership with Road to Safety Consultants enables us to remain compliant and minimize health, safety and environmental incidents.
We Work with Safety Experts
Restoration of any occupied structure, especially an historic one, is not achieved without planning, teamwork and constant attention to detail. Likewise, the welfare and safety of the building’s occupants, pedestrian traffic, and our skilled craftsmen begin long before we begin work on a project.
Our company hired independent consultant Road to Safety, which works specifically with all of our projects. The consultants make unannounced site inspections for infractions, conducts safety seminars for the employees and makes suggestions to the Project Manager for future safety issues. Midwest Maintenance Inc. currently has a signed contract for this firm that expands their focus to oversee all site-related safety issues for all our projects in all states in which we are licensed.
Safety Training for Our Employees
Every two years, our company brings all the employees from all states for a week-long safety intervention. We bring multiple companies, including Dayton Power and Light and American Scaffolding, to show demonstrations. Road to Safety comes in along with the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation to educate the employees on all aspects of construction safety. On the off years, we have two-day safety interventions using Road to Safety and The Ohio BWC for safety education.
Our company has strong roots in sharing all the education that is out there for our employees. Each year, the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation has the Ohio Safety Congress & Expo held in Columbus. This Congress offers strategies and tools essential for a healthy productive workforce. Our company also registers for this safety informative event to benefit our organization.
