Safety is a core value at ICI. We cultivate a culture that emphasizes safety above all else. Our commitment to safety begins with our executive leadership and our success is the result of daily attention to detail by every employee on every project.
Key components of our safety program include training, support, empowerment and action. ICI provides monthly, quarterly and yearly safety training programs available to all our employees. The support of our executive leadership ensures that every employee feels empowered to take the actions necessary to create safe conditions on their job site.
Pre-planning for safety is a major component of our program. A project specific safety plan is developed and communicated to our subcontractors. Teamwork is essential to creating a culture of safety and we integrate our subcontracts into that team. The safety plan addresses the roles and responsibilities of each Team Member, Competent Person requirements, Employee Training and Certification, Job Hazard Analysis and Pre-Task Planning requirements and a Disruption Avoidance Plan. ICI also employs third-party consultants to monitor and report on our project sites on a monthly basis.
COVID-19 Pandemic Safety Plan
As COVID-19 began to spread throughout the US, ICI acted quickly to put together a Pandemic Plan and an Exposure Plan. These plans focus on guidelines published by the CDC, OSHA and Public Health Departments in the areas where we work with the purpose of providing awareness and protocols to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Key aspects include:
All Field Team Members are required to complete Safety Awareness Courses devoted to Infection Control and the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Awareness and Prevention Tactics include posting signage at our gates and throughout the jobsite covering protocols put in place to reduce and prevent the spread of COVID-19 such as requiring masks, social distancing, regular hand-washing and sanitizing, and thorough disinfection of commonly touched surfaces and high traffic areas.
Individuals are reminded to take their temperature before coming to work each day and to stay home if they feel sick.
Hand washing stations were installed throughout the jobsite to allow for easy access.
High visibility hard hat decals and t-shirts were distributed to all jobsite workers to create a wearable, visual reminder to “Stay 6 Feet Away.”
These protocols are required to be adhered to everyday by every person on the jobsite and are discussed weekly at our Project Coordination Meetings.
