Health & Safety
Health & Safety is the most important part of every project. Our programs are designed to promote a culture of ZERO At Risk Behavior.
The Importance of Health & Safety
Sevenson recognizes the fundamental importance of safety and health to company operations, employees, onsite personnel, clients, local communities, and the environment. To maintain the highest safety standards, Sevenson implements a behavior-based safety system known as a Job Safety Enhancement Program (JSEP). The three keys to a successful JSEP are education, identification, and participation. JSEP incorporates proven procedures for integrating safety into every facet of Sevenson's operations. To effectively manage safety and health issues associated with site activities, a site-specific Health and Safety Plan (HASP) is prepared by Sevenson's Director of Health and Safety, Paul Jung, CIH, CSP. The HASPs are administered and implemented by Sevenson's experienced site safety and health officers, and enforced by the site superintendent.
