Safety Philosophy

LaCorte Companies strives for a zero incidence rate. Our philosophy is that all accidents are preventable and safety is the responsibility of every employee, all of the time. The employees of LaCorte Companies are our most valuable asset, and no aspect of business is given a greater priority than their personal safety. This conviction is reflected in our superb EMR rating, OSHA recordable rate and top-notch safety program.

Safety Program

The LaCorte Compaies Safety Program makes every effort to provide a secure environment for its employees and is fully compliant with all local, state, and federal safety requirements. The core components of our approach are:

  • Developing production procedures with safety as a focus
  • Code of safe practices and a written safety policy
  • Injury and illness prevention program
  • General and task-specific safety training – “Tool Box Talks”
  • Equipping employees with the proper tools for safe work practices
  • Regular inspections at the job site
  • Incentive program to foster a safety mindset in employees
  • Safety Culture
  • Respect for safety is evidenced at every level of our business. We employ a full-time safety administrator, who champions the program and is responsible for Safety & Loss Control. The division manager and project managers enforce the use of safety equipment and safe work practices on every job. Each foreman has the day-to-day responsibility of ensuring that the company’s Safety Program is carried out in the field, and every employee under his supervision is encouraged to make safety a personal priority. At LaCorte Companies, safety is more than a handbook: it’s a culture.
