Read more about the ADSC, the awards they provide, and how CNC Foundations achieved this safety recognition.
The ADSC is a nonprofit construction trade association partnered with the deep foundation industry. The ADSC focuses on the drilled shaft, anchored earth retention, and micropile technologies. Specialty subcontractors, civil and geotechnical engineers, and equipment suppliers make up the ADSC’s representation. The ADSC promotes developing technologies designed by its members to foster safe, quality, and ethical practices.
CNC Foundations earned the Zero Total Incidence Rate distinction. We recorded zero incidents during the 2020 calendar year while working more than 100,000 total hours.
The well-being of our employees on the worksite is a top priority at CNC Foundations. We understand a safe working environment directly impacts productivity, creates fewer interruptions, and reduces the project’s overall cost. We require that all of our employees receive certification from the following organizations:
Employees who work with the transportation of hazardous materials are required to be certified by HAZMAT. There are five stages of training before earning this certification:
This training introduces the employee to the basic requirements and helps them identify various hazardous materials.
This section provides a detailed explanation of requirements that the employee must carefully follow while on a job site.
Safety training explains the dangers associated with handling hazardous materials, the proper emergency responses, and practices to avoid accidents.
Security awareness addresses the security risks involved with transporting hazardous materials and how to respond to potential security threats.
The final training section outlines the proper security plans and overall structure of the company.
OSHA requires employers to provide training to their employees who face hazards on the job. They create training materials and distribute grants through authorized education centers. Some of the important topics discussed in OSHA training include:
Employers review accident prevention protocols, equipment inspection training, and how to identify hazardous working conditions.
Employers establish and supervise programs that promote the education and training of proper safety habits to employees.
Employers establish and review emergency plans with their employees.
MSHA certification provides proof of training with heavy machinery used in mining and construction. New employees must complete 24 hours of training in their first 90 days of employment. The certification course is designed in compliance with federal regulations and is an effective training tool. Some of the key topics covered include:
- How to recognize hazards
- Standard emergency procedures
- Health and safety
- First aid training
