Select demolition and environmentally impactive construction projects may present serious legal, regulatory, and liability roadblocks. At EDG, we pride ourselves on our strict adherence to industry, government, and corporate safety standards resulting in our ability to provide genuine peace of mind for our clients.
We ensure that all work is performed in accordance with OSHA, EPA, federal, state and local regulations along with our client’s corporate requirement standards.To that end, Environmental Demolition Group has developed an extensive safety program outlined below.
All employees of Environmental Demolition Group, without exception, undergo 40 hours of HAZWOPER training. HAZWOPER stands for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response. This means all of our employees know how to handle hazardous materials properly, using the right protective equipment, following proper procedures and protocols, and knowing how to respond in case of an emergency.
Our emergency response includes personnel trained in fire protection, CPR, first aid, and bloodborne pathogen handling.
All of our personnel are trained in accordance with OSHA, EPA, and HUD standards. These federal standards are particularly important for government buildings, educational institutions, military bases, and sites with hazardous materials.
Teams conduct daily safety meetings on each job site. We talk about what we’re doing for the day’s tasks, any issues we may encounter, anything that happened the day before, and make sure everyone has the correct personal protective equipment (PPE). Each foreman has a checklist to review before we lift a single piece of debris or tool on that particular day.
