Safety is everyone’s responsibility

GDA Contractors takes great pride in the depth of our safety and training programs. It starts with prioritization by leadership and is the responsibility of every employee at GDA Contractors.

And this isn’t lip service – We employ a full-time Safety and Quality Control Manager along with five coordinators who handle the daily safety and training requirements for our field operations. Some of our safety team’s qualifications include an OSHA 500 Outreach Trainer, Authorized User & Competent Person Fall Protection Trainers, Authorized User & Competent Person Scaffolding Trainers, and First Aid & CPR Authorized Trainers. At a minimum, all our field employees are OSHA 10-Hour trained, while our Foremen are required to obtain an OSHA 30-Hour training. Numerous other field employees are additionally trained by third-party instructors for other special safety and access considerations.

Our group of companies hold weekly safety meetings at each of our locations. These weekly “Toolbox Talks” align with pertinent safety communications from the week and foster an open forum to “hear the voice” from our field staff. During our weekly safety meetings, our field staff are rewarded for the recognition and reporting of jobsite safety hazards. Additionally, the company has a quarterly Safety Rewards Program that recognizes employees for safety excellence.

Our largest liability on any project is water intrusion. I trust GDA Contractors to provide accurate fair pricing and perform the work correctly every time. Using a quality contractor like GDA provides me a peace of mind on every project they are a part of.
