Safety and Quality
Safety is Everyone’s Business!
As a family business, City Masonry cares deeply about the health and well-being of our employees. These are our valued friends and colleagues as well as highly skilled craftsmen. Our concern extends to our clients, other contractors and the public. We also understand that the safety of our operations directly affects our clients’ costs. Our own insurance rates. And our reputation. That’s why our safety standards are among the most stringent in the industry.
Our commitment to safety and health begins at the top of the organization with a mandate from company president Paul McCurdy and continues throughout the company under the direction of our safety director, Glenn Whitehead, as part of our City Safe program. Through continuous training, job site audits, and weekly “Tool Box” meetings, management and employees work together to share the responsibility for safety and health.
Safety demands everyone’s focus and attention. We ask our clients to please understand our concerns and cooperate with our safety measures.
100% OSHA Compliance
City Masonry management and supervisors have received extensive training in CFR 1910 General Industry Standards and CFR 1926 Construction Industry Standards. Since we implemented our current safety program in 2007, our job sites have been 100% compliant on all OSHA inspections. We are committed to continued compliance with all government standards.
