Commitment to Safety
Lemoine’s Safety Mission: Send everyone home at the end of each day.
Safety is Lemoine’s first Core Value. The Lemoine Company is committed to a strong safety culture where measurable progress is made towards an injury‐free environment for everyone. We educate and train our people in all aspects of safety. We pledge to never compromise safety for the sake of schedule or cost.
LIFE®, Lemoine’s Injury Free Environment, ensures that safety is first in all that we do.
LIFE® requires a greater involvement in project‐site safety, from the boardroom to the field. We accomplish this by creating a greater awareness of the importance of safety through:
- planning, orientation and ongoing training
- establishing and adhering to employee hiring qualifiers
- providing a safe environment, equipment and protective gear
- maintaining a culture of personal accountability
- identifying appropriate performance metrics
- ensuring ongoing evaluation against benchmarks
Nothing is more important than ensuring the safety of our employees, clients, subcontractors, and the general public.
We are committed to providing an industry‐leading health, safety and environmental (HSE) program and the leadership necessary to foster a strong and encompassing safety culture throughout the organization. The promotion of LIFE® and HSE policies, practices, and initiatives is a primary objective of management and employees at all levels.
The Lemoine Company recognizes its safety responsibility and is committed as a Federal Contractor to comply with safety procedures as required by OSHA, the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Safety and Health Requirements Manual EM 385‐1‐1, and/or other Federal safety requirements as appropriate and/or applicable and limited to the Executive Agency with whom the Contract is executed and where work is performed.
Project specific safety planning is a fundamental component of Lemoine’s Preconstruction procedure. This planning process includes the on‐site Superintendent, Project Manager, Safety Manager and Foreman. Lemoine’s safety efforts are a continuous planning process and continue with daily pre‐task meetings and Job Site Analysis (JSA) which assist with the identification, assessment and elimination or control of potential hazards, in advance of the task.
In addition to promoting LIFE® and HSE at all levels of the organization, The Lemoine Company and its employees will adhere to all obligations and do all that is reasonable and practical to prevent personal injury and property damage and protect people from foreseeable work hazards.
Lemoine actively pursues excellence in Construction Safety maintaining an outstanding record which continuously surpasses national safety standards and meets Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) requirements to work in industrial facilities. Our organization has received multiple safety awards and recognition, including the prestigious Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) Diamond certification, the highest level achievable.
When incidents occur, we approach accountability in a way that benefits both the individual(s) and Lemoine as a whole. A thorough evaluation of the incident is completed and preventative measures are enacted to avoid similar safety incidents. The event is recorded and disseminated throughout our entire organization, aiding in our culture of constant communication and progressive efforts.
