Working on a construction site and in the utility contractor Tulsa market, our employees are constantly working in and around heavy objects. It is just a fact of life that at some point something will be dropped or will slip out of your grip or an accident could take place at that could cause extensive damage to the toes and feet if the proper protective equipment is not being used.

The next example of how GEI Utility construction is changing the utility contractor Tulsa market by upping the ante with its dedication to safety is by our weekly safety meeting is conducted every Monday morning at our main office. The safety meetings are a great opportunity to discuss a safety topic that will be focused on for the week, look back at the previous week and make any adjustments or announcements in regards to our safety program that may be necessary, and to discuss near misses. The first two of these are items which are discussed every week in the Weekly safety meeting are fairly self-explanatory. Each week topic is discussed that is pertinent to the work being done on a daily basis. Articles are cited statistics are red so that employees know to take this very seriously. Next is a weekly recap of the previous week. Any safety issues that may have a rose in our discussed as well as a recap of what happened in our company over the previous week. The third item discussed a great links and every weekly safety meeting Are near misses. Near misses could very possibly be the most important part of our weekly safety meetings. These vital portions of our safety meetings are what helps to keep our company culture a culture which relies on and teaches safety over everything else. I near miss is in its simplest terms, when in employee says wow that was close, or that could’ve been bad. Usually Statement like this are made when an accident was very close to happening but did not for one reason or another sometimes as simple as luck. These are some of the most important teaching moments for a safety program. For example if an employee is working on a piece of equipment and notices that a safety hazard was narrowly avoided, there is a very good chance we will be doing the exact same activity in the days months and years to come. If a different statement like this are made when an accident was very close to happening but did not for one reason or another sometimes as simple as luck. These are some of the most important teaching moments for a safety program. For example if an employee is working on a piece of equipment and notices that a safety hazard was narrowly avoided, there is a very good chance we will be doing the exact same activity in the days months and years to come. If a different employee is performing the same task that was not aware of a hazard the outcome could be much much different. This is why we discussed near misses on a weekly basis. So that employees performing is the same or similar tasks are aware of any and all known hazards before beginning. Even though employee a BCDEFG etc. we’re lucky employees he may not be so lucky and the near miss could very easily turn in to an injury or even a fatality. This is why near misses are so important Especially in regard to the Utility Contractor Tulsa industry.
