  • Safety - A Business Deliverable

    Safety is not just a belief for UBC Millwrights and our contractors. Or even part of the task list. It’s the overriding principle for accomplishing our work.

    In fact, UBC Millwrights regard safety as an equal deliverable with cost and scheduling.

    Our goal is developing a safety partnership with owners to protect our greatest asset and the owner’s investment.

    Our objective is to remove job site injuries, work stoppages and higher project costs due to illness or accidents, worker disabilities and workers’ compensation claims, and death.

    UBC standards on job site safety include:

    • instilling a core value of safe work by everyone, from apprentices to superintendents, via continuous training
    • teaming with GCs, PMs, specifiers and owners on a project’s safety program to identify, assess, monitor, manage and eliminate risks
    • consistent safety-related communications among all stakeholders prior to and throughout the project’s life cycle
    • meeting and exceeding the highest level of OSHA and other industry safety standards
    • reinforcing zero-tolerance from our millwrights regarding safety infractions and near-misses
    • ensuring that the level of safety training meets and exceeds the level of inherent risk factors

    We accomplish these standards through aggressive leadership, a conviction to a safety-conscious job site environment, and the determination to achieve zero accidents.

    Adherence to safe work does not change because of accelerated schedules, change orders, or difficult working conditions. Instead, it becomes an even more important factor. We strive to remove the potential for unsafe acts and unsafe conditions at all times.

    Our difference is our training

    UBC Millwrights are trained to work and support an injury- and accident-free job site through attentiveness and continuous improvement in safety measures. Safety training starts on the first day of apprenticeship—and we reinforce safety throughout the millwright’s career.

    UBC Millwrights acquire the skills, knowledge and preparation to be safe workers by focusing on:

    • personal accountability—especially when no one is watching
    • responsibility to others
    • understanding the owner’s safety expectations of the project
    • identifying and calling attention to unique hazardous or unsafe factors
    • safe performance
    • safe behavior in and around the hot work areas
    • safe task completion
