Job Details

We learned a long time ago that if you take care of your people…your people will take care of your business. That is why we have established an award winning safety program that puts the health and well-being of our employees at the forefront. To help workers integrate safety into their daily activities we use innovative techniques such as:

  • Evolving the Job Safety Analysis process to a “Same Page Plan”

  • Storing Personal Protective Equipment on portable power tools to ease its use

  • Turning an incident into a learning moment with the Bratney Safety Alert system

  • Holding “lunch & learn” sessions where safety history and philosophy are discussed to promote personal safety program growth

In addition to these techniques, Bratney Companies dedicates tremendous resources to the training and education of its employees and sub-contractors. We offer professional development training and our Corporate Safety Manager often holds train-the-trainer courses to expand employee knowledge.
