As a family oriented company, Southeast Cherokee Construction, Inc. (SCC) instills a set of values in each employee. Those values center around safety which will allow everyone to return home safely. We teach safety to be instinctive rather than reactive. Our goal is zero injuries. We have been a zero lost time accident company since 2005, and we take pride in that!
Safety for each project begins before the first shovel hits the ground and ends after the last paper is filed. We are able to accomplish this by a series of preplanned activities which includes all necessary AHA/JSA for each task, continued training, preparatory meetings, toolbox talks, and an open door policy to all employees.
SCC is committed to providing a safe and healthful work environment for all employees and others that may work, visit, or enter our grounds, facilities, and businesses. It is our policy that we and our subcontractors manage and conduct our business in a manner that offers maximum protection to each employee and any other persons that may be affected by our operations. It is our absolute conviction that we have the responsibility to provide a safe and healthful work environment for our entire staff. SCC will make every effort to provide a working environment that is free from any recognizable or potential hazards.
We at SCC recognize that the success of our safety and health program is contingent and dependent upon support from the executive levels of management as well as involvement of all of our employees and subcontractors. This company is committed to allocating and providing the resources needed to promote and effectively implement the Safety and Accident Prevention Program. This company has established avenues to solicit and receive comments, information, and assistance from employees where safety is concerned and will act appropriately upon the information received. SCC is responsible for and will make every effort to comply with all safety and health regulations established by federal, state, and other local regulatory agencies. Management and all supervisors of this company will lead by example, reflecting the established commitment to safety and health within this company.
