SteelFab's Commitment to Safety
SteelFab, Inc. is committed to provide a Safe and Healthy workplace for all of our valued employees.
Our driving force is two-fold; 1. Working Safe is a Condition of Employment, and 2. We must be each other's keeper. Our belief is that we are morally, legally, and ethically obligated to care for each other, to care for ourselves, and to care for our families, both personal and professional, here at work, and as well at home. To be successful in this endeavor, we have learned to "lock arms instead of horns" to facilitate trust between employees and management thus changing our culture to a non-adversarial work environment.
We strive to insure that our training programs meet, and in most cases, exceed all local, state and federal safety guidelines, standards, and rules which have been promulgated since the 1970 OSH ACT. SteelFab, Inc. has a full time Corporate Safety Department which provides the best training available, i.e. Lockout/Tagout, Haz-Com, Overhead Cranes & Hoists, Forklifts, etc., for our employees. The Safety Department also makes unannounced "mock OSHA" inspections of our Charlotte facility as well as our affiliate shops. During jobsite construction activities SteelFab, Inc.'s Corporate Safety Director is often observed walking/inspecting the iron worker's activities to insure that we are "doing the right thing" in regard to OSHA and General Contractor's Safety Requirements.
The SteelFab, Inc. Quality Policy is to provide its customers with a structural steel product that has been fabricated and coated in accordance with the quality requirements, applicable codes and building standards specified in the contract documents.
SteelFab, Inc. is committed to continually improve procedures, practices and the value of our service to our customers and the construction industry.
