Our Safety Policies
The Berg Corporation has developed and implemented one of the most ambitious safety and employee training programs in the Demolition Industry.
Initiative is structured into five elements:
Recruitment / Hiring Practices
Stringent interviews, business references, thorough background checks, pre-employment physicals and drug/alcohol screening are utilized to ensure we hire candidate of character.
Ongoing Training and Development
Prior to working in the field, all new hires receive demolition specific onboard training for their protection and quality control. Immediately upon reporting to field operations, employees begin an ongoing training progression that spans laborer through superintendent.
Each new employee is assigned a mentor immediately upon reaching their first assignment. The mentor, typically a foreman, superintendent, or a handpicked individual, is proficient in a particular task. Mentoring to focus on safe and efficient work practices.
Daily Documented Safety Inspections
Utilizing the KPA EHS Management site superintendents conduct daily documented site safety audits. This is augmented with unannounced audits performed by our chief of safety and general superintendents.
Berg senior management is hands on and engaged. They frequently visit our sites and communicate on a continuum with field personnel.
