High Standards of Safety

C-TEC Construction employs a full time dedicated safety director who ensures that each and every new hire, along with current employees, has up to date training.  Our safety director is in the field providing hands on training to ensure the highest degree of safety training is in place for the benefit of our clients as well of our employees.  The safety director also performs several safety audits every month to train, teach, and recognize risks. Protecting our crew and your facility is our highest priority.

We proudly announce that our 2013 American Shotcrete class we sponsored certified or recertified twelve “C-TEC Nozzlemen”.

Our 2014 Leadership training for our field supervisors and leaders provided updated training in safety, management, quality control, equipment, and communication.

Welding – Employees learn the skilled work in the use of electric and acetylene welding equipment, utilizing welding equipment to cut or join metal parts with considerable independence in accordance with standard practices of the trade. Welding training and field practices follow OSHA standards 1910 Subpart O.

Forklift Training – Employees learn to safely manage and operate forklifts, protecting operators and other employees working in the vicinity. Training covers the operator’s competence, knowledge of forklift capacity, characteristics of a load, condition of a forklift and area of operation.

Areal Lift – Training covers the purpose and use of equipment manuals, pre-use inspection, identifying malfunctions in equipment, factors affecting stability, purpose of placards and decals, worksite inspection and barricades, applicable safety rules and regulations, proper use of personal fall protection equipment and hands-on operation.

Rigging Safety Training – Our employees are trained to determine task and job-site requirements, characterize the load, specify, select and inspect rigging equipment (wire rope slings, synthetic slings, hooks, shackles, eye bolts, hoist rings, and turn buckles). They know when and how to use rope in rigging applications, and can lift, maneuver and move symmetrical or asymmetrical loads through a variety of openings by upending, inverting, or rolling loads when necessary.

Material Safety Data Sheet – Employees are prepared for each site with a detailed description of each hazardous material listed on the materials inventory.

Lockout/Tagout – There are three types of employees that receive training: authorized, affected, and other. The amount and type of training that each employee receives is based upon the relationship of that employee’s job to the machine or equipment being locked or tagged out and upon the degree of knowledge relevant to hazardous energy that the employee will encounter.

Personal Protective Equipment – Employees learn about the specialized clothing or equipment worn by employees for protection against health and safety hazards. Personal protective equipment is designed to protect many parts of the body, eyes, face, hands feet and ears.

First Aide/CPR – Employees learn to recognize and respond appropriately to cardiac and breathing emergencies, and to recognize and care for a variety of first aid emergencies such as burns, cuts, scrapes, sudden illnesses, head, neck, and back injuries, and heat and cold emergencies. They also learn how blood-borne pathogens are spread, how to avoid exposure and what to do if exposed to infectious material.

Fall Protection – Employees learn a series of reasonable steps taken to eliminate or control the injurious effects of an unintentional fall while accessing or working at height. Additional course objectives are learning how to inspect and wear personal fall arrest system equipment (PFAS), and knowing the requirements for anchorage points and how to tie off to them.
