SAFETY IS NO ACCIDENT
Globally, the construction industry is recognized as one of the most hazardous work environments. The goal is to conduct operations without harming those directly and indirectly involved with its activities. 1888 Industrial Services implemented a strategic plan that aimed to deliver a consistent zero recordable incident performance and a global lost time accident rate of zero per million man hours.
To achieve our safety goals, we adopted rigorous safety standards, requiring all new hires to go through safety training, delivering weekly safety classroom training and education to both employees and contractors, and incorporating safety into the production process.
As part of our construction management services, we provide our clients with our Zero Accident Program (ZAP) brand of safety.
Our commitment to ZAP is unmatched in the construction industry, going far beyond the standard safety program. It is not just the right choice; it’s the only choice.
It is a way of life and culture, which values the worth and total well-being of all individuals on our job site, and extends to their families. We believe that with this approach, we can positively influence everyone associated with 1888 Industrial Services.
SOME KEY COMPONENTS OF ZAP INCLUDE:
- Employee orientation
- Drug testing
- Job hazard analysis
- Hot work permit procedures
- Confined space permit procedure
- Project analysis
- Evacuation planning and drills
- Highly developed training program
- Safety inspections, interviews and audits
- Environmental monitoring
WE STRIVE TO SET THE STANDARD FOR SAFETY
At 1888, we begin every workday with tailgate safety talks and reviewing “near miss” scenarios, and every supervisory meeting begins with discussing the Job Safety Analysis (JSA) form—the blueprint to jobsite safety. We have developed extensive safety programs that produce results and have contributed to Zero Lost-Time (ZLT) Injuries at our jobsites.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO THE FOLLOWING:
- Conducting all of our activities in a manner that accounts for the impact to the safety and health of our workforce and communities.

- Alerting affected individuals and authorities of any safety and health incidents in a timely and effective manner. Thorough investigations will be conducted, and corrective and preventative actions shall be implemented and monitored.
- Having Senior Management maintain and periodically review the implementation of the safety and health policy.
