This orientation consists of not only Scaffold and Fall Protection Safety but, it represents how we work as a company with an emphasis on the OSHA Fatal Four hazard elimination. At Scaffold Resource, all employees have the authority and obligation to stop work if any unsafe conditions exist or unsafe acts occur! The message we deliver to every employee is that “Safety is the Most Important Part of Our Jobs”, which is not just a company motto but it is the roots on which our company is built. Our “See It, Stop It, and Correct It best practice philosophy is pushed from the top down to our field and facilities staff members.
