Safety
Every Employee is a Safety Professional

Buffalo Gap Instrumentation & Electrical Co., Inc. strives to make employee safety our number one goal on any project. We carry a genuine care and concern for the everyday safety, health, and well-being of our employees, customers and the public. We believe that safe and professional employees are our biggest asset. Therefore, we expect all employees to assist in maintaining a work environment that is free from the use and effects of alcohol and prohibited drugs and to maintain a responsible and professional work ethic.

BGI&E has many programs to keep safety in the forefront of every operation and task. BGI&E has developed an interactive safety orientation to convey company policies and procedures along with an employee safety handbook composed to direct and control the activities of all employees in order to prevent injuries, accidents, fires, and explosions. BGI&E implements a short service employee mentor program, including trade skills, safety awareness and responsibility. BGI&E believes formal safety training is important to the successful protection of people and other valuable assets.

Using the OSHA Outreach Institute as well as other nationally recognized curriculum, all employees attend annual educational and development training. BGI&E promotes continuous education programs through daily safety meetings, jobsite safety assistant programs and thorough Job Safety Analysis.

Management also holds additional sessions with supervision on a regular basis in order to build professional responsibility and a high level of communication. This communication leads to safety awareness with all of our employees, regardless of when and where they are currently working. BGI&E employees, the superintendents, and the managers work together as a team to ensure safety is part of the job.
 

"Every Employee is a Safety Professional”, the motto of our workforce is the key belief that has allowed BGI&E to maintain such an outstanding working record with over 4 million hours worked without lost time incident over the last 6 years. (as of June 2011).

 
Safety professionalism on jobsites, as well as the support from management, led to Buffalo Gap I&E being selected as the 1st Place Winner of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) National Construction Safety Excellence Award.
