Safety: Elevating The Standards
The William Charles organization is about people – they are at the heart of our corporate profile. We are committed to being the place where the best people want to work. To achieve that objective, one of our primary goals is employee safety.
Each person at the William Charles organization’s business units undergoes rigorous safety education and employee training developed by our professional Risk Management team.
Recently, William Charles enacted a WorkSafe program throughout all divisions, structured with ambitious and creative incentives designed to make employees keenly aware of safe work practices. The four-year plan includes development, execution, ownership and maintenance.
Among other objectives, we strive to promote wellness, avoid complacency, and promote our WorkStrong and WorkCrew programs. We also carefully screen potential employees to ensure they will be capable of performing required duties.
By elevating the standards for safety and providing our employees with the knowledge and resources to incorporate safety into their day-to-day work life, William Charles improves loss control and protects our people on every project we manage.
Since William Charles initiated WorkSafe, the results have been extremely encouraging, with overall OSHA incident rates down over 19 percent and lost day incidents down more than 50 percent. Our goal is nothing less than a totally safe environment with zero accidents or fatalities – anything less is just not acceptable.
