Hill York Professionals Earn OSHA 30 Certification
September 6, 2016
Hill York continued its rise as a jobsite safety leader by recently completing training to obtain the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s 30-hour certification for construction management professionals. The online course was taken by 26 members of the Hill York team, including foremen, project and service managers, superintendents, owners, and vice presidents.
“By going through this training, Hill York has fortified its commitment to maintaining safe work environments,” said Luis Moreno, Hill York Safety Director. “OSHA 30 certification is another tool that helps us field an educated staff that’s proactive in its approach to putting on-the-job safety first.”
The OSHA 30-hour course is a comprehensive program designed for safety and managerial personnel in the general industry and construction trade. The program recognizes companies that correct hazards, develop and implement effective programs, and become self-sufficient in managing occupational safety and health. Course topics include scaffolding, cranes and rigging, and excavation.
“From a culture standpoint, this is another tangible reflection of who we are and how we go about our work,” Moreno pointed out. “Hill York’s #SafetyCHAMP program has achieved exceptional results in preventing accidents and injuries. Having an OSHA-educated team makes us even stronger in our daily mission to get everyone home safe.”
Since its start up in 2014, the #SafetyCHAMP program has driven steady improvement in reducing the number of injuries and time lost by Hill York employees. Earlier this year, the company was recognized by the Associated General Contractors of America’s East Coast Chapter with a Safety Award of Excellence.
