“At Monarch Welding & Engineering, safety is a core competency that protects our employees and allows us to provide efficient service."
Safety As A Core Value
At Monarch Welding & Engineering, safety is a core value and necessary for our long-term success. A safe environment not only ensures quality of life but also drives project efficiency. We take an active role in partnering with local trades to provide apprentice training, journeyman upgrade training, and onsite lessons.
Everyone is responsible for staying safe! To achieve “Zero Accidents,” we implement a behavior-based safety program. It measures risk associated with actions through real-time observations. Typical safety programs are reactionary, developing a corrective action after an accident occurs. We take pride in our continued effort to achieve a high level of safety performance by being proactive. These efforts require clear communication, supported by OSHA training programs.
All superintendents are OSHA 30-hour trained.
We participate with several third-party contractors and supplier management firms. They ensure we are compliant with a wide variety of industries and Owner specific safety requirements. We are proud to publish our 3-Year Average EMR rate of .67!
We have developed and continue to update our Safety Manual. It identifies procedures and safe work practices meeting or exceeding MIOSHA and OSHA standards. Maintaining our proactive Safety Program takes effort, training, and discipline. We have outlined a process to help facilitate safety.
Before Starting A Project
A Pre-Job Line-Up Meeting and any job-specific training is performed with all affected employees.
Before Each Shift
During The Work
All full-time employees participate in a company-wide safety meeting. We discuss safety performance, upcoming expectations and lessons learned to reaffirm safety expectations.
Monarch Welding & Engineering employs professional engineers to organize, design, and monitor critical rigging, lifting devices and lift plans. We often also utilize professional engineers to design personnel tie-off attachments and ventilation systems to help mitigate potential hazards.
