Comprehensive Safety Program
A comprehensive safety program is the best insurance employees have to avoid injuries. At Korellis, we have safety regulations in place that meet or exceed roofing industry standards. Every attempt is made to provide equipment and maintain job site conditions that ensure a safe work environment for our employees and the customers we serve.
Safety training is ongoing at Korellis. Mandatory monthly meetings for all employees give us the opportunity to address current job hazards and concerns and other pertinent safety topics. Every year we hold a “Safety Fest” ~ a full day safety training seminar with instructors who present a variety of safety topics including material handling, working with hot asphalt, fire fighting, proper use of personal fall prevention systems and more.
Our safety program includes a full-time safety manager; monthly company-wide safety meetings; weekly job-site tool box talks; and training to keep up to date on OSHA requirements.
Drug Free Workplace
Korellis takes pride in the fact that all of our employees are professional and drug free.
We have a drug testing program in place in conjunction with the BCRC (Building Construction Resource Center), a labor/management administrator of random testing programs. All job applicants are drug tested before their first day of work. Afterwards, the random program tests all employees, even the President of the company.
Roofing is a dangerous business. The consequences of drug abuse can be tragic not only for users and their families, but also for co-workers and customers who are put in jeopardy by others’ illicit use of drugs.
Korellis has a commitment to all their employees, including the vast majority who are not and will not become drug abusers. We believe that we not only have a right to strive to maintain a workplace free from drug abuse, we have a duty to do so.
A good drug-free workplace program can lead to:
