Health & Safety

CIMA's commitment to safety is of the utmost importance for all its employees. Our goal is to promote a safe work environment by developing positive safety attitudes throughout the workplace with all employees. A full-time Health and Safety Manager maintains training and inspection programs that cover all aspects of job performance in the field, at the CIMA facility, and in transport operations. We train our employees to always consider safety first, and this training is the vehicle that drives our everyday job performance. Safety is our number one value. All of the above and below is tracked and verified by an innovative fully integrated real time data system known as LOCSTATT who is partnered up HASC.

Education and Training

All field personnel receive safety training specific to their work environment. Additional training is specified for each job description which may include site specific orientations, Basic Plus, Occupational Safety, and Health Administration rules. Superintendents and Field Supervisors have additional training requirements including first aid and CPR, confined space, lifting and rigging, forklift and powered platform, PPE assessment, and hazard communication. Supervisors conduct daily job briefings that outline the activities for the day, completes JSAs for all anticipated hazards, equipment inspections, and methods used to work safely.

Safety Pre-planning

At CIMA, safety plans and practices are put into place well before the project begins. Prior to beginning work, our Safety Director and Project Manager prepare a site-specific health and safety plan for each project to account for the conditions and hazards present at each site for each individual project. Once the project begins, the Safety Director or his staff make frequent jobsite visits to monitor work in progress and consult with supervisors to further assess hazards and performance.

Drug-Free Workplace

Our goal is to ensure that every employee is provided a safe work environment. In order to deliver outstanding service to our customers, we must prevent injuries, property loss, and damage. With pre-employment drug testing and random testing of employees throughout the year, CIMA's zero tolerance policy offers the highest level of protection available against potential workplace safety liabilities.
