Expect The Best

Safety Training

Safety is no Accident

Maintaining our high safety standards requires on-going communication, education, and follow-through. Baker Group recognizes that it is our obligation to train our team and to offer safety training to our clients. We believe that working safely is a process that needs to be defined, developed, and coached. Our team is focused on recognizing unsafe work practices and potential hazards, and encouraged to eliminate or control hazards. Safety best practices should be second nature on and off the jobsite.

Baker Group's safety training is conducted in accordance with appropriate federal, state and local regulations. We constantly update our safety practices to reflect changes in our industry. We require all team members to meet and exceed OSHA compliance. Baker Group offers team safety training in:

In addition to offering formal training, weekly “Toolbox Talks” take place in our offices and on the jobsite. Our Safety Director and Project Managers also make frequent site visits to influence employees’ safety thought processes each day.

Safety training, implementation, and oversight are monitored by our full time Safety Director, Tracy Haus. Tracy has the experience, knowledge and dedication to guide our Safety Program.
