OUR Safety

Culture & training

At Sierra Mountain Construction, Inc. we recognize that our Safe­ty Cul­ture and Training is at the foundation of everything we do.  From every employee, project,  to every mass of material composed, the safekeeping of our employees, the public and the environment is our commitment.  As a result, SMCI’s Injury Illness Prevention Plan (IIPP) is implemented to ensure that the health and safety

policies provide a positive and safe work environment.   Consecutively, for three years,

SMCI has been recognized for the coveted R.E.A.L Recognizing Excellence Awareness by our peers.  Proudly, we have been also recognized for Leadership in the 75,000-250,000 safe man hours classification, as well as, to be named as Certified Gold Shovel Contractor.  All SMCI’s safety programs are ensure to comply with federal, state, and local regulations, with emphasis on the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) required for construction operations.   As a constant reminder of the nature of the hazards faced on the job daily, it is our duty that we require  all supervisors, foremen, and  project managers to remain current in the OSHA 30‐ hour Construction Outreach Program.    We also regularly schedule formal field and classroom training in all necessary safety standards – fall protection, excavations, confined space access, heat illness prevention, forklift, aerial lift, and rigging/lifting operations are a few examples. Our corporate Safety Department is staffed with trained and certified experts, whose tasks are training and follow‐up, with constant field interaction, intervention, and mentoring to ensure that everyone at every level on our projects understands, supports, and enforces SMCI’s safety philosophy and policies.
