Burns PosterFinal


At Burns Mechanical, safety is our number one priority.  We ask all employees to follow the “B-S.A.F.E.” objective: “Burns – Smart, Alert, Focused, Every time.”  We’re dedicated to achieving a zero-injury workplace because the safety and well-being of our employees is the highest priority. We intend for every person to be as safe and healthy at the end of the work day as when they arrived.

We believe that all accidents are preventable. Key elements in our plan to maintain a strong and effective safety culture include:

  • Management commitment, involvement, and accountability
  • Written safety and health programs and substance abuse policy, as well as Site-specific safety programs developed for each individual job
  • Safety orientation for all new employees
  • Supervisor training for any employee placed in a supervisory role
  • OSHA 10 hour training for all supervisory and office staff
  • OSHA 30 hour training for all field staff
  • Pre-job safety planning for all projects
  • Pre-task safety planning at employee level performed company-wide at every work site
  • Systemic safety auditing processes completed by several levels of management to ensure compliance
  • Use of a toll-free number for employees, customers, and the general public to call and ask safety questions or report unsafe conditions
  • Every employee has Stop Work Authority or the responsibility to stop work when a perceived unsafe condition or behavior is observed.
