SAFETY

Pulice’s safety program is built on 100% employee involvement and commitment to excellence in safety. The Company strives for zero-job related injuries/illnesses. Our management team is fully committed to performing work safely and accident-free. In order to accomplish these goals, we have developed an aggressive safety program that includes safety policies and procedures that meet, or in most cases exceed OSHA standards. Employees are trained to plan and work safely, recognize unsafe conditions or acts, and initiate corrective actions. As a result, our OSHA Incident Rate five-year average is far below the industry standard.

Pulice has been recognized for its safety efforts, including the Arizona Transportation Builders Association (ATB) Ben Patton Luster Safety Award, received in both 2016 and 2014.

ISO 45001 CERTIFICATION

ISO 45001 is the standard for management systems of occupational health and safety. Northern Parkway was selected as one of our ISO 45001 pilot projects. The team worked in conjunction with our safety department to put all the necessary systems in place to meet the rigorous standards. The project went through an interim audit in the summer of 2019 and achieved the ISO 45001 certification from an independent auditor in the fall of 2019.

SAFETY, HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (SHEMS)

Pulice Construction Inc. is aware of and committed to responding to the potential safety, health and environmental impacts resulting from its operations and activities. In keeping with Pulice Construction Inc.  policies, which are incorporated herein by reference, Pulice Construction Inc. management will implement a Safety, Health and Environmental Management System to address these potential impacts and to carry out operations and activities in a manner that protects and safeguards human health and the environment.

This management system is designed to make safety, health and environmental care an integral part of all projects and the responsibility of all employees. It allocates appropriate resources and provides the training necessary to ensure the achievement of safety, health and environmental objectives. Senior Management at Pulice Construction Inc. is committed to keeping this system active and effective and to continuously improve it as a framework to achieve the following results:

Regulatory Compliance

We will evaluate and comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations at each location where we conduct business.

Prevention of Accidents

We will strive to identify and assess risk in all of our activities and take actions to mitigate any high-risk conditions.

Prevention of Pollution

We will seek to cost-effectively avoid the creation of pollution and waste from our projects and operations and to manage waste through safe and responsible methods.

Conservation

We will strive to reduce our consumption of natural resources through cost-effective use of recycled and reused materials and conservation of energy and water.

Emissions and Effluents

We will work to diminish our emissions and effluents by employing proven cost-effective operational controls, by diligently monitoring operational indicators, and by implementing corrective and preventive action where necessary.

Ecology and Habitat

We will protect habitats, wetlands and other sensitive ecological resources in accordance with applicable regulations and local ordinances.

Hazardous and Toxic Substances

We will exercise caution when using hazardous materials and avoid the use of toxic substances if unable to properly assess their human, ecological or environmental risks.

Communication

We will communicate this policy to all employees, make it available to the public, and establish procedures to receive and respond to inquiries from the workforce and external interested parties. We will also alert potentially affected individuals and authorities of any safety, health, or environmental incident(s) in a timely and effective manner. Thorough investigations will be conducted and corrective and preventive actions implemented and monitored.

Objectives

Every year, Top Management, in collaboration with the SHEMS team, will analyze the status of the system and establish objectives that will be reviewed periodically during the year.

“We have to lead by example. Everyone needs to feel empowered to stop a situation. Stop a crew. Don’t be afraid because you will make a difference. We need to make people feel comfortable about reporting situations because they are our eyes and our ears.”
