Bulley & Andrews’ strong safety culture, developed and maintained by our dedicated employees, ensures people go home safe and healthy at the end of each day. Our efforts have resulted in one of the most significant accomplishments in our 130-yr. history:

700,000+ self-performed hours worked in 2022 with 0 lost time.

This statistic is the most recent evidence of B&A’s commitment to safety. However, our EMR is consistently among the lowest in the industry.

With a safety rating among the best in the industry, Bulley & Andrews makes safety and training a top priority.

We are proud of our excellent safety record, achieved through the dedication of our employees and trade contractors. We work tirelessly to promote safe, accident-free environments which reflects our steadfast commitment to zero accident project sites.

Our Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is .67, among the lowest in the construction industry and well below the nationwide industry standard of 1.0.  Our formidable safety rating is of particular importance to owners since it decreases insurance rates, resulting in direct cost savings.

Safety Created By Culture 

For B&A, safety means much more than earning a low EMR, achieving favorable insurance rates and being compliant with OSHA regulations. It’s about making an exhaustive effort to develop and execute safe building practices to ensure safe working environments. We achieve and maintain impressive safety statistics by promoting a “safety first” mentality. Our safety culture is rooted in the core principle that safety comes before all.

B&A takes great pride in and devotes significant resources to fortifying our safety department and supporting its best practices and protocols. However, what sets us apart as an organization is a culture that doesn’t just set mandates and monitor compliance. B&A’s formidable safety culture is predicated on employees being the driving force in looking out for one another and creating and maintaining safe conditions. Regardless of what facets of the organization you serve, as a collective, we share a commitment: everyone should go home safe and healthy at the end of the day.

This ethos is readily evidenced by employees who proactively seek to improve our practices and work tirelessly to avoid accidents. An example of this heightened dedication is best personified by one of our safety staff who recently earned the OSHA 500 certification. This advanced training allows them to teach OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 hour safety and health outreach training programs and issue certifications to B&A employees. This not only allows staff members to conveniently continue safety training in-house, but also provides them with an opportunity to learn from their peers and champion our “safety created by culture” mentality.

B&A project teams conduct weekly, on-site toolbox talks and participate in safety review meetings as part of our rigorous safety program. We also hold quarterly safety training for all field supervisors. All B&A supervisors are OSHA 30-hour trained.

B&A’s safety professionals conduct regular safety audits and assist our project staff to ensure all OSHA and site-specific safety requirements are identified and met.
