Safety at Syncon

Safety for the Syncon Team is a core value. We live ‘SAFETY” and expect nothing less from anyone who performs with us and for us. We value the human element of our business and we strive to provide the safest work environment. Our team is widely-recognized for the quality of our safety program receiving multiple awards, including a recent DIAMOND STEP (Safety Training and Evaluation Process) award from Associated Builders and Contractors.

We have developed innovative mechanisms to ensure and monitor our core safety requirements. The “Minimum Safety Requirements” is a pledge that requires every person working on the site to read and sign prior to starting work on the project. Our “Minimum Safety Requirements” are designed to exceed, rather than meet OSHA and EM385 guidelines.

Program Administration

Our excellent record of safety is due to a total commitment by all employees. Our safety staff provides oversight for safety concerns from preconstruction analysis through project close-out. A SSHO is designated for each project to oversee the safety on a daily basis. The SSHO is responsible for site orientations of all subcontractor personnel, recordkeeping, Job Hazard Analysis reviews, and the management of all safety issues that may arise throughout the duration of the project. The Syncon team maintains a commitment to hire subcontractors with a culture of safety.

Program Documentation

The Syncon Team requires all subcontractors to submit a safety plan, which is reviewed and approved prior to start up. Subcontractor plans are maintained in a manual and are kept on site until completion. We require that site-specific chemical inventory lists and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) be submitted. We also require a Job Hazard Analysis (JHAs) from trades whose work poses an elevated risk and task-specific AHA for scopes of work with unusual tasks. These documents are filed in the construction field office for easy access and review.

Training Program

Our emphasis on safety training for our people and our subcontractors helps maintain the focus and continual safety improvement on our jobsites. No employee is allowed to perform a job or task unless they have received training on the hazards present and the precautions necessary to perform the job safely.

New Hire

Orientation Training
Upon being hired each employee participates in safety orientation including- Company Safety Program / Hazard Communication/ OSHA 10 or 30


Specific Training
Before beginning a new task, a review of the hazards is conducted by the supervisor. If it is determined that employees will face hazards they have not previously received training. The SSHO conducts training to insure employees can work safely


Our team will hold weekly “Toolbox Meetings”, highlighting a topic pertinent to the specifics of the project or scheduling emphasis. All employees and subcontractors are required to attend.

safety training evaluation process Awards


STEP is a safety benchmarking and improvement tool. There are six levels of STEP achievement: Participant, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond.

To achieve Diamond Level, Syncon’s Project Teams adhere to the highest safety standards while concurrently managing over 30 projects in different phases. There is great effort on the planning for safe execution of work during the preconstruction phase. This ensures our customers, subcontractor partners and personnel are protected during the building phase and the project is delivered in a safe and efficient manner.
