Our Safety Policy

PMA Consultants and related companies are committed to providing a safe workplace for all employees. Consistent with this commitment, it is PMA policy to abide by all federal, state, and local regulations as they pertain to PMA’s work, to apply safe practices to all jobs, and to exercise good judgment in the application of this policy.

PMA believes that no job or task is more important than an employee’s health and safety.

Every procedure must be a safe procedure; shortcuts in safe procedures by anyone will not be tolerated. If a task represents a potential safety or health threat, every effort shall be made to plan a safe way to carry out the task.

A job that cannot be done safely is not to be done.

An employee who observes any unprotected work area that may pose a potential threat to the employee and/or coworkers’ health or safety must so inform his/her supervising Leader and the PMA Safety Coordinator. Adequate precautions must be taken, which may include an appropriate stoppage of work.

PMA plans to achieve employee safety and health by requiring that employees understand and be aware of the following rules and regulations:

  • Using qualified personnel
  • Making jobsite inspections
  • Enforcing the use of safety equipment
  • Following safety procedures and rules
  • Providing ongoing safety training
  • Enforcing safety rules and using appropriate corrective action
  • Knowing when and what personnel protective equipment (PPE) may be required for a specific task

Typically, construction projects have in place a jobsite safety program developed, implemented, and monitored by the Owner’s contractor that has responsibility for safety on the jobsite. PMA employees working on or visiting a jobsite are required to attend safety training or safety orientation, and are required to adhere to the safety program in place at the jobsite.
