Anova places the highest priority around worker safety on our projects, and we are committed to recognizing and rewarding employees who have exhibited outstanding safe work practices while performing work on our projects.
While OSHA may set the foundation for a successful safety program, we believe there is a science to construction safety. The Anova Safety Program is people focused and protection driven. Construction safety is as much about human behavior as it is about policy, auditing, and training. We recognize every organization or project has unique safety challenges. Anova strives to understand those challenges and provide our clients with the tools needed to reach their goals. At Anova, Project Safety and OSHA Regulations are not just a set of rules; it is part of our culture.
“At Anova, we focus on individual and small team efforts for specific clients,” said Josh Whitt, Account Manager. “As we reach impressive milestones, we don’t want these achievements to go unnoticed. Managing project safety is not easy, and in some cases, it carries a negative mantra and a so-called negative effect on productivity. However, our group handles safety differently. We select our safety managers carefully. Our communication style is non-confrontational and effective. We also help sell the owner/client’s safety culture because we own it as well. We look at project specific safe work hours, the same way our major clients do, and these metrics are impressive.”
Our Safety Program recognizes safety managers and those responsible for the safety of the personnel on projects with a certificate of accomplishment when they achieve at least 100,000 safe work hours. We would like to recognize the Corteva Agriscience team for accomplishing ZERO Accidents while surpassing 500,000 safe work hours since the last recordable incident.
