LBI remains committed to safety and health by ensuring both a clean and mitigated hazard, work environment. We continue to maintain an exemplary record of construction safety and performance. LBI takes pride in its 0% accident record, having completed more than 160 contracts without a Lost Time or OSHA Reportable Incident. We currently have an EMR (Experienced Modification Rating) of 75% and a DART (Days Away, Restrictions, and Transfers) rate of 0.
Virtually all of our company’s prior construction projects have been executed while meeting government health and safety requirements and the primary reference document describing health and safety procedures for LBI is the USACE EM 385 1-1 Safety and Health Manual.
LBI is accustomed to developing and implementing site specific Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA). Each AHA is tailored to a Definable Feature of Work (DFOW) throughout the entire scope and duration of the project. LBI implements a policy that if any individual at any time feels uncomfortable with the task set before them, they are not to proceed and are to immediately speak with a supervisor to discuss a safe way of going about the task at hand. Moreover, LBI complies with all local, state and federal, safety and health requirements that apply per our contract. LBI posts all pertinent wage and labor law information in a commonly and readily available area at all of our job sites as well as our main office.
