WORKSAFE Tiered Program
The TIERED program was introduced in the Spring of 2018 giving contractors the ability to accelerate the traditional WORKSAFE requirements. Each tier level has a higher degree of oversight and safety expectations that are required to the project site. The tiers are structured in such a manner to increase safety requirements by using higher levels of desired safety enhancements. Contractors can select from “Gold”, “Silver” or “Bronze” levels, of which each has certain goals of attainment. Adhering to these requirements demonstrates an advanced commitment to safety excellence and allows the site to prominently display a banner that shows the community the company’s dedication to their workforce’s health and well-being.
WORKSAFE is the nation’s first construction safety program involving a public-private partnership. This safety service is a customized job site safety approach, unique to each project owner and job site team. WORKSAFE consists of pre-construction planning, job site safety audits focused on preventing hazardous conditions from occurring and job site recognition that safety is a top priority for all involved in the project. A project must be located in Iowa in order to be eligible for the WORKSAFE program.
The following are the four key components of the WORKSAFE program:
Pre-Construction Safety Review
The process starts with a meeting held with all representatives of contractors of the WORKSAFE project. During this meeting, hazardous activities are identified and questions are asked regarding how these hazards will be controlled. Best practices are determined and a plan of action is developed and forwarded to all contractors on the project. Meetings can be held via video or conference call if deemed necessary.
Job Site Safety Audits
Job site safety audits are conducted on the WORKSAFE project by CSSI Safety Consultants, as well as one visit by Iowa OSHA Consultation. While conducting a thorough assessment of the job site, any issues that need to be corrected are addressed from a coaching perspective and all site operations that are found to be in alignment with OSHA standards are noted. Reports are then generated and forwarded to all contractors on the site.
To let the public know that the project prioritizes safety, a WORKSAFE banner is provided to display at the job site, WORKSAFE hard hat stickers are provided to all workers on the project and a press release is prepared and sent to local media outlets (optional).
Special Package Pricing
For optimal safety results, safety professionals recommend additional site visits depending on the duration of the project. For this reason, we have developed a special discounted pricing structure that offers savings on additional site visits. This pricing structure is displayed below.
