Safety

At National Design Build Services, safety is not a set of policies.  It’s a culture that is practiced daily.  The safety of our people is our #1 priority, day in and day out.  Our mandatory PPE policy exceeds industry requirements and our no-tolerance policy for workers at heights establishes our dedication for bringing everyone home safely every night.  NDBS has one of the lowest Experience Modification Ratings (EMR) in the industry, demonstrating our superior track record of injury-free installations.  We live our motto:


“Safety. Period. We’ll See You Tomorrow.”

Setting the Bar for Safety Standards


We work with a 3rd party safety firm to continually review and update safety policies and site installation procedures to ensure that our workers are protected during all tasks.  Our Safety department and Project Managers work alongside our customers to refine their protocols to simplify common tasks and maximize efficiencies while maintaining a secure working environment.  NDBS also utilizes the resources of our Professional Employer Organization (PEO) and the hundreds of companies they work with to stay current on industry trends.  NDBS’ high standards for safety include:

  • A comprehensive Illness and Injury Prevention Program (IIPP) that is evaluated on a yearly basis for changes in industry policies and communicated to all employees
  • All NDBS Site Supervisors carry OSHA 30-hour certifications
  • All Field Workers carry OSHA 10-hour certifications at a minimum
  • Site Supervisors hold “Competent Person” certifications in Fall Protection from 3M
  • Continual training and certifications in the use of all powered equipment that may be used on site
  • Field employees rotate the responsibility of completing Jobsite Safety Analysis paperwork
  • Weekly Toolbox Topics specifically targeted to tasks being performed and dangers that may be encountered on site
  • Bi-annual training seminars with all Project Managers and field staff to discuss our processes and how to ensure safety while working more efficiently
  • Site Safety Inspections are carried out by Project Managers on all site visits and any noted deficiencies are discussed with the customer’s representative.
  • Field personnel are encouraged to provide their insight regarding any procedural changes that should be implemented
