Safety

Jacobson strives for excellence not only in craftsmanship but also in occupational safety and health. Our proactive program fosters a work environment where safety comes first and is an integral part of operating procedures. Jacobson collaborates with vendors, subcontractors, and clients to engender a safe and productive environment from start to finish. Jacobson recognizes that in order for a safety program to be truly effective, participation on all levels is imperative; all tiers of management and field representatives are involved in creating and pursuing a workplace free from occupational hazards and injury. Each and every one of us at Jacobson is a Piece of the Puzzle.

Components of Jacobson’s safety program include:

  • New hire orientation
