Work & Safety

WORK PRACTICES

First and foremost, Safety is at the start of everything we do at Matrix. From our initial site meetings, to our work plans, to our closeout documentation, we strive to provide a safe working, living and learning environment for all we come in contact with.

Matrix constantly reviews our work practices to ensure that the projects we complete offer the most up to date processes, technologies and safety precautions that the industry can offer.

HEALTH & SAFETY

At the core of our values at Matrix is the protection of our employees and the safety of our jobsites. At every level of our company, we understand the consequences of unsafe work practices and they are never tolerated.

Matrix employs a full time, dedicated Safety Manager that has no other corporate responsibilities beyond safety. Safe jobsites don’t just happen, they are planned and earned.

As part of our continuing efforts to improve our safety, Matrix has implemented many programs, including:

In addition to standard work plans and SSSP’s, Matrix starts every project with additional safety planning including:

  • Job Hazard Analysis
  • Daily pre-task planning
  • Structural engineering for demolition plans when applicable

Each project gets a full safety inspection by our Safety Manager at least once a week. The results of these inspections are shared with all managers of Matrix.

Matrix has created a tailgate training system of standardized topics that ensures all employees are receiving safety training that is both appropriate the work site and inclusive of all needed topics. Our tailgate meetings are held once a week, exceeding OSHA requirements.

All employees of Matrix are required to complete in office safety training upon hire and once a quarter after that. This training includes items such as ladder safety, lock-out tag-out, power tools, confined space entry and heat awareness.

All Matrix supervisors must be OSHA 30 certified.

All other field employees are required to have OSHA 10 Certifications.
