HVAC Safety & OSHA Compliance at Sobieski
At Sobieski, we don’t just talk about safety, we live and breathe it. We have a full-time Safety Department which provides in-house safety training, conducts field audits, provides professional accident investigation and ensures full OSHA compliance.
In addition to having full background and criminal checks, all of our field employees are required to have their OSHA 10-hour certification and attend a defensive driving course. Everyone is also provided with an annual four hour OSHA refresher course.
Safety, Security and Peace of Mind for Our Customers
We’re committed to providing a safe and drug-free workplace. As such, we employ mandatory pre-employment, random and for-cause drug testing. We also have independent background checks performed on employees consistent with the requirements of our corporate customers.
Our Executive Safety Committee is made up of our owners, division managers, field superintendents, safety personnel, human resources and executive management. This committee meets biweekly to review the results of our field safety audits, discuss emerging safety issues and evaluate the overall effectiveness and performance of our safety programs.
