SAFETY / QUALITY

Jake Marshall, LLC has a 100% commitment to safety. Our primary objective is for the safety and health of our employees who are the reason for our success. Success in safety is measured by a complete commitment from management to field personnel who become part of a team dedicated to our objective. A safe working environment in the field requires all facets of a project from the owner to every subcontractor to work within a defined framework pre determined for each project. Our commitment to this framework begins with a Zero incident rate as our primary goal.

Our safety programs far exceed the minimum requirements for both State and Federal OSHA programs. Our employees undergo annual training, re-certification and must pass required exams in all areas of Safety. Our Safety Staff works closely with our Insurance carrier and their Loss Prevention programs to further strengthen our safety programs.

We also require the same safety commitment from our subcontractors, as they are pre-qualified in terms of their safety program. This allows Jake Marshall, LLC to form a partnership not only with the General Contractor and/or owner but also with our subcontractors on each project.

CORPORATE SAFETY STATEMENT

Safety is a requirement of all operations of Jake Marshall, LLC. It is the purpose of this company to adhere to the regulations pertaining to the construction Industry.

It is a condition of employment with Jake Marshall, LLC that all employees must adhere faithfully to the requirements of this policy and the safety rules, instructions, and procedures issued in conjunction with it.

LOSS CONTROL STATEMENT

Loss Control and Safety is the combined responsibility of all company officers, executives, management personnel, supervisors, foreman and lead employees.

However, Loss Control and Safety succeeds only when management and workers join in this responsibility and in the desire and effort to create and maintain a continuous Loss Control and Safety Program.

Safety begins with an attitude and progresses to a habit.

Drug Free Work Place

Our commitment to safety also includes as top priority, a drug free work environment. We have become partners with the State of Tennessee in their Tennessee Drug Free Workplace Program.

The illegal use of drugs and the abuse of alcohol are problems that invade the workplace, endangering the health and safety of the abusers and those who work around them. Jake Marshall, LLC is committed to creating and maintaining a workplace free of substance abuse without jeopardizing valued employees' job security.

Our policy formally and clearly states that the illegal use of drugs and alcohol or prescription drugs will not be tolerated. As a method of maintaining our policy, we have implemented pre-employment and active employment substance testing.

Our policy was developed with two basic objectives in mind: (1) employees deserve a environment that is free from the negative effects of drugs and alcohol and the problems associated with their abuse, and (2) Jake Marshall, LLC has a responsibility to maintain a healthy and safe workplace.

To assist in providing a safe and healthy workplace, we maintain a resource file of information on various means of employee assistance in our community, including but not limited to drug and alcohol abuse programs.
