Creating a safe, dynamic culture

Safety Team

Balestrieri’s dedication to safety cannot be matched. We are consistently seeking out new opportunities to learn and grow together as a team.
Cindy Balestrieri
– Vice President

At Balestrieri, protection of human health and the environment is our number one priority. Our commitment to the worker safety, the safety of employees of others on the job site, and the general public goes far beyond what is expected. We are consistently raising the bar for safety standards.

Safer Together

Meet The Team

We’ve created a committee that meets monthly to discuss relevant topics concerning various aspects of our industry and to formulate the most effective safety practices and procedures. The topics of discussion are determined at an annual meeting with our Risk Control Professional to review the most relevant aspects of industry trends, company performance, and insurance requirements. The committee has proven a valuable addition to our continually growing safety program.

Job Related Safety & Health Hazards

Because worker safety and protection means everything to us, all of our employees are trained and required to follow company safety policies, procedures, and practices designed to protect them from, and help them proactively recognize, job-related safety and health hazards. Our safety and training program includes provisions for the systematic identification, evaluation, prevention, and control of general workplace hazards, specific job hazards, and potential hazards that may arise from unforeseen circumstances. Our employees have the proper training, PPE equipment, physical prowess, and proactive mindsets to deal calmly and professionally in every situation.

Worker Safety & Protection

Our entire field staff participates in a comprehensive medical surveillance plan to ensure they are healthy and physically fit enough to meet the demanding needs of their day-to-day jobs. In addition to medical surveillance, all field staff personnel go through extensive safety training to verify they are familiar with proper industry safety measures and procedures to help keep job sites safe and accident-free. Our impeccable internal trainings include:

  • A thorough review of our company Safety & Health program
  • Hazardous Communication refresher courses

  • Heavy metals and hazardous materials safe handling review
  • Defensive driving skills refresher course
  • Fleet Safety Manual review
  • Powered Industrial Vehicle Safety training
  • Refreshers in Demolition Safety, Fall Protection, Scaffold Safety, Aerial Lift Training, CPR/First Aid, and more

From rigorous record keeping and documentation to ongoing training and strict adherence to Federal, State, and Local regulations for safety and job site management – we are 100% committed to worker, job site, and environmental safety and protection.
