UDC adopts a safety policy that is based on employee and subcontractor training for awareness and to meet or exceed Cal-OSHA, Fed-OSHA, and MSHA regulations (Title 8, CFR 1910, 1926, and Part 46).
Our employees are equally empowered, without fear of reprisal, to stop any project in process if for any reason due a safety concern. UDC only partners with subcontractors that share an equal position on the importance of safety on the job and for those that need assistance in training we offer in-house training for them as well.
UDC employs a full-time safety officer that is an authorized OSHA construction safety trainer for general industry and construction safety, receiving in excess of 400 hours of formal safety training via the OSHA training institute. Further, he has 35 years of experience in all classifications of industrial/commercial construction and has the full approval of the owners to employ the safest procedures.
UDC employs an additional part-time safety officer that supplements our in-house training as required.
UDC employees receive a minimum of 30 hours of construction safety training in compliance with OSHA training institute requirements with a special endorsement for Cal-OSHA regulations.
Our IIP program is comprehensive to encompass the diversity of our services and to exceed compliance with Cal-OSHA, Fed-OSHA, and MSHA program policy requirements.
In addition to client site specific safety requirements and training, our field superintendents and foreman are trained and required to utilize Job Hazard Analysis tools to identify and predict safety concerns in advance of project/task starting.
UDC is pre-approved for work by 3rd party audit companies, such as IS Networld.
