Who We Are

Safety First and Foremost

At BrandSafway, environmental health and safety (EHS) is our foremost value. It's a basic right that we owe to our employees, customers and everyone we interact with. We strive to set a standard in our industry by continuously improving our safety performance.

Five Pillars of Safety

Building an effective safety program is like building a sturdy structure; it begins with a stable foundation. At BrandSafway, our solid base is our EHS management processes, known as our five pillars of safety. These are the strong and stable foundation on which we’ve built our outstanding safety performance and culture, and they effectively drive our strategic safety initiatives globally.

Employee Intervention System

BrandSafway's Employee Intervention System (EIS) was developed to stop accidents before they happen. A proactive, behavioral-based process, the EIS helps prevent poor decisions in the hazard recognition and control process. This kaizen-based system identifies potential hazards associated with the environment, projects and work practices, allowing us to anticipate and prevent accidents by coaching employees on correct behaviors. Through the EIS, employees are empowered and obligated to stop work whenever they think an unsafe condition exists. This employee-driven program allows us to stay on the cutting edge of safety through continuous improvement.

Supervisor Observation System

The Supervisor Observation System (SOS) uses peer-to-peer observation and review to promote proactive ownership, accountability and positive leadership development at the supervisor level.

Management Safety Reviews

Management Safety Reviews (MSRs) help engage management to develop and promote safety leadership in the field. An integral part of BrandSafway's EHS system, this interactive tool requires managers to complete field observations, encouraging a thorough understanding of safety processes in the field.

Gold Link Audit System

BrandSafway's Gold Link Audit System is an in-depth and multilevel internal evaluation of a jobsite's safety management system and processes. Through inspection, interview and documentation review, action items are assigned and delegated to responsible parties and then tracked.

BrandSafway Learning Network

The BrandSafway Learning Network (BSLN) is our state-of-the-art, web-based learning management system for compliance, regulatory, craft and career path training. Through the BSLN, all BrandSafway employees can easily access work-related training and education.

Safety Values

At BrandSafway, we are committed to developing a culture where environmental health and safety are core values, adopted and practiced throughout all levels of the organization. Our commitment to EHS starts at the top with our executive leadership team and cascades throughout our organization to include our entire network of companies, branches, locations and jobsites. Ownership, personal responsibility and the importance of following policies and procedures are consistently communicated across our company. Our leadership team believes ALL accidents can be prevented and ALL of our employees are responsible for EHS — not only for themselves, but also for their co-workers, customers and contractors on every one of our jobsites. With these core values as the focus of our industry-leading safety culture and our award-winning safety record, BrandSafway is more than a company with a great safety program; BrandSafway is a safe company.
