Safety

O&G's approach to safety ensures that everyone goes home safely.

At O&G, safety is more than a slogan; it is the most important thing we do. We take the safety of our employees, clients, and the community very seriously. Our proactive approach to safety ensures that everyone goes home safe to their families and loved ones at the end of each day.

O&G has been recognized with 20 Association of General Contractors safety awards since 2000 and has been recognized for 17 consecutive years by the Connecticut Construction Industries Association for industry-leading safety practices.

Our commitment to safety starts at the top. Leadership is committed to ensuring the safety of everyone who touches the O&G brand – whether it be a tradesperson working on a project site, a visitor to one of our quarries, or a family that shares the road with one of our vehicles.

O&G employs numerous OSHA-certified safety personnel whose sole responsibility is creating the safest work environments in the industry. Our safety team monitors safety issues, inspects worksites, designs safety training for our project teams, and creates awareness campaigns to ensure our workforce is educated on the best safety practices.

In addition, O&G takes pride in our industry-leading equipment maintenance program that major equipment manufacturers have recognized, like Caterpillar. Our maintenance program ensures that our equipment is safe for our staff and that the public shares the road with a well-maintained vehicle fleet.

We also utilize training and awareness programs combined with technologies that analyze leading indicators and trends in the safety practices of our employees and subcontractors. The resulting data assists in identifying potential issues, allowing us to target our training to prevent potential accidents.

O&G employs a zero-tolerance policy for safety violations committed by our employees or subcontractors. Our safety team is committed to preventing accidents and issues before they occur.

At O&G, safety is more than a slogan; it is how we do business.
