Safety

At Reed Construction, safety is our #1 priority. We believe there is nothing more important than the personal safety of those present on our jobsites, which is why we are committed to providing all personnel with training on best safety practices.

To ensure that our job sites remain safe, we:

  • Exceed industry standards by maintaining a 0.71 EMR score, which is 29% higher than the national average.
  • Adhere to the rules and guidelines set forth by OSHA, ICRA, ILSM and IDPH.
  • Utilize the latest technology in occupied healthcare spaces to monitor and maintain cleanliness, such as digital manometers and HEPA machines.
  • Conduct regular project-specific safety hazard and site condition assessments.
  • Require all subcontractors we hire to adhere to these high standards of safety while visiting or performing any work on our job sites.
  • Your team’s attention to detail is unsurpassed. We faced many unique challenges throughout the project and Reed’s dexterity allowed us to execute flawlessly without interruption to normal business function.
