Following Strict OSHA Guidelines

At Mark Daniel Exteriors, we take safety seriously. The U.S. Department of Labor issues strict guidelines, via the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that we follow religiously. By constantly educating our team with resources such as the OSHA Fact Sheets, we are able to provide our clients with peace of mind when it comes to partnering with us on important commercial and residential jobs.

OSHA Fact Sheets, such as the “Reducing Falls during Residential Construction: Roof Sheathing” are beneficial because more than one-third of fall deaths in residential construction are caused by falls from roofs. While OSHA Fact Sheets are beneficial in ensuring the highest level of safety in building construction and renovations, OSHA also has a comprehensive list of compliance requirements of OSHA standards or regulations, referenced in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

Being Safe Saves Money

The obvious benefit to having rigid safety guidelines in the workplace is the well-being of all employees. However, an often overlooked benefit to making safety a first priority is cost savings we are able to pass along to our customers.

Strict safety guidelines make big reductions in indirect costs, due to:

  • Increased productivity
  • Higher quality products
  • Increased morale
  • Better labor/management relations
  • Reduced turnover
  • Better use of human resources

All successful and profitable Texas companies do not consider OSHA compliance to be a burden, necessary evil, hinders production, or view OSHA compliance as something that does not generate revenue and adds cost to the bottom line. On the contrary, OSHA compliance makes weeds out the companies that are just out to make money instead of running a legitimate business.

Working as Team to Support Safety

Being a safe company, such as Mark Daniel Exteriors, requires a team effort. Part of that team effort is making sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to safety. That means:

  • Following outlined safety and health rules and use or wear all required gear and equipment
  • Reading the OSHA poster
  • Reporting hazardous conditions to a supervisor
  • Reporting any job-related injury or illness to the employer and seeking prompt treatment

When there is a clearly defined outline of safety rules and regulations, employees feel safe and work to the best of their ability.

In the end, workplace safety comes from a company culture of putting a significant priority on being safe and following the best safety practices. At Mark Daniel Exteriors, whether the client is a stucco customer or a roofing customer, we want them to know that we are 100% committed to safety and strive to be one of the safest companies in the D/FW Metroplex. By adhering to the standards that OSHA developed, we’re able to provide a safe work environment and pass related cost savings from these benefits to our customers. Think safety first!
