Ajax Building Corporation Receives SHARP Renewal

Ajax Building Corporation has a steadfast commitment to safety. In fact, the safety philosophy for the Midway-based building construction management firm is “no job is so important and no service so urgent that we cannot take time to perform our work safely."

For Ajax this means consistently going above and beyond the minimum OSHA requirements to protect the men and women working on their projects. Marc Reeves, corporate safety director, says Ajax's health and safety management system involves all levels of employees and management to "aggressively address safety issues."

This is Ajax's third SHARP certification. Because the company has jobsites throughout Florida, each building project has its own job-specific health and safety plan. Reeves says the detailed plans outline health and safety responsibilities assigned to the project team members as well as sub-contractors. "Sub-contractor compliance is written into the contract, and task-specific safety issues are listed in the scope of work to be performed."

Another Ajax safety implementation is their Job Site Recognition Program, an award bestowed bi-annually to construction sites demonstrating the best safety practices. According to Reeves, the recognition program "helps maintain safety awareness and stimulates employee participation in the company's safety management program."

Ajax Building Corporation believes "all accidents are preventable," and its goal "to send every employee home whole and healthy every day" represents their unwavering dedication to keeping safety a core value.
