Ivey Mechanical’s Commitment to Safety
At Ivey Mechanical, we pride ourselves on the family culture of our company, so having each other’s back comes naturally. We look out for each other. Safety is an attitude, and it’s one we take seriously. As a result of our constant focus on training and implementation of safety programs, we continue to be annual recipients of state and national safety awards. We feel as though one could never be trained enough or safe enough. Proper training is key to the implementation and execution of the safety programs developed by our management teams.
There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our people and the people we serve.

How We Stay Safe Throughout the Job
Our full-time Safety Coordinators visit each job site to make certain all procedures are followed and our employees fully understand their responsibilities. Planning and preparation is vital to achieving success. Ivey Mechanical applies this concept to safety management.
Ivey Mechanical starts the safety planning process for each project by generating a Pre-Planning Checklist in our Blitz meeting. This Pre-Planning Checklist for Safety helps us to consistently review safety aspects of the project, review the project’s unique elements, and formulate a plan of action. The Checklist includes:
- Where we are going.
- How we will get there.
- Who will accomplish each step along the way.
- When important milestones will be reached.
Standardization of Personal Protective Equipment
Our co-workers are protected with a standardized Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) selection. A few examples of standardization: Our glove selection is trade-specific, recognizing the specific trade hazards and the protection needed to prevent injury. Fall protection equipment is standardized across the board with a full array of different products available through our vendor to meet our fall protection needs. Hard hats, vest, face shields, and safety glasses are also standardized to meet acceptable safety requirements.
Onsite Safety Meetings
All of our operations require safety meetings. Our project safety meetings are held weekly with one Safety Data Sheet (SDS) covered in the meeting in addition to the safety topic. We also cover the following once monthly:
- Prevention of Sexual Harassment
- Prevention of Workplace Violence
- AAEEO Policy
In addition to our safety meetings, training pamphlets are utilized to once a month to cover a variety of topics. Some recent examples include:
- Heat Stress
- Bloodborne Pathogens
- Fall Protection
- Walking and Working Surfaces
- Confined Space
- Hazard Awareness
