At JEGON, Safety is a value that exceeds all others. We are committed to an Accident Free workplace through:

• TRAINING: Proactive training programs available to all employees.
• EMPOWERMENT: Everyone has the authority to say ‘NO’ to unsafe conditions.
• ACTION: We are committed to taking the steps necessary to protect our people, and to the continuing challenge of improving our safety system.
• MOTIVATION: Making sure that everyone goes home safe each day remains our primary motivation – above profit, above schedule, above all else.
JEGON has a strong safety culture. Everyone at JEGON feels responsible for safety and pursues it on a daily basis; employees go beyond “the call of duty” to identify unsafe conditions and behaviors, and to intervene to correct them, for instance, any JEGON employee feels comfortable walking up to the construction manager or CEO and reminding him or her to wear safety glasses. This type of behavior would not be viewed as forward or over-zealous but would be valued by Star management and rewarded. Likewise, co-workers routinely look out for one another and point out unsafe behaviors to each other.

Pre-employment physicals, ergonomic task testing, drug and alcohol testing, and background checks are the first steps in the due diligence process of a comprehensive Employee Screening Program. 

Our unique four step methodology and approach to a comprehensive and compliant employment Due Diligence Program sets Star apart from others in the industry.

Safe Work Practices
JEGON’s safe work practices are written methods outlining how to perform a task with minimum risk to people, equipment, environment and processes. Our safe work practices have been developed as a result of completing a Hazard Assessment and sound construction techniques.

Safe Job Procedures

JEGON’s safe job procedures are a written series of specific steps that guide workers through a task from start to finish in a chronological order. Safe job procedures are designed to reduce the risk by minimizing potential exposure. Safe job procedures are established by management and workers as a result of a Hazard Assessment, accident investigation, and/or as a supplement to a safe work practice. All workers are made aware of the fact that safe job procedures have been established, are in effect, are written down and MUST be followed.

JEGON has incrementally built a collection of safe practice / procedures for our construction activities. We continue to build new safe practices / procedures and refine existing safe practice / procedures.

Job Safety Analysis
Each day prior to starting work a JEGON Job Safety Analysis, “JSA” checklist is completed by the work group. This JSA checklist is a safety management tool that is used to identify, eliminate or control hazards associated with a certain job or procedure TAILGATE MEETINGS.

Engineered Fall Protection Plan
JEGON’s Fall Protection Plan – meeting OSHA regulations developed by a qualified person (professional engineer). Overhead anchorage locations are analyzed and established as part of an overall fall arrest system. Temporary male/female fiberglass plenum ladder sections are secured to the internal cooling tower framework. A retractable lifeline is installed above the temporary ladder providing a fall arrest for workers traveling up or down the ladder. The fall Protection Plan is maintained at the work site and implemented by a competent person, and changed only by a qualified person.
JEGON’s safety culture is promoted by each member of our team through planning, implementing and evaluating safety throughout the company on a daily basis. Led by Safety Director, each member of JEGON gets involved in making a zero-accident workplace a reality.
