Safety is integral to Cooper’s culture.  Every employee’s commitment to safety is vital to preventing injuries and illness. Our mission is to promote a positive workplace attitude and accountability from all individuals — the CEO to the new hire.


Project Safety Orientation Program

The project safety orientation provides guidelines for workers on every project. All workers on our projects are required to attend the project safety orientation prior to performing any on-site work. Attendance is recorded with a sign-in sheet and a safety orientation sticker is provided to each individual. The project safety orientation includes the following CORE elements:

-Incident Reporting and Investigation Requirement

-Personal Protective Equipment

-Drug and Alcohol Policy

-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy

-Workplace Violence Prevention Policy

-General Safety Requirements on the Project

-Disciplinary Action Policy

-Emergency Procedures

-Site-Specific Hazards Associated with the Project


Supervisors Competency Training

Cooper’s supervisor competency training provides a solid foundation for developing our superintendent’s knowledge in occupational health and safety awareness combined with their duties and responsibilities as a competent person to provide a safe working environment. It is a mandatory requirement for superintendents to have the OSHA 30-hour construction training.

Employee Safety Training

Safety training is an important aspect of Cooper’s safety culture in helping employees understand industry best practices and safe means and methods to complete job tasks safely. Cooper’s policy mandates that all workers are provided with safety training on health and safety topics. Annual fall protection training is mandatory for all Cooper field personnel.

Subcontractor Safety Requirements

Subcontractors are immersed into our workforce culture on all projects. Subcontractors are required to submit all safety training documentation for each individual performing work on Cooper projects and safety plans required by the project specification, OSHA and EM 385-1-1 regulation.

Safety Hotline

Cooper has a confidential anonymous safety hotline which employees and personnel can report unsafe conditions, safety issues, complaints and concerns on Cooper projects without fear of retaliation or punishment. The safety hotline number is posted on each project’s safety occupational health bulletin board. Any report received is investigated by the corporate safety manager within 24 hours and a final report is provided to the Chief Executive Officer.

How Safety is integrated into all work procedures

On our projects, Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) and Pre-Task Plans (PTP) are used to integrate accepted safety and health principles and practices into a particular task or job operation. Each basic step of the job is to identify potential hazards and to recommend the safest way to do the job.
