The Environmental Health and Safety Department is an integral component of risk management at Breakthrough Developers, Inc and is responsible for oversight and implementation of all aspects of the company’s health and safety programs and policies. Breakthrough Developers history has demonstrated that the more aligned our business units, subcontractors and partners are with our safety ideal of loss avoidance rather than regulatory compliance, the safer and more successful the project outcome. Breakthrough Developers is committed to a “safety first” philosophy. The department, in coordination with a dedicated staff of people to safety, has developed a comprehensive safety program consisting of four guiding as Building L.I.F.E. (Living Injury Free Everyday) principles; 1) Injuries are Preventable, 2) Perform a Job Only if it is Safe, 3) Working Safely is a Condition of Employment and 4) Practice and Expect Safe Behavior Everywhere, Everyday. The Building L.I.F.E. approach strives to eliminate worksite incidents through pre-planning construction activities, “prevention through design” with safety engagement commencing at project pursuit. These standards along with our policies, mandatory inspections and training programs have created the most comprehensive and effective safety organization in the construction industry today.
