Granite State Plumbing & Heating LLC is committed to providing a safe working environment for all employees; this is reflected in its enviable safety record. GSPH has two dedicated full time safety officers that provide a constant resource for all safety, health and environmental concerns, as well as providing all employees with continual safety trainings in the subjects of confined space, lock-out tag-out, and fall protection to name a few.
Through a team approach, GSPH has developed a proactive, positive "safe culture" which reinforces the commitment towards improving safety throughout the company.
Don Gagnon and Walter Farnum are responsible for onsite safety visits, implementation of safety protocol, inspecting equipment and tools, job hazard analyses, and assuring compliance with safe work practices.
We believe in the importance of Comfort Systems USA 5x5 safety initiative. 5x5 is taught to all employees to ensure that they think and work safely. The 5x5 approach will increase employee awareness to "take 5 seconds and 5 steps back" to think about their surroundings and work area to make sure it's a safe work environment.
Granite State Plumbing & Heating provides every employee with a new hire safety orientation training which sets forth the procedures and expectations necessary to assure a safe work environment.
This orientation contains information on how to identify and report unsafe conditions, injuries, hazardous communications (GHS), P.P.E., and other safety related items. GSPH employees take part in several training sessions prior to entering the workforce as well as each year to refresh any prior safety skills and/or introduce new concepts and standards.
Weekly safety meetings are performed on all GSPH construction job sites (and monthly for service employees), combined with advanced safety training which enables us to maintain a positive safety culture by encouraging safe work practices.
Because of the high importance of safety that all GSPH employees instill, to date we have received much positive feedback from Construction companies that we have the honor of partnering with. Some of this feedback includes:
