In Safety First.

 

OUR COMMITTMENT:

A strong commitment to the safety and integrity of the general public, our own employees and our associated subcontractors is the supreme responsibility of all levels of our organization.

FLEET SAFETY:

Vehicle accidents can cause serious injury and undue hardship on our employees and their families. It is the policy of MAREK to achieve the greatest practical freedom from accidents and to ensure that every employee is provided safe and healthful working conditions. The MAREK fleet safety program was established to reduce and prevent accidents. We will, as always, comply with all applicable regulations and expect all drivers to drive safely and obey traffic laws. Safety is a priority. Our success depends on our driving workforce.

BASIC SAFETY TRAINING:

All new employees are targeted to attend this state of the art course which covers our commitment to safe operations and safe work practices:

  • Company History

  • Hazardous Communications - HAZCOM
  • Hand and Power Tools

Marek Safety Training

Is training available in English and Spanish?

YES! And at the same time too

EQUIPMENT TRAINING:

Equipment plays an important role in the completion of our projects and understanding the capabilities and safety operation depends on a well trained workforce. We offer the following training to our employees.

  • Elevating Work Platforms
  • Power Industrial Trucks
  • Power Actuated Tools
  • Stilts Certification

QUICK GUIDES:

At MAREK we don’t rely on training, we go the extra mile and continue to monitor and test our workforce on a daily basis, maintaining the highest safety awareness possible. Therefore we develop Quick Safety Guides that our employees can rely on when questions arise. The QG’s are reference materials from equipment to our very own safety programs.

If you are a new employee and have not yet attended this orientation or you need information on your location schedule, contact the Safety Manager in your area.

Contact Jorge Vazquez, the corporate Safety Manager, for class schedules.
