When S&B takes on a project, we make strong commitments to our clients to deliver as promised, on time and on budget. We know that we can only succeed by operating safely in every detail of that project. Without question. Always. 

With Us, Safety Is Personal.

At S&B, people matter. Our goal is that every S&B team member returns home safely to their loved ones at the end of each day. It is the people – at every level in the organization – that make this possible. 

Everyone at S&B takes ownership when it comes to safety. We have designed specific elements of our safety program to ensure employee involvement and ownership at every level. These programs include:

  • People Observing People (POP)
  • Safety Task Assignment (STA)
  • Obligation to Stop Work
  • Life Saving Commitments

S&B follows the Zero Accident Safety Techniques of the Construction Industry Institute (CII). We believe that all injuries, accidents and loss of property can be prevented. 

To help us on our goal to zero incidents, we incorporate principles of Human and Organizational Performance (HOP) to strengthen our safety program. HOP builds capacity to enable safe work, allows us to foster trust and open communication and creates the foundation necessary for continuous improvement in all areas of the company.

Our safety program in action.

When you visit an S&B jobsite our commitment to safety is clear, but don't take our word for it. Our safety program and initiatives have been celebrated consistently by leading industry organizations.

S&B is part OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program (VPP), which is the premier recognition of a company's safety and health management programs and systems. This demonstrates to the industry that our safety program and worksites meet the highest standards. 

Of hundreds of thousands of U.S. companies, only about 2,000 have been accepted into VPP. We’re proud to be in this group, and we have gained further distinction by being accepted as a Star Mobile Workforce, the highest achievement in VPP.

The mobile designation is significant. More than 90% of VPP memberships are for fixed sites, such as refineries, chemical plants and manufacturers. These sites typically require all onsite contractors to also become VPP. This has opened the door for many construction companies to receive the designation, but only for that fixed site.

S&B's VPP Star Mobile Workforce designation goes with us wherever we work. It is the highest level of confidence that we can give ourselves and our clients.
