Safety - Adam's European Contracting Inc.

At Adam’s European Contracting Inc. (Adam’s) we understand that construction work is inherently dangerous, and if not properly managed, can have a severe negative impact on employees and the surrounding community.  To minimize both physical and financial risk, we provide our employees and managers with the tools needed to perform their work activities safely and efficiently. 

Training:  Adam’s is partnered with the NYC Safety Training Center to provide safety training for all employees.  Prior to setting foot on any Adam’s project, workers must successfully complete an OSHA 10-hour class and 4-hours of scaffold training which meets NYC Department of Buildings standards.  All workers who perform scaffold erection, dismantling, modification, or repair receive 32-hours of scaffold training which meets NYC DOB standards.  Project Managers, site supervisors and foremen are required to obtain OSHA 30-hour training prior to assuming supervisory duties.  Forklift, aerial lift, confined space, and excavation training is performed for those employees who may be exposed.

Safety Department: In 2008, Adam’s hired Eduardo Reluzco to be the full-time safety director.  Mr. Reluzco holds a BS in Public Safety, with specialty in OSHA compliance.  He is also a licensed Site Safety Manager, authorized OSHA Outreach Instructor, and certified Construction Safety & Health Technician.  Prior to joining Adam’s team, Mr. Reluzco worked for Con Edison’s Corporate Safety Department, the NYC School Construction Authority’s Safety Unit, and Old Republic Insurance as a Safety Specialist.  Mr. Reluzco manages a staff comprised of two safety managers and a dedicated secretary whose’ only roles are to help improve safety performance on Adam’s job locations. 

Support from the Top:  Safety at Adam’s begins at the very top.  Our President and CEO have undergone OSHA training and review every safety report; whether generated internally or from local compliance authorities.  Safety is the first issue to be discussed at internal meetings, and non-compliance to company policies is not tolerated.
