Nova Group, Inc. recognizes the importance of safety on every construction project and fosters a “zero unsafe acts” attitude at all job sites. The company has an active and comprehensive accident-prevention policy to ensure it can operate successfully in the inherently hazardous construction industry. The safety plan receives focused input from every level of the company starting with the President, and includes each and every person working on a Nova project.
Aware that safety is an ongoing team effort, Nova has taken steps to optimize participation and compliance. One of those steps is an incentive program that recognizes outstanding safety performance. The goal of the program is to improve all employees’ safety awareness, and reward those who adhere to strict policies and procedures. A comprehensive safety-training program provides all craft employees with an eight-hour safety orientation; supervisors (fore level through project management) receive a 40-hour supervisor course. Both are accredited by the National Center for Construction Education and Research.
