Oregon Commercial Painters takes safety seriously. Every new employee is required to take a physical, drug test, and a respirator fit test before being hired. All company foremen are CPR/First Aid Certified and many of our foremen and commercial painters are trained in either OSHA 10 or OSHA 30 safety standards. All field employees receive annual retraining in fall protection, ladder safety, scaffold use, and other topics that promote safety.
To further emphasize job safety, we have several safety incentive programs. Most of our field employees are Boom Lift Certified, Scissor Lift Certified and Scaffold Certified. Our Injury Illness Protection Program was developed to specifically target the needs of commercial painters. With our goal to have our entire crew CPR trained, First Aid trained, Fall Protection trained, Hazard Communication trained and Blood Bourne Pathogen trained, we partner with organizations like the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) to promote and train on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
Given the importance we place on safety, any injury on a job is reported that same day to our CEO, Dave Theobald. We go the distance to provide a safe working environment because the safety of our employees on our client’s jobs is our highest priority.
