Culture of Safety

At EDiS Company, safety is an essential part of our culture. Safety is not about checking off boxes or meeting requirements, it is about our passion for people and our commitment to their well-being.

Safety isn’t just a buzzword, it’s part of the EDiS culture. The safety of our team and those who work on our job sites is our foremost concern, and we pledge to get everyone in the EDiS family home safe every night. This commitment stretches to the construction community as a whole; whether it’s our people, our clients, or our sub-contractors, we work hard to educate on the philosophy, technique, and benefits of safety.

Leading The Charge

Director of Safety and Health Jim Ruggiero has been at the forefront of safety at EDiS for more than a decade. Jim is a member of the Safety and Wellness Committee of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Delaware Chapter, he’s also Chairman of the Training and Education Committee of the Delaware Contractors Association (DCA). Jim works with teams of professionals to discuss and evaluate industry best practices, educational needs, and helps develop training programs to facilitate the needs of contractors based in Delaware.

Zero Accidents Program

The Zero Accidents Program is the EDiS systematic approach to analyzing, creating, and overseeing each project-specific safety management plan. EDiS operates this safety program knowing that when our employees and contractors actively participate in providing clean, healthy, and safe work sites they are benefiting our clients, our company, and our families.

Stand Down For Safety

The Safety Stand Down is a reoccurring event where employers talk directly to the team working on our construction sites about fall prevention. Work activities are stopped and all contractors gather together to focus on preventing fall hazards and reinforcing the importance of fall prevention.

Safety Meetings

Jim Ruggiero holds monthly health and safety meetings for all EDiS staff. Best practices, new or updated regulations, and review of the month’s safety activities are shared with the team. Regular health and safety communications are an essential part of EDiS culture.
