WORKSAFE Program Benefits

The benefit of signing up for the WORKSAFE Program is, as a team (Owner, Contractors and CSSI) get together conducting a pre-construction meeting to develop site specific procedures that will provide best practices making it a safe environment for your employees. During these pre-construction kick-off meetings, we discuss what exposures are present during the course of the project and a plan of action to navigate these exposures. For example; Site Security, Medical Services, Emergency Action Plans and General Safety requirements. 

OSHA requires each company to have these plans in place, and that all employees in your company are informed. CSSI representatives can conduct thorough assessments of all aspects of the site utilizing a state-of-the-art Safety App / Reporting System developed and only utilized by the CSSI team ensuring that all requirements are in alignment with OSHA standards. WORKSAFE can provide a customized safety service unique to each project, owner and job site team.

If your jobsite is interested in safety service that is customized to you, enroll in WORKSAFE.
Please reach out to Mark Wieland, mark@iowacssi.com or 515-577-7622 if you have any questions.
Additionally, if your company needs assistance developing Emergency Action Plans, reach out to the CSSI team.
