Health & Safety

Associated Building Wreckers is fully committed to recycling, not because it’s the law, but because it’s the right thing to do. At the end of a building’s life, demolition generates large amounts of wood, metal and masonry that can be reused or recycled. Our strategic partnerships with outside recycling facilities in the Northeast means we can be extremely competitive on each and every project.

During the initial investigation of the project we will identify those items that can be salvaged for resale at our facility. Often times these are cast iron radiators, boilers, plumbing fixtures, cabinetry, mantles and various architectural pieces. Every pound of reused material that comes out of the project is a direct cost savings to our customers.

Training

All employees receive OSHA 10-hour Health and Safety training. This is the minimum standard for The Department of Labor. Additional and ongoing training takes place each day as to the specific hazards of that particular job. Due to the dangers of our industry, most of our employees are also licensed asbestos supervisors or workers. Our team can quickly identify, assess, and correct any unforeseen conditions.

Leadership

Associated Building Wreckers believes that safety should be a top down philosophy. For any safety program to be effective, the management team must “walk the walk.” This leadership is extended from the President through to first-line supervision. This philosophy doesn’t stop there however; safety is a joint effort with ALL employees and EVERY subcontractor. Everyone must accept responsibility for maintaining safety.

Prevention

From proper planning to PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), every precaution is taken everyday to ensure the safety of our employees. Our experienced crews are skilled in all aspects of the business, from demolition to asbestos, lead, and mold abatement to Hazard Communication.
