At Opus, safety is both a priority and a value. Promoting a safe environment is an essential part of our corporate culture — the safety of people and our jobsites and workspaces is top of mind through all levels of our organization. We value the safety of everyone who comes into contact with our work and our associates.
While safety is the responsibility of every associate, we also have an Operations Team and Facilities Team that help support worker health and safety across all jobsites and offices.
We believe we make the greatest impact by talking about, reinforcing and supporting safety over time. Safety then becomes the result of doing things consistently every day and maintaining focus on the jobsite.
Whenever possible, we look for ways to work with the government authorities responsible for enforcing safety. We look for opportunities to participate in consultation programs with them, which is why we were the first organization with Minnesota Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (MNSHARP) certification and the first with multiple certifications. This is an intentional and strategic collaboration to support jobsite safety.
