Streeter Associates SafetyStreeter Associates' commitment to safety starts at the top. All upper management, Project Managers, Project Estimators and Superintendents attend regular company-wide safety meetings. We have a comprehensive on-going safety and health program that is designed to provide an accident-free and illness-free work environment by conducting safety and health training, hazard communication training, weekly on-site "Tool Box" safety meetings and OSHA Construction Safety Programs.

As Construction Manager, Streeter Associates, Inc. conducts a "Pre-Job Safety and Hazard Communication Contractor Review" as well as joint "Safety Audits" with all site contractors. This enables us to demonstrate our commitment to safety, review the contractors' commitment to safety, and build a cooperative relationship.

All Streeter Associates employees are subject to a mandatory drug-testing policy to ensure that our personnel are making clear and prudent decisions at all times. In a number of cases, we may require our sub-contracting partners to conduct similar testing with their teams as a part of the pre-construction process.
