WORKSAFE is the nation’s first safety program involving a public-private partnership. The Iowa Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Iowa OSHA) and Master Builders of Iowa launched WORKSAFE in September 2012 by offering a safety service that is a customized approach, unique to each project owner and job site team. WORKSAFE is a construction job site safety program that consists of pre-construction planning, job site surveys focused on preventing hazardous conditions from occurring and job site recognition that safety is a top priority for all involved in the project.  We encourage all owners, design professionals, contractors and service providers to learn more about the WORKSAFE program.  Partner with us in leading the way toward injury prevention, preservation of life and ultimately, safe job sites.

WORKSAFE PACKAGE

Pre-Construction Safety Review
A meeting is held with all contractors of the WORKSAFE project. During this meeting, hazardous activities are identified and questions are asked regarding how these hazards will be controlled. Best practices are determined and a plan of action is developed and forwarded to all contractors on the project.

Job Site Safety Surveys
Safety surveys are conducted on the WORKSAFE project by OSHA Consultation and Master Builders of Iowa. While on the job site, MBI Safety consultants conduct a thorough assessment of all aspects of the site. Any issues that need to be corrected are addressed from a coaching perspective and all site operations that were found to be in alignment with OSHA standards are noted. These reports are then generated and forwarded to all contractors on the site.

Project Recognition
An important component of the program is making a statement to the public that safety is important to everyone on the project.

  • A WORKSAFE banner is provided to display at the job site
  • WORKSAFE hard hat stickers are provided to all workers on the project
  • A press release is prepared and sent to local media outlets (optional)
  • WORKSAFE projects are recognized through MBI communications and listed on the MBI website

Access to MBI Safety Services
The general and all subcontractors on the project are eligible to receive safety services from MBI throughout the duration of the project, including:

  • 24/7 access to construction-specific safety professionals via phone, text or email
  • OSHA citation assistance
  • Tool-box talks
  • Training-on-demand services
  • WORKSAFE Record

Special Package Pricing
For optimal safety results, safety professionals recommend additional site visits depending on the duration of the project.  For this reason, we have developed a special discounted pricing structure.

We would be happy to explain the benefits that WORKSAFE can bring to your jobsite.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
