Our Safety Program
Biscayne utilizes the US Army Corps of Engineers Site Safety Plan format (EM-385 1.1) as a basis for all Site Specific Safety Plans. The criteria and requirements of the Corp of Engineers Safety Program are more stringent and comprehensive than OSHA requirements. The guidelines, procedures and in particular, the Activity Hazard Analysis, provide a broad, all-encompassing approach that is focused on preventative measures geared toward deterring safety incidents and avoiding accidents. Our current EMR score for 2019 is 0.81 What’s an EMR score?
