SAFETY, SUSTAINABILITY & INCLUSION

Safety

Ozanne’s most important personal and professional obligation is to provide our employees, subcontractors, suppliers, owners, and business associates with a work environment that maximizes health, wellness, and safety. 

Safety, wellness, and a positive mentality to construction work is at the very foundation of our culture. We strive to provide a ZERO accident, injury, and harm work culture by following these procedures:

  • Daily activity hazard discussions to ensure safe work operations.
  • Daily activity hazard analysis to identify high-risk work activities.
  • Weekly toolbox meetings to evaluate the week’s work activities and plan safety for the following week.
  • Project-specific site logistics, risk management, and safety plans.
  • Mandatory CPR training for all on-site supervisory personnel.
  • OSHA 30 training for all on-site supervisory personnel.
  • Online Safety Data sheets.
  • Third party safety audits conducted by Safety Resources, Inc.

Sustainability & Inclusion

We believe in the triple bottom approach to sustainability, maximizing the social (people), economic (profit), and environmental (planet) benefits of the project as requested by the owner.

  • We measure social sustainability through our policy of hiring local, minority, and female tradespeople in the construction workforce and tracking the results.
  • We measure economic sustainability through our policy of hiring local, minority, and female construction firms, providing them with technical assistance as needed. We also track the results of our enterprise inclusion efforts.
  • Many owners use LEED to measure the environmental sustainability of a project. We have completed gold, silver, and certified LEED projects.
  • We support workforce development and pre apprenticeship programs in Cuyahoga County.
  • We have participated in a number of projects covered by project labor and community benefits agreements.
  • To ensure long term growth and sustainability for our staff, we encourage and financially support ongoing training and certification programs for their professional development.

CASE STUDIES

American Airlines Columbus Hanger

American Airlines repair hanger in Columbus provides repair and maintenance for Americans fleet of jets. This facility typically services five aircraft per night but has the capacity to service up to seven. Planes fly into the Columbus airport and are serviced or repaired at night and return the next morning to run their regular routes throughout the country. Dependability of the equipment and service techs at this facility is mission critical to ensuring the safety of passengers but also the continuity of service and routes. If a plane is not returned to service the next day another will have to be brought in from a different and possibly remote location costing time and money.

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport

Ozanne Construction Company Inc. and DLR Group | Westlake Reed Leskosky have successfully teamed up on several design/build projects. Most notably, the CLE Parking Redevelopment Program – Phase II. This was a project the two firms teamed up on and completed in 2016 in time for the Republican National Convention. The 200,000 square foot structure, related site and utility work was completed from design through construction in a little over a year and provided a new landmark structure to greet people coming into the airport campus.
