In the May issue of BIC Magazine, Brock is noted as being in “league of their own.” The company is one of North America’s largest specialty soft craft services providers, with offices and project sites throughout the U.S. and Canada. Driven by a commitment to excellence, the primary concern for Brock in all facets of operations is the total commitment, attention and dedication to the safety of our employees and other contractors on our shared jobsites. We have established processes and procedures that have enabled us to provide customers with the trust and confidence that Brock’s nationally recognized and award-winning safety programs.
The OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) promotes effective worksite-based safety and health. By participating in VPP, management, labor, and OSHA establish cooperative relationships at workplaces that have implemented a comprehensive safety and health management system. Approval into VPP is OSHA’s official recognition of the outstanding efforts employers and employees who have achieved exemplary occupational safety and health.
As a company, we have decided to pursue VPP status because meeting the minimum expectations is not sufficient; we continuously seek to excel and be the best of the best. With this goal in mind, we structured our safety and health management programs to go above and beyond any regulatory or industry expectations. A jobsite that is adequately applying our safety and health programs is already prepared for the rigorous auditing required in the VPP process.
Brock currently has 18 jobsites that are recognized as VPP Star Site locations, which is about triple the number of sites held by any other contractor in a similar business. In addition, in 2019, Brock was awarded 15 Star of Excellence Awards, one Super Star Award from Region VI OSHA, and four Special Government Employee (SGE) Recognition Awards by the 2019 Region VI Voluntary Protection Programs Participants’ Association.
To receive the Star of Excellence Award, a company must have an injury/illness rate during the previous year that is 90% below the national average for the industry in which it is working.
Safety is a foundational value at Brock and the responsibility of each team member. Brock’s focus on safety excellence begins with a common culture of respect and caring and the relentless pursuit of a zero-harm work environment. Brock is committed to achieving world-class safety performance and leading the specialty soft craft industry with its results.
