Safety is a responsibility of each EMJ Corporation employee and is a significant measurement of job performance. CORE Safety assists EMJ in leading safety trainings, educating our teams on the latest safety policies and procedures, and ensuring that our teams are prepared for the job site.
During EMJ’s company-wide 50th Anniversary Meeting, CORE Safety spotlighted individuals throughout our family of companies who went above and beyond the safety responsibilities of their standard job duties.
EMJ Construction Superintendent Ray Alamo was selected as the 2018 “Best of the Best” Superintendent for his commitment to job site safety.
The Best of the Best Superintendent exhibits the following criteria:
• Positive attitude and behavior toward safety
• Plans ahead and foresees potential mishaps and intervenes
• Engages others in safe behavior and practices
• Maintains a clean and organized job site
• Maintains accurate, well-written and timely documentation
• Promotes a safety-conscious culture and mindset within his team
In addition to excelling at all of the above criteria, Alamo received this award for exhibiting EMJ’s values on and off of the job site.
In presenting the award, Jorge Torres, Director of Safety Services at CORE Safety Group, said, “[Ray] truly cares about each and every person that steps on his project, and his team members feel that and work hard for him.”
Torres added that Ray is always proactive in reaching out to CORE and the preconstruction team to ensure that subcontractors are fully pre-qualified, as well as to understand what assistance they may need from him. Alamo calls subcontractors directly to let them know, in no uncertain terms, what they will need before they can step on site and holds them accountable every day for those requirements.
This was recently said by a CORE Safety supervisor:
“Ray has a true passion for safety and strives to ensure his projects are as safe as possible. He takes every opportunity to learn and understand more about safety—even obtaining the Safety Trained Supervisor in Construction designation by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals. His hard work and dedication to the EMJ safety program is an invaluable asset by all accounts.”
Visit one of his projects and talk to the workers; they will tell you how much they respect, trust and enjoy working with Ray Alamo. In addition to his recognition by CORE, his team has received the Florida Sunshine State Safety Recognition Award presented by the OSHA Consultation Program at the University of South Florida several times.
Congratulations, Ray, and thank you for your commitment to safety on every project.
