COMMITMENT TO SAFETY
The KGS Senior Construction/Department Manager has revised and enforces a company-wide Accident Prevention Plan. KGS Regional Program Managers, Project Managers, and Site Superintendents (Project Safety Officers) propose additional safety requirements for each project, then submit them to the Senior Construction Manager for review and incorporation into the company plan. Upon approval of the recommendations, the Regional Program Manager supervises the Project Managers and Site Superintendents in the development and publication of project-level safety programs. These documents become the guidebooks for safe work throughout the Projects' duration. Superintendents enforce their safety programs by holding daily “tool box” reviews of the day’s planned work and potential safety issues, by convening weekly safety meetings, and by performing periodic job‐site Safety Inspections.

COMMITMENT TO QUALITY CONTROL
KGS Project Managers utilize KGS’s established, written QA/QC Plan to assure that Project, Code, and Construction Industry standards are met. KGS Site Superintendents are the company's on-site Quality Control Representatives. The Senior Construction/Department Manager, Regional Program Managers, and Superintendents review all project-specific requirements with the Project Manager, who then develops the Project QC/QA Program and monitors Project work with the owner’s on‐site representative or designee.
