As a leading builder, we believe that a healthy and safe work environment must be incorporated into the fabric of its daily operations. Our record of safety is remarkable considering the nature of our work on challenging projects and constrained sites, including operating college campuses, occupied medical office buildings, active businesses and historic facilities.
Our exceptional loss prevention and safety records are achieved through extensive training and development programs in which Blach employees, particularly our superintendents and foremen, participate on a regular basis. Our superintendents work closely with Blach’s dedicated Health and Safety team in order to enforce all aspects of the company’s detailed program, maintaining the highest safety standards.
Through the continued implementation of our Injury Illness Prevention Program (IIPP), our zero incident and accident rates are regularly recognized by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) and the AGC of America as among the top programs in the industry.
Most recently, we have been recognized as the third safest contractor in the nation (mid-sized contractors) as well as the first place recipient of the AGC of California safety excellence award.

As the company continues to grow in size, our safety program grows with us. We regularly seek out innovative ways to continuously improve the company's safety program, promote environmentally sensitive and safe behaviors and provide the best training and resources to achieve our goal of a zero-injury work environment.
