GEW-LLC provides a variety of construction related services. These include but are not limited to:
Project Management: We work with or complete the development of contract specifications and/or site specific safety programs: for Owners, Insurers, General Contractors, Construction Managers, and subcontractors. This includes all aspects of the safety process from: identification of project and/or contract specific claim/risk potentials, writing contract specifications, attending/presenting at pre-bid meetings, developing and implementing project specific EHS (environmental, health and safety) programs, providing guidance, education and/or training to site management, supervision and craft employees.
Project Oversight: GEW-LLC has provided project managers to implement and manage site specific EHS programs. This includes both onsite fulltime as well as part-time safety professionals.
Project Safety: GEW-LLC provides safety professionals and managers to implement and management site specific safety programs for the all aspects of the project. In addition to conducting field audits, we are able to conduct various different types of training to both supervisors as well as craft specific.
Claims Management/Return to Work: The success of many safety programs is knowing where the claims may come from and working with all involved to prevent these losses. However, when needed, we are experienced in working with adjusters in managing return to work programs and work closely with insurers, brokers, the employer and the injured individual to reduce the impact of the claim/injured to the lowest possible denominator.
Accident Investigation/Crises Management: If needed GEW-LLC partners have been involved in OSHA investigations, as well as, construction related catastrophes. It is our goal never to have to supply these services to our customers; however our customers are assured if needed, we have “been in the heat of fire”.
Expert Consulting and Witnessing: GEW-LLC provides a unique opportunity to our customers. As we have provided expert testimony in various construction safety court cases, we bring years of experience to our customers with “court” experienced safety professionals.
