Safety doesn't just happen.

At Dunbar,

Safety is a Commitment


Dunbar plans safety into all of our projects through pre-task planning. Every foreman ensures all details are covered by completing a Job Safety Analysis (JSA) and documenting this work through the form shown here. This Dunbar initiative goes above and beyond OSHA requirements -- because we want to do what is right, not just what is required. Note the center section which is completed after the lunch break to review changing working conditions and needs.

Our clients have been impressed by this commitment and have asked for this form to incorporate into their safety programs. Click on the form at left to enlarge it and check out the details!

Keeping our people safe is the first priority at Dunbar Mechanical – that’s why it was especially gratifying to have a Construction Manager on a food processing project tell us:

Safety was another really big plus for you. We’re anal retentive about safety here and you are, too. Our companies have the same level of vigilance about safety and that makes it good when we’re working together.

And to hear this from a Chemical processing client:

I liked your fall protection. Part of this work required a platform to be built and when you were working at the top you were very careful and made sure you were tied off. I didn’t have to worry about someone stepping over the edge. You also inquired about hot work permits and it was obvious you were very safety conscious all along.

Dunbar Mechanical continues to have our customers’ needs in mind and strives to provide best of class service. Dunbar Mechanical is more than a specialty contractor, we are your contractor. Contact the experienced professionals at Dunbar Mechanical for all of your mechanical contracting needs in northern Ohio and Michigan.
