Gary Bailey, DEC Safety Manager, CSHO (Construction & General Industry)
My passion is working with people. For the past ten years I have been enjoying a second career in promoting and motivating individuals in the field of safety. Prior to taking the role of Safety Manager for Dausin Electric I was part of a Risk Management / Safety team. I have completed over 520 hours of OSHA safety training, through Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), and hold the designation of a Certified Safety Health Official in both General Industry and Construction, with the additional authorization as an Outreach Training Instructor.
At DEC we have taken great strides in revamping the safety programs. As an Outreach Training Instructor for OSHA 10 and OSHA 30, we have ensured that all of our field staff successfully complete OSHA required courses. Additionally, we maintain current with any and all changes to Construction and General Industry Standards, to include but not limited to:
- Fall protection
- Fork lift
- Aerial lifts/scissor lifts
- Permit required confined space
- GHS / HAZCOM
- Certification programs
On our jobsites you can identify the different degrees of achievement by the different colors of our hard hats: Master Electricians /Supervisors /management wear RED HATS, Journeyman electricians wear GREY HATS and apprentice electricians wear WHITE HATS with stickers indicating + or – 3 years of training.
Ronnie Dausin and the Dausin Electric team provide the necessary means to ensure effective safety is provided. Our safety programs focus on health and safety concerns that determine the best way to deal with particular hazards. When a hazard is identified, we will first try to remove it entirely. If that is not feasible, we will then train workers to protect themselves, if necessary, against the remaining hazard.
At a minimum, our employees know the general safety and health rules of the works specific site hazards and the safe work practices needed to help control exposure, and the individual role in all types of emergency situations. We will ensure all employees understand the hazards to which they may be exposed and how to prevent harm to themselves and others.
