The LeChase Life Saving Commitments

What is it?

The objective of the LeChase Life Saving Commitments initiative is to eliminate serious injury and death on all LeChase jobsites.

Each commitment represents a high-hazard activity that could cause serious injury and death in the workplace. The program identifies the hazards related to the commitment—or “What can kill you?”—and provides ways for employees, including subcontractors, to eliminate or control these hazards.

The LeChase Life Saving Commitments initiative is the outcome of extensive research and best practices among ACIG and industry leaders.

"LeChase has a mindset embraced throughout the organization that all injuries are preventable. We empower our employees and our subcontractors with the ability to stop any action they feel is unsafe. By doing this, we are changing the landscape of safety on our job sites and better positioning us on our journey to World Class Safety."
