Safeguarding the health and welfare of our employees, subcontractors, and site visitors is one of our highest priorities. Maintaining accident-free construction operations is not only our primary concern, but it is our utmost responsibility as contractors.

As founding members of the ABC Mass Workers’ Comp Self-Insurance Group, Kaplan has consistently been an early adopter of modern safety practices. We are industry leaders and our stellar safety record shows it.

Our success is a result of our company’s strong safety-focused culture and a clear understanding by all that “safety first” is not just a saying. Every Kaplan project meeting starts with a safety discussion. Our superintendents conduct site inspections daily.  All subcontractors must pass a stringent prequalification process. Safety permeates all our activities, and we participate in an annual 12-step audit of our practices.

We have annually been bestowed the Associated Builders & Contractors’ Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) Award and are recent recipients of the Diamond level award, the highest level of recognition and a benchmark standard for safety.

All Kaplan project managers and superintendents are OSHA30 certified. All carpenters and laborers carry a minimum of OSHA10 certification.  All field employees are First Aid and CPR certified.
