Gene James becomes only MIOSHA Teaching Institute Level One Safety and Health Professional in the U.P.
Moyle's Safety Director, Gene James, has earned MTI Level One Certification for construction. He joins a select group of only thirty in the Michigan, and the only one in the Upper Peninsula. Gene was required to take the same type of courses as MIOSHA professional staff.
The MIOSHA Training Institute introduced the MTI Certification Program on October 1, 2007. It offers participants an opportunity to be recognized for their educational efforts and increased technical expertise. Level One allows the participant to begin the process of developing a safety and health management system while becoming familiar with MIOSHA Standards and other relevant topics.
By achieving this certification, Gene represents Moyle's continued commitment to safety. An additional benefit of the certification is lower insurance rates and less rigorous MIOSHA jobsite inspections.

Moyle wins ABC STEP Award
Moyle Construction has received the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. STEP (Safety Training and Evaluation Process) GOLD AWARD from the National ABC Safety Committee. The award recognizes a company's commitment to develop a safety program that produces a safe workplace. The Award Committee acknowledged Moyle's effort to maintain and continually improve an outstanding safety program.
At Moyle Companies, employee safety is paramount in our daily operations. The success we have achieved in this area is evident in the fact that we have surpassed the quarter of a million hours worked without a lost time accident.
Regulations and requirements for safety and health on the job are continually being revised to be more stringent in the protection of employees. We support these initiatives and take a proactive approach to remain a step ahead of any new enforcement issues by national and state regulators.
We are proud that this progressive focus on safety resulted in 80% of Moyle jobsite inspections by MIOSHA and OSHA were found to be "clean" inspections with no violations in 2007 and 2008.
Our employees are trained at all levels and trades on relevant safety topics. Moyle annually invests 1500 hours on safety and health training. This philosophy of safety and heath are incorporated throughout the company organization. An effective Safety and Health Program can only work with support and positive communication from top management. When top management carries the "safety torch", it can't help but be successful.
The company wide focus on safety we employ at Moyle extends beyond our employees to include visitors to the jobsite, subcontractors, and our client's staff. It is our commitment to employ safety practices that not only meet all state and national regulations, but our own high standards.
