SAFETY

At Garland, we provide safety inspections and site reviews on all projects to ensure workers comply with company policies and government safety regulations. Additionally, Dan O’Neill, General Superintendent, ensures site safety across all active job sites.  He has over 25 years of experience in the construction industry and, along with management, is responsible for creating and implementing job-specific safety plans, company safety policies, workplace inspections, accident investigations, training, and compliance with the federal Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. Our safety plans also incorporate our subcontractors and vendors while working to adhere to specific building programs as well.

Garland Building has no OSHA recordable incidents in the 12 years we have been in business.

At Garland Building safety is everyone’s responsibility… we are DEDICATED TO SAFETY.

PERMIT CONNECTIONS

Boston’s permitting process is wrought with complexities and vague subtleties. Missteps cause delays costing valuable time and money. Acting as your liaison, we’ll remove the guesswork from the permit process. We research, complete your application, acquire and deliver permits for all of your City of Boston projects. We recognize the importance of building and maintaining trust to promote longterm relationships with our customers, our employees and the City of Boston personnel. These relationships are ultimately critical to making any project happen.
