Building L.I.F.E.® (Living Injury Free Everyday)
Coastal’s safety first philosophy is trademarked as Building L.I.F.E.® (Living Injury Free Everyday). The Building L.I.F.E. approach strives to eliminate all worksite incidents through pre-planning construction activities with safety engagement commencing at project pursuit. These standards along with our policies, mandatory safety inspections and approximately 25 training programs have created the most comprehensive and effective safety organization in the construction industry today. Building L.I.F.E. is supported by four guiding principles:
1) Injuries are Preventable
2) Perform a Job Only if it is Safe
3) Working Safely is a Condition of Employment
4) Practice and Expect Safe Behavior Everywhere, Every Day.
