Safety

Crews Stretching

Safety is a #1 concern of all employees of Dennis’ 7 Dees. We have created a culture of safety that is demonstrated by the awards we regularly receive both on a local and national level. Our MOD rating is far below the industry average, which shows our dedication and commitment to keeping our employees and others safe.

Safety Committee

We have an active Safety Committee that includes representatives from all departments. This committee meets monthly to discuss any concerns or issues that arise regarding safety. During these meetings, members develop and implement solutions for their safety concerns and discuss problems and other safety issues with which the company is confronted. They also review safety suggestions made by other employees. At these meeting all incidents or accidents are reviewed by the committee to determine what training or information can be given to the employees to avoid the situations from reoccurring.

Safety Awards

PLANET’s Safety Recognition Awards Program, sponsored by CNA, is designed to reward green industry professionals who consistently demonstrate their commitment to safety, and reflects the dedication of these individuals and their companies to creating and maintaining safe work environments.

The Safety Achievement Award honors those companies with thorough, high-performing, safety programs that create and maintain safe work environments in the green industry. Companies are eligible for this award if they demonstrate outstanding safety performance in the workplace based on their combined fleet and employee incident rates

Below are the most current safety awards received from the Professional Landscape Network (PLANET) and the Associated Landscape Contractors of America (ALCA), which merged to create PLANET.
