PPE On Every JOB

Personal Protective Equipment is equipment that protects workers against health or safety risks on the job and reduces employee exposure to hazards. Trinity Subsurface Engineering, LLC follows the training of the OSHA Toolbox Talks when dispatching its technicians daily. Accidents are extremely prominent in the construction industry in the absence or inadequate use of PPE. With our technicians, proper safety gear is never an issue. Job site to job site will vary on the required equipment below:

Our Response to Covid

As the north eastern / mid atlantic region progresses through the phases of state-level guidelines, Trinity has adopted strict COVID-19 protocol. 

Technicians conduct a job hazard analysis to help determine whether work activities require close contact (within 6 feet) between workers and customers, visitors, or other members of the public. 

To prevent transmission, face coverings are required in the office and work environment. Technicians are provided with sanitation supplies including face masks, hand sanitizer, and portable washing stations. All employees must complete a COVID symptom checklist before commuting to project sites.

Our office has instituted a rigorous cleaning program to make conditions safe for Trinity employees to pick up equipment. In these unprecedented times, we ask that you reach out to our leadership team to schedule a site walkthrough over the phone as we restrict in-house visits to employee personnel only.  no
