We maintain a staff of thirteen safety professionals with backgrounds in civil engineering, industrial hygiene, mining, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, chemical, refinery, and power generation. Our staff includes two Certified Safety Professionals (CSP), an Associate Safety Professional, two Certified Safety Professionals (CSP), five OSHA Construction Outreach Trainers, two former OSHA compliance officers, and five Special Government Employees (SGE). Brandenburg personnel actively participate on the National Demolition Association’s (NDA) safety committee, serving as Chairmen for more than 10 years.
Brandenburg promotes safe work practices through the use of a safety-based financial incentive program, intensive and continual worker training, and strict enforcement of the written safety program.
