Corporate Safety Officer


AEC's Corporate Safety Officer (CSO) is a retired Army EM-385-1-1 safety specialist. Mr. Joe Sherman, CSO, reports directly to the President of the firm and has jurisdiction over all AEC construction projects. Each jobsite Safety Manager is accountable to Mr. Sherman for guidance, reporting and training. Mr. Sherman discovers and implements cutting edge safety technology and training for all AEC personnel working in the field. As Corporate Safety Officer, Mr. Sherman ensures all personnel, including project Superintendents and Safety Managers have completed all required training, including: OSHA 10 Hour and 30 hour, EM 385-1-1 40 hour, first aid and CPR training, and have the appropriate level of Safety Certifications required per each project's specifications. Mr. Sherman physically conducts periodic monthly "on site" safety audit at AEC job sites. The audit consists of a standard safety inspection of all sites, performed according to a critical items checklist provided by NAVFAC. All construction work sites are validated and scored according to corporate and government safety standards. The results are posted for all employees to "learn from the mistakes of others and to learn from the good ideas of others" in our monthly Corporate Safety Bulletin. Each Safety Manager reports to Mr. Sherman, and is responsible for certifying that all workers are aware of proper safety procedures. Daily tail-gate safety training sessions are conducted by reviewing the Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) and Best Management Practices (BMP's) to ensure all employees understand the particular dangers and hazards of the work in progress and that all site workers are familiar with safe operation and handling of equipment and materials ensuring all work is implemented in complete compliance with all U.S. Department of the Navy safety and health requirements as well as the USACE. Any task the Safety Manager observes being performed in an unsafe manner or without appropriate safety precautions is halted immediately until proper safety procedures can be instituted.
