COVID-19 Safety Information

Safety First

OSHASafety is a value we take seriously and with the advent of the Coronavirus, Nelson Air has been well-prepared to serve the need for reliable, safe, and high-quality work. We have been called upon to fabricate and install thousands of pounds of ductwork, new Air Handling Units, Heat Exchangers, VAV’s & Fan Coil Units, and condensing units with multiple evaporators at several high profile healthcare facilities.

We implement a safety-first approach to every project. We are diligent about minimizing risk and the potential for injury. We educate our staff and partners on equipment, tools, and best practices. In addition, prior to the NYC mandate Nelson Air Device Corporation had all onsite staff OSHA-62 hour certified as well as our in-house personnel, Nelson Air employees, and 3rd-party safety consultants that visit sites on a bi-weekly basis and provide reports on the safety conditions of the entire project.

Key Points

  • All management staff is OSHA 62 hour certified.
  • Our experienced staff  oversees all mechanical construction, including safety, infection control, LEEDS, and coordination. 
  • Daily pre-task planning and procedural methods are used to ensure the safest working environment.  
  • Lean construction methods are implemented to keep a safe clean and productive job site.  
  • We provide a detailed site-specific safety project manual that includes guidelines and procedures for safety.
  • Our site safety manager’s sole responsibility is to maintain a safe working environment in accordance with the rules and regulations of OSHA, ICRA, construction managers and individual campuses. 
  • Our project team will coordinate with a 3rd party safety consultant (hired by Nelson Air) that will visit the site on a bi-weekly basis to provide reports on the safety conditions of the entire project, not just that of the mechanical contractor.
