Safety First

Marsden Services Safety 360 - Live Safe Work Safe

Safety Mission Statement

Our people are our most important resource and ensuring their safety is our primary responsibility.

We are committed to ensuring our clients and our associates are provided a safe and healthy work environment where safe behavior is recognized and rewarded and unsafe behavior is identified and eliminated.


Environmental, Health and Safety Policy

As part of the Marsden Enterprise, Sunstate Mechanical Services’ Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) policy forms the basis of and serves as our commitment to a culture of continuous improvement. The scope of this policy encompasses all employees. Management is responsible for establishing and implementing this policy.

Our purpose is to bring building maintenance services to our clients and create healthy, clean and safe environments that significantly improve their work environments. Excellence in this area is a non-negotiable, core enterprise value. Therefore, our people are our most important resource and ensuring their health and safety, and that of our clients and visitors, in the buildings we service is our first responsibility.

We will focus our EHS efforts in the following areas.

Employees

We are committed to actively seeking the participation of all our employees in our EHS efforts by encouraging their involvement in recognizing and rewarding safe behaviors and identifying and eliminating unsafe behaviors and conditions.

To accomplish this mission, our associates shall be trained from the date of hire and throughout their tenure that they are obligated to:

  • Work safely
  • Identify, correct if able, and report unsafe acts and unsafe conditions
  • Accept personal responsibility for their safety as well as the safety of others

Personal Responsibility and Accountability

Through our safety culture we set the expectation that every employee takes personal responsibility for their own safety as well as the safety of their coworkers and visitors in the buildings we service. We hope to instill personal accountability, so each employee thinks about safety and incorporates it into all aspects of their life. Our ultimate goal for our Safety 360 Program is zero incidents and zero injuries (Work Safe Live Safe).

Leadership

Our executive and management teams will lead the way by establishing accountability to ensure continuous, measurable improvements and a proactive approach to incident prevention.

In support of this policy, we are committed to high EHS performance standards. Our success will be judged in achieving the following objectives:

  • Ensure compliance with applicable EHS laws in all states and communities that we serve.
  • Actively seeking and acting upon meaningful opportunities to reduce risk and improve our EHS performance.
  • Using environmentally preferable products whenever possible.
  • Select suppliers with consideration of their ability to provide safe and environmentally preferable products, where feasible.
  • Educate, train and motivate Sunstate associates to work and live in a safe, environmentally responsible manner.
  • Foster openness and discussion on EHS matters with our stakeholders, both internal and external; communicating risk, performance and progress.

Suppliers, Service Providers and Clients

We will partner with our suppliers, service providers and clients to promote the safe, compliant and sustainable use of our services.
This policy is supported by our Enterprise EHS Framework and is considered the individual and collective responsibility of all employees.

We're a Marsden Company!

What does it mean for Sunstate Mechanical to be a Marsden company? Well, it means that we are part of one of America’s largest privately-held commercial cleaning and security firms. Supporting 25 distinct brands under one umbrella is unique in our industry. But we think it is a better way to serve our thousands of clients.

National Scope

Our approach to providing nationwide coverage is different than our competitors. We have 25 wholly-owned operating companies that employ 10,500 people, covering 46 states, which everyday help American businesses, schools, and government entities keep 300 million square feet clean, cool, calibrated, and safe. While each company is deeply rooted in their hometowns, together we are a coast-to-coast powerhouse, ready to handle any need, big or small. That’s the Mardsen Way.

Local Dedication

We self-perform an astonishing 97% of our business. When we bring new companies into our family we keep their local offices and maintain human resources and recruiting in the community, which allows us to invest in our clients – by really being there. We believe our clients want the hometown team, but also want deep and meaningful support from a sophisticated partner.

Great Resources

One of the benefits of being a part of a firm like Marsden is that we can share resources from all of companies, producing exciting new content. You can find case studies and follow our blog. All of it is available at www.marsden.com. And check out our social media presence!
