Orientation and Training

M J Painting Contractor Corp. is committed to providing a safe and injury-free workplace.

We require all employees to adhere to established safe work practices, including but not limited to lockout/tagout, confined space entry, opening process piping/line breaking and facilities entrance control.

M J Painting is always expanding and improving our safety, health and environmental curriculum and guidelines.

New Employee Orientation

All new employees attend M J Painting Policies and Procedures Orientation. New hire orientation includes a safety knowledge review, DOT physical, personal protection equipment orientation, PPE instruction and a respiratory fit test.


Field Safety and In-House Training

All field employees are trained in first aid, CPR, are OSHA 10-hour certified and must pass drug and alcohol testing. Drivers must also pass a DOT physical.

Prior to work, field personnel hold daily safety tailgate meetings. Safety, health and environmental precautions are analyzed and discussed on every jobsite during these mandatory meetings.

Crew leaders use Job Safety Analysis (JSA) forms to accurately cover safety, health and environmental precautions of each employee. In-house, bi-weekly safety meetings are held and include training videos, group discussions and competency testing.
