Safety is our Top Priority and Commitment

Safety is our commitment and our #1 core value

Safety Focus Events 

Our onboarding process consists of each employee going through a safety orientation that covers the following: Fall Protection, Ladder Safety, and Construction Safety 101.

We perform monthly meetings with our Field Foremen to go over safety procedures. Every quarter, we perform a safety stand down with all our employees and take refresher courses, and address company safety issues and concerns.

Toolbox Talks

Weekly toolbox talks give foremen and field leadership a crucial opportunity to communicate job-specific safety messages and address issues related to upcoming tasks on the project.

Establishing an honest, open, and frequent dialogue among team members on a project is critical to setting the groundwork for safe daily practices.
