We view safety as the highest priority that extends from the project throughout the corporate levels of the company. For us, safety is not a slogan, it is a value ingrained in our corporate culture. It is a deliverable to our clients in the same way that cost, quality and schedule are deliverables. Our Corporate Safety & Health Program is integrated into our project process. It requires preplanning of work activities to guide implementation of safe work measures.
Our Safety & Health Department leads comprehensive safety training, including courses like the OSHA 10-Hour Construction/General Industry Safety Training, 40-Hour Hazwoper Training, First Aid/CPR, and many other hazard-specific safety training courses. The group is integrated as a function of the safety process and is a key factor to keeping a job on time and within budget.
Zero recordable incidents is always our project goal.
Our Safety Record
