Safety & Training Practices

Safety is a top priority for us. Since 1977 we have always worked safely and cautiously. We have trained employees to:

  • Understand company safety rules and policies
  • To use tools, equipment and personal protective equipment the way they were designed
  • To identify hazards and eliminate them
  • To immediately report all unsafe conditions to their supervisor
  • To only perform tasks for which they have been trained and when in doubt, stop and ask
  • To accept the "Zero Accident" philosophy

Safety Practices

We place a primary focus on HONESTY, QUALITY, and SAFETY. All of our employees are required to read and understand the manual and are tested annually. We also will adhere to our clients standards when they prefer or if the client’s standards are more stringent.

Our safety documentation consists of safety forms such as the, tail gate meeting form or also known as a daily safety meeting, the weekly safety meeting sign-in sheet, and of course the foreman’s daily journal. We also make sure that a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is on every site.
