Safety and 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

National Conductor Constructors, LLC is committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment that meets or exceeds our responsibilities to our employees and clients. Management is responsible for providing a safe working environment while maintaining quality and efficiency on our projects. Employees are responsible for complying with the applicable safety and health rules and regulations as established by National Conductor Constructors, LLC and the on-site, project specific safety program.

National Conductor Constructors, LLC Safety Program is based on the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) 1926 Construction Manual, Minnesota’s “A Workplace Accident and Injury Reduction” program (AWAIR), and individual project safety guidelines for the overall Company Safety Program. The program is continually updated by recommendations from project sites, safety engineers, project owners, periodic performance audits of projects, employees and OSHA updates to maintain National Conductor Constructors, LLC commitment to safety. On construction projects the employees look to the foreman as a direct representative of the Company. Therefore, they interpret the safety attitude of the individual foreman as that of the Company. The safety program operates on the basis that accident prevention is essential for an efficient operation.
