SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT

SETTING THE STANDARD FOR SAFETY

WE FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT EVERY SUCCESSFUL PROJECT STARTS WITH SAFE, SOUND, FUNDAMENTAL PRACTICES. THATíS WHY OUR COMPANY OBSERVES THE HIGHEST SAFETY STANDARDS SET FORTH BY OSHA (OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION), THE EPA (ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY) AND LOCAL REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS.

Our employees are trained to know safety comes first and no short cuts will be tolerated. We implement incentive programs to encourage safe work practices, while we strictly enforce our disciplinary policy for anyone not following our safety program.

In addition to our field supervisory personnel on all job sites, we also have additional dedicated field safety inspectors who visit the sites regularly. These field safety inspectors have the authority to correct any unsafe practices, including stopping production until corrections have been completed. In fact, on many issues we are even more stringent than OSHA requires. This ensures a quality work environment and is just one more example of our strong attention to detail in every facet of every job.

Additionally, all new employees are required to attend and pass safety orientation programs to address any conditions they may encounter on the job. Topics address everything from working with hazardous materials and practicing the safest standards, to what to do in the event of an emergency and who to contact.
