We strive to maintain a workplace environment that fosters the health and well-being of our employees, which means safety first. We’ve upgraded our safety measures in a number of areas, including engineering and fabrication of a custom railing system that provides leading-edge fall protection.

Our safety director, Ron Fowler, works closely with third-party safety consultants, White Mountain Risk Management, performing weekly visits to every jobsite. And our field crews have regular toolbox talks to keep safe practices top of mind.

We schedule two safety days a year—all-day trainings where we discuss potential hazards and how to mitigate them. And safety training is ongoing, including OSHA 10- and 30-hour certifications, rigger/signalperson training, NCCCO crane-operator training, as well as training in fall-protection, and trench work.

Experience is on our side: we rely heavily on our field leadership, who bring a level of expertise that translates to safer jobsites and more safety-conscious crews.
