We strive for an accident-free workplace through effective administration, education and training. Should an injury occur, we will facilitate the quickest and safest return to work of employees.

Our philosophy: Our stakeholders’ well-being is dependent on the health and safety of our workforce. We promise that every reasonable precaution will be taken for the protection of all employees. No job is to be regarded so urgent that time cannot be taken to perform it in a safe manner.

Supervisors are responsible for the health and safety of our employees and are required to ensure the safe use of machinery and equipment in compliance with established safe work practices and equipment procedures. Workers must receive adequate training in their specific work tasks to protect their health and safety.

All supervisors, employees and subcontractors must protect the health and safety of themselves and their fellow workers by working in compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Administration(OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and all applicable regulations and safe work practices and procedures we’ve established.

We recognize that a safe work environment can be established and sustained only through a united effort. Your attitude and cooperation in promoting accident prevention assists in achieving our goal, Home Safe Every Day, and makes our company a great place to work where employees share in the company’s growth and success. We work together to prevent unwanted losses, personal injuries and illnesses.
