There is no facet of our work on which we place greater emphasis than SAFETY.  We are relentless in our commitment to provide a safe and healthy working environment for our employees, subcontractors and suppliers.  We will maintain our projects in a manner that does not cause undue risks to our clients Staff, Visitors, Vendors or Suppliers.

  • Provision for all required PPE including hardhats, safety glasses, ear plugs and gloves as well as instructions regarding their proper use.
  • Hardhats required on all jobs, at all times.
  • Weekly (Minimum) Project Toolbox Safety Meetings.  This is a requirement for all on site Subcontractors as well.
  • Inclusion of a “Subcontractors Safety Responsibilities” agreement as part of all Subcontract Agreements.  This document must be signed by an officer for each Subcontractor on every job.
  • Daily job walks and project risk assessments by Project Superintendents.
  • HazMat communication and accessibility to HazMat information by all employees.
