Safety is one of my personal core values for doing business in the construction industry, and it is also one of our company’s core values. I expect every employee, from the estimator to the field employee to the receptionist, to consider safety in every single action. Our safety department is charged with the goal of going beyond the minimum safety requirements and maintaining a high level of safety awareness on and off the job. Ultimately, it is every employee’s responsibility to ensure the safety of themselves and their coworkers.
National Safety Month
June is National Safety Month, and you will notice extra safety postings on our company Facebook page. Take advantage of these safety resources (part of our membership in the National Safety Council), and raise your level of safety consciousness to protect yourself and your fellow employees.

After such a successful year in 2010, our safety program continues to be an industry leader through both its results and its honors.
