Know Safety; No Injury
Safety protects workers from injury and illness, and reduces absenteeism and turnover. It also increases productivity and quality, and raises employee morale. We use a proactive approach with weekly inspections of the job site. During the inspection, current and future hazards are reviewed and a plan for hazard prevention is put into place.
