We have an unfailing commitment to safety first, every single day, no matter how large or small the project, and that is why it is included as one of our core values. We do this not just because of mandated safety requirements, but because we genuinely believe that every employee should return home safely to their family every week. We continually invest in safety training for our employees. Additionally, our subcontractors are committed to our safety programs and zero injury goals. We have an outstanding safety record, as evidenced by the awards we have received over the years.
