Lead by our Safety Manager and a group of employees, we have a safety committee that is dedicated to researching, discussing and implementing best safety practices company-wide.
The committee meets monthly to review new safety protocols issued by OSHA and formulates a plan to gather necessary equipment and training to implement the new regulation. Current safety issues, new ideas, challenges and victories are shared by the group so that they can be learned from and shared in White Board Meetings to all field employees. The safety committee takes pride in keeping their peers safe, healthy and informed.

Safety training and workforce development are a critical component to completing our safety program. We offer new-hire safety training to all new employees, despite years of experience to welcome new team members to our safety-based culture and eliminate poor habits.
New-hire trainings entail two full days of comprehensive training, covering all essential OSHA and Wickersham safety topics. Videos, PowerPoint presentations, interactive Q&A discussions and testing are performed to provide a well-rounded safety program for our new employees. Two full days of safety training is unique in our industry, but we find this investment absolutely essential for our employees to live and breathe the Wickersham safety standard from day one.
We also provide task-specific training and refresher trainings, including 10 and 30 hour OSHA training, CPR, confined space, crane CCO training, and equipment training including rigger, forklift, aerial lift and excavation equipment training and more.
