Safety Always Is The Top Priority

It’s not just Safety First; it’s Safety Always. All of our employees are committed to a safe workspace and take an active role to ensure that safety maintains a priority throughout the life of a project, from pre-planning through punch list.

Each one of our projects undergoes an initial safety evaluation and site safety. Logistic training is conducted for all employees prior to entering a job site, as well. Safety briefings are ongoing and a reassessment is achieved by routine safety inspections.

For subcontractors, safety is a major component for the pre qualification process and certain requirements, such as a written safety program. This process must be met prior to a subcontractor being added to our database. All subcontractors receive our Safety Overview for Contractor Personnel with their contract and are required to accept the responsibility for compliance with our safety program and all OSHA safety standards by signing and returning the Acceptance of A&M Construction’s Safety and Health Program form.

Safety isn’t just a byword at A&M Construction, it’s a commitment. All of our full-time field personnel have attended OSHA’s 10-hour Safety Standards for the Construction Industry course and participate in regularly scheduled training. All personnel are empowered to correct safety issues on the spot.

Safe construction zones equate to more efficient project schedules, lower project costs, and improved quality of life for our employees. It’s the right way to run a project and it’s the only way we run our business.
