In our many decades as a contractor, weve experienced a number of boom and bust cycles. One thing has held true throughout these cycles and it holds true today: the men and women in our lines of work are hardy, resilient folks.
From building roads, bridges and runways, to mining aggregates, to building and operating petroleum terminals, the work we do is complex and often involves very challenging conditions.
The long-term success weve been blessed with is a testament to the character and skills of our employees, especially those who have experienced one or more of these cycles themselves.
As we continue to work diligently, with our focus on safety and quality throughout the markets phases, we pave the way for many more decades of success together.
Employees sometimes ask why they are required to wear hard hats on our road construction or site development projects, or at one of our quarry locations or petroleum terminals. After all, if the work takes place outside, what is going to fall on them?
Wearing a hard hat protects the employee from any impact to the top of the head, not just from falling objects.
Whether someone is entering or leaving a truck or equipment cab, working around equipment with buckets or booms, or coordinating their efforts with others who may be handling heavy objects or using long-handled tools, wearing a hard hat protects against a nasty bump on the noggin or far worse.
Hard hats are a necessary item in our personal protective gear and their use is a mandatory part of our safety protocol.
