AT A&R SAFETY IS A WAY OF LIFE
A&R’s employees are continuously trained in all safety procedures, both standard and specialized for the industries we serve. We do this, of course, for their personal safety, but also because it’s good business. A safe work environment means a more effective and efficient team, which means satisfied customers when our projects come in on-time and on-budget. Having a safe work environment is critical to our company’s success. Our dedication to employee safety is at the forefront of every service we offer. There is an age-old saying that suggests “safety is no accident.” At A&R, safety is no accident isn’t just a phrase; it’s a way of life.
Construction, demolition, and excavation all demand a constant and determined commitment to maintaining a safe work environment. At A&R, our employees know that we’ll do everything we can to minimize danger on the job while they adhere to our stringent safety guidelines. The result is fewer accidents, delays, or cost overruns.
With dedicated safety personnel overseeing the various work tasks of each project, you can rest assured that we are doing everything possible to avoid the disruption of a safety incident while keeping your project site safe and productive. Our Safety Department is staffed with seasoned construction professionals that know how to implement safety strategies that predict and prevent hazardous situations proactively. Awareness is our primary concern. We invest large amounts of our time and monetary resources into our training programs which continually provide top-of-mind awareness for our personnel both in the office and in the field.
We strive to do everything possible to ensure the safety of our employees and the end users of our projects. At A&R, we engage a full-time safety director and on-site safety representative, instituting a rigorous safety program and requiring our staff to update their knowledge of safety procedures frequently. All of this has led to us having one of the most highly regarded safety programs in our marketplace. It also helps reduce our costs, allowing savings we can pass on to our clients.
