Training & Safety Initiatives

Dedicated & Committed to Safety


Our Safety Department is known to be the best and the brightest within our industry. We have 4 full time Safety Technicians under the leadership of our Safety Director, Mike McCafferty. These individuals are dedicated to our commitment to safety. We have a Near Miss Award Program, in which all employees are asked to submit weekly any near miss reports to prevent an unsafe occurrence in the future. Summaries of these reports are gathered each month and emailed out to our Supervisors and Foremen to share with their job sites. To encourage this, they hold a monthly drawing for all who submit these reports, in which the employee drawn receives $100 reward for their commitment to safety. We also require all Supervisors and Foremen to submit Incident and Accident Reports if any unsafe occurrence occurs involving equipment or harm to another.

All safety personnel are OSHA 500 Trained and authorized to conduct OSHA 10 & 30 classes and MSHA training.  All of our supervisors are OSHA 30 trained and our labor force is OSHA 10 trained.  We offer additional safety training specific to each job site.  We have drug free certification in Alabama and Mississippi, and an active drug screening policy.
