We Are Committed to Sustainable Business Practices
We take every necessary step to return the land to the community in such a state that it may be used for everything from schools to gardens, or parks. Our highest priority is our responsibility to the community, and with that in mind say “If it’s not sustainable, it isn’t good business.”
Zero Fatalities and Zero Accidents Two Years Running.
Our safety culture is reinforced through policies, management systems and day-to-day practices that hold us all accountable for health and safety. Our safety culture relies on teams and individuals committed to working together to create and maintain a workplace where potential hazards are managed and controlled.
We prioritize a safe work culture in recruiting and hiring new employees, seeking out people who are as committed to safety as we are. We hold our third-party vendors, suppliers, contractors and on-site tenants to the same high safety and health standards that guide our people every day and we work to enable them to adhere to our standards.
Our business environment is affected by the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA) and the Mine Safety and Health Act (MSHA).
As a testament to our commitment to Safety our Company has not received any OSHA citations. Safety is at the forefront of all our operations and is the first item on all meeting agendas. We talk about and assess hazards through the use of daily jobsite safety assessments. Our safety committees and the safety training that we provide to our employees reinforce our commitment to send all everyone home injury-free.
